Manning and Bailey: being teammates is paying off

Champ Bailey's thumbs got quite the workout in the offseason as he bombarded Peyton Manning with texts pleading with him to come to Denver.

Manning returned just two of them.

The first one basically said, "Thanks, I'll get back to you."

The second one, now, that's the one that got Bailey excited.

"Let's go!" it read.

And so, the two 11-time Pro Bowlers who had played in nine of the all-star games together were teammates at long last.

The pair of NFL greats in their mid-30s figured they'd make each other even better by playing together, and they say that's exactly what's happened over the last six months.
