Jeff Saturday has spent 14 years on the NFL and this pro bowl will be his last. The center who snapped the ball to Peyton Manning for 12 of those 14 years plays in the NFC for his final season. In the Pro Bowl Saturday switched teams and lined up with the AFC team just so he could snap the football to Peyton Manning one last time. This is something I have never seen in the pro bowl, a NFC player lining up with the AFC’s offense.
It was the end of what will surely be an Hall Of Fame Career for both Saturday and Manning. It was great to see the two of them line up after being separated after Manning left the Colts and Saturday moving on to the Green Bay Packers. There were rumors earlier during the whole Manning deal with the Broncos that he wanted to take his center Jeff Saturday with him. It just didn’t work out but they did exchange the football in the 2013 pro bowl and it was a great thing to see. Good Luck to You Jeff Saturday….
