Manning, Stokley: Friends and ‘favorite teammates’

At 36, the receiver had no idea the quarterback’s comeback would be his own
Brandon Stokley canceled a 10-year anniversary trip with his wife to help an old friend make a comeback. And when Peyton Manning chose Denver, Stokley’s adopted hometown, to complete his comeback, he brought his old friend and wide receiver with him. “Brandon is one of my favorite teammates of all time,” Manning said. “For a guy his age to be able to keep his quickness is pretty rare for a wide receiver. He can be a matchup problem for teams.”
At 36, and with five regular-season games left, Brandon Stokley has 36 catches for 449 yards – his best numbers since 2008 – and five touchdowns. He has become the 11th player in NFL history 36 or older with at least 30 catches and five touchdowns in a season.
