Tom Brady sends amusing tweet about Eli Manning's retirement

New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady was among the many people congratulating Eli Manning on his retirement Friday - but he didn't miss the opportunity to remind the former New York Giant that his greatest accomplishments came at Brady's expense.

"I think they have a great relationship, " co-owner John Mara said. "And please no this, no Giant will ever wear number 10 again".

Tom Brady wished retiring Giants quarterback Eli Manning well in his retirement, but added there was something about Manning's career that he wishes was different.

The Giants also got their career leading passer in nearly every category in a career that started after NY acquired him on draft day in 2004 from the Chargers. It was Manning's New York Giants who beat them twice on football's biggest stage, including stopping a ideal season in its tracks.

The Giants chose to bring Manning back and have him count $23 million on the salary cap, yet he was benched after only two games.

So when Manning's National Football League retirement became official Friday, Brady offered a fitting congratulatory message.

"That's something I take seriously, his concern for it and the responsibility we all have as current Giants and where he's left the legacy of the organization". Manning has two Super Bowl rings to show for it, putting him in exclusive all-time company as a starting QB. I would like to do it this season. "I think that will serve him well going forward". If he wants to do it this year, we'll certainly do it this year. Sign up now for a free trial.
