Peyton Manning, Russell Wilson Watch Film Together 18 Years Later

Before his first season as the Broncos starting quarterback, Russell Wilson is getting advice from another legendary quarterback who had a career resurgence in Denver. On Saturday, Wilson posted a video on Twitter showing him and Peyton Manning watching film together.

In fact, Wilson claims he and Manning have talked football like this for at least 18 years.
