NFL Network: Peyton Manning at Michigan? Star QB says he considered being a Wolverine
The 1997 Heisman Trophy race ifamously came down to two players: Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning and Michigan football cornerback Charles Woodson.
Woodson eventually won out, but imagine how much more difficult the decision might have been if the two players were part of the same team.
Manning, who recently signed with the Denver Broncos, mentioned during a recent interview with the NFL Network that he had a tough time making a college choice, and Michigan was very much an option.
In the interview, Manning discussed the difficult decision he had to make recently as an NFL free agent, and likened the experience to days as a high school recruit.
"I remember the same feeling when I was in high school," Manning said. "I wanted to go to Ole Miss, I wanted to go to Florida, I wanted to go to Michigan, (but) you have to pick one."
