That’s the plea Justin Tuck would make to Peyton Manning, released Wednesday by the Colts and now perhaps the most compelling free agent ever in the NFL. There are reports 12 teams have expressed interest in Manning -- the Jets are one of those teams -- and Tuck wouldn’t mind seeing Eli’s older brother stay in the AFC.
Tuck, speaking Thursday to The Associated Press in Spain at Barcelona’s Global Sports Forum, said he hopes Peyton doesn’t, “come to the NFC East where I’ll have to play him twice a year.”
The only team in the division that has expressed interest in Manning is the Redskins.
There doesn’t seem to be any desire in Peyton to share a city with Eli or play in the same division with his younger brother.
Tuck also said he anticipates Manning will make team he signs with an instant contender.
