Peyton Manning bought custom-tailored suit for practice squad player

Here’s a good story coming out of this weeks Super Bowl hype….

Peyton Manning credits Jordan Taylor, a 23-year-old practice-squad receiver who doesn’t have a single catch in the NFL, for getting him through the season.

While Manning was rehabbing from a foot injury during the regular season, he turned to Taylor to be his warm-up partner, texting him for morning workouts and having Taylor run endless routes.

Since Manning came back in Week 17 of the regular season, he and Taylor have continued those workouts into the postseason.

As a thank-you, Manning helped Taylor out before the team went to San Francisco for Super Bowl 50.

Manning’s suit guy showed up at the team facility in Englewood, Colo. the next day and took all of Taylor’s measurements. The suit and a pair of shirts and ties arrived in time for the team’s Sunday departure, and Taylor proudly wore the fitted gray suit — complete with an orange-and-blue tie and blue-and-white pocket square — on the team flight.
