Peyton Manning Wants Eric Berry To Take It Easy On Him

As someone who has lived in Kansas City -- and seen a couple of depressing Chiefs and Colts playoff games - I'm not a big fan of Peyton Manning.

Manning, like Chiefs fifth round overall pick Eric Berry, is a former Tennessee Volunteer. Manning usually goes back to the campus to do a little training and get to know some of the players.

Now that he'll be playing against Berry, Manning recently said he hopes he remembers how nice he was.

Manning spoke highly when asked about former UT safety Eric Berry, who was selected with the fifth pick in the NFL draft by the Kansas City Chiefs, whom the Colts play this season.

“When he has a chance to hit me on a safety blitz, I hope he goes easy on me and remembers how nice I was to him,” Manning said. “It seems like all of (the former Vols in the NFL) haven’t always remembered that.”
