Eagles coach Andy Reid loves collecting quarterbacks, and he considered adding a very, very big one to his collection: Peyton Manning.
Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times reports that Reid wanted to jump into the Manning sweepstakes, and that it was Manning who didn’t like the idea.
Manning’s objection was less about the Eagles than about his discomfort about playing his brother Eli and the Giants twice a season.
