Peyton Manning is Working Out with the Duke Football Team

Insert your own Peyton Manning-is-at-an-ACC-level jokes here:

After a tweet from a Duke football player Wednesday, NBC-17 has confirmed that NFL quarterback Peyton Manning is in the Triangle working out with the Duke football team.

Matt Skura, a center for the Blue Devils, tweeted: “Got to stretch next to Peyton Manning today and say hello.”

NBC-17 has confirmed that Manning is working out with Duke’s football team. Current Duke Head Coach David Cutcliffe was Manning’s offensive coordinator at the University of Tennessee in the 1990s and remains a close family friend.

So, how long will it take for Jim Irsay to tweet out something in response to this report? Can the Colts just cut Peyton so that the Ravens, 49ers, Cardinals and everyone else can start courting the Hall of Famer? [NBC 17 via Weather Wes]
