Eli Manning’s wry sense of humor is reflected in his retirement.
The former Giants quarterback and two-time Super Bowl champion tested his vertical jump at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and showcases his efforts in a recent Twitter video.
“Got to hit that red one for a 24-inch vertical, baby,” Manning, 41, said in the video before making an all-out effort and achieving his goal.
It’s always been fun to watch Manning’s athletics.
Though he doesn’t move nearly as gracefully as the vast majority of professional soccer players we’ve seen, Manning’s awareness of his limitations has made him exceptional at avoiding injury throughout his career.
Manning started in 210 consecutive games between 2004 and 2017 and never missed a game through injury in his career. His streak in consecutive games was the third-longest for any quarterback in NFL history.
He retired in early 2020 after 16 seasons in the NFL.
