On the day of Peyton Manning’s retirement announcement, fellow Super Bowl 50 quarterback Cam Newton sent his salute to one of the greatest of all time.

Newton posted an Instagram picture of himself with Manning from before last month’s Super Bowl saying that he is grateful to have shared the field with Manning in his final game.

Newton has long admired Manning and has spoken highly of Manning in several press conferences since joining the league in 2011. Both Manning and Newton were No. 1 overall picks, with Manning going to the Colts in 1997 and Newton to the Panthers in 2011.
