Russell Wilson Says Goodbye to the Sherriff

The Monday after the Super Bowl, Russell Wilson took to The Player’s Tribune to pen a letter to the man he beat for his own Super Bowl ring:

...You inspired me to work hard. To be disciplined. To be respectful. To take notes.
You inspired me to love the process. To love the sweat. To love the tears.
But most of all …
You inspired me to love the game.
Thanks, Peyton.
If this is it,

Thanks

Russell has previously talked about going to Manning’s QB Camp as a teenager during Super Bowl week when his Seahawks were scheduled to play and eventually beat Peyton’s Broncos in a very one-sided affair. Wilson is by no means the only NFL player to show his appreciation for #18, but he definitely had one of the cooler forums.

Here is a link to the whole letter: If this is It By Russell Wilson
