Eli Manning on having another brother

The youngest of the three Mannings, later replied to that New Orleans Saints tweet by writing, “Looking good bro.” Being happy with the fact that a quarterback as good as Trevor would love to be a part of the Manning clan. Although it turns out that the New Orleans quarterback certainly has some connection with the Manning football family, as the old man Archie Manning has served his term from 1971 to 1982 in New Orleans Saints.

Following their father’s footsteps, son Eli Manning and Peyton Manning too became NFL quarterbacks for the New York Giants and the Indianapolis Colts, respectively. Peyton, who is a two time Super Bowl champion, ended his career with the Denver Broncos in 2015 who coincidentally drafted Trevor Siemian that same year. Eli played for 16 seasons with the New York Giants through and through. And just like his brother, Eli too won two Super Bowl championships during his career in the NFL.
