Ready or not, another Manning-James backcourt is coming in the NFL…so say Egelyn Jameswho guarantees TMZ Sports It will happen!
James told us in New York that he believed in his son, eden jamesand Peyton Manningnephew, Arch Manningwill rekindle the league’s legendary James Manning connection in just a few short years.
“I’m going to call it now,” Egerlin told us. “They’re all going to be in the NFL together. Next wave – 2.0!”
Edgerrin, whose son will be a freshman at Howard University. This year’s football team, committed hours after the No. 1 QB in the HS class in 2023, Committed to Texas.
“When I saw Arch Manning come out in 2023, my son was in Howard, so I said it’s going to be a reconnection in the future,” Edgerrin said. “You’re going to see my son – you’re going to see the James Manning connection.”
Of course, the first iteration of Manning and James went very well…Egerling lined up in the backcourt with Payton in Indianapolis from 1999 to 2005 — and the two put together flamboyant numbers.
It seems Edgerrin – who, by the way, also told us about a cool NFT project he’s been working on – can’t wait for Round 2 to wrap up.
