What's Peyton Manning's legacy? At worst, he's one of the classiest players of this or any other NFL generation.
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was part of a defense that absolutely dismantled Manning and the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, and yet Sherman said on ESPN's "Mike & Mike" show (via Pro Football Talk) on Monday morning that Manning sought out Sherman after the game to ask about his injured ankle.
Sherman suffered the high-ankle sprain during the game and tried to play through the pain but eventually had to be carted off. He rejoined his teammates in celebration on the sidelines wearing a walking boot.
After the game, Sherman took to Twitter to defend Manning's honor.
And he continued that thought on TV Monday morning.
And if that's not a huge part of Manning's lasting legacy, then something is wrong in this instant-analysis world we live in.
