Peyton Manning Bought Practice-Squad WR Custom Suit As Thanks
Back in December when Broncos QB Peyton Manning was rehabbing from a torn plantar fascia in his left foot, he needed a throwing partner for his early morning workouts. That partner was Jordan Taylor, a rookie from Rice and member of the practice squad. Per USA TODAY...
quote:

“I feel bad because I was running him into the ground and he hadn’t even started practice yet,” Manning said. “I have a bad habit of saying, just one more, and one more can turn into 10 more. I don’t think I could have gotten though my rehab and gotten back if it had not been for him. I am very grateful for his help.”
Once Denver made it to the Super Bowl, Taylor didn't have a nice suit for the trip to the big game, so he asked Peyton if he could borrow an old one of his...
quote:

"He texts me back and all he said was, 'I'll get you set up,'" Taylor told USA TODAY Sports. "I didn't know what that meant."

What it meant was Taylor was about to receive his first custom suit. 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.
And there you go...

Peyton should have asked his barber to come to the practice facility, too.

He said he didn't have a nice one. I don't know many 22 year olds that have full suit sets, much less nices ones. And he doesn't exactly have to meet the NFL media requirements so its not like it's a necessity.

I thought practice squad guys make around 90k/yr? Why couldn't he get a suit?
