Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady is one of the greatest "rivalries" in the NFL and the history of sports. However, both athletes are great friends that admire each other for what they do on and off the football field.

The respect is at an all-time high, and another example was shown on Thursday when Manning's agent revealed that his client did not want to be paid more than Brady when he was in negotiations with the Denver Broncos during the 2012 NFL free agency period.

Per MMQB.com, Manning's agent Tom Condon says Manning did not want to accept the initial $19.4 million deal that was on the table from Denver. With about 12 teams interested in him, Manning did not want to take any more than $18 million in his contract with the Broncos.
[...] The Broncos’ opening offer was $19.4 million a year. Condon phoned to tell Manning, who was incensed:

“I told you I didn’t want to make more than Brady!”

Condon apologized, hung up and called Manning’s wife, who responded, “I’ll take care of it,” and coaxed Manning to accept the Broncos’ offer.

Very interesting story.
