Peyton Manning thankful for friend

 

Peyton Manning felt right at home with Todd Helton and the Colorado Rockies. Manning dropped by Coors Field on Sunday morning to visit his pal before the Rockies played the New York Mets. Manning and Helton were quarterbacks at the University of Tennessee in the mid-1990s. Manning recently signed with the Denver Broncos to become their new QB. When Manning was going through his rehabilitation from neck surgery during the NFL lockout, Helton helped arrange for him to use the Rockies’ facilities to work out. “He’s a great friend. What he did for me last year, allowing me to use this facility, use the trainers to work out as part of my rehab process,” Manning said. “I’ve come a long way in a year. They were a big part of it. The whole Rockies organization” – AP
