New, comments

From NOLA.com: At the 20th annual Manning Passing Academy at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux this weekend, Manning got a surprise from Saints head coach Sean Payton, who was helping out at the four-day camp because his son, Connor, was a camper. According to Manning Passing Academy photographer Parker Waters, Payton surprised Manning during a Sunday morning meeting with a ring from the Saints to commemorate his induction into the Saints Ring of Honor in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
