Peyton Manning To Tom Brady: 'I Want The Bottle Of Wine Back, Too'

(CBS4) - The Sheriff has spoken: he wants his lovely letter and bottle of wine back from Tom Brady. CBS Sports reports Peyton Manning sent a two-page letter and some wine to Tom Brady following his decision to retire from the NFL last month.

After Brady performed an about-face and decided to continue playing, Manning jokingly said he wanted those gifts back.
