Ready or not, there will soon be another Manning-James backfield in the NFL… he says Edgerrin Jameswhich guarantees TMZ Sports it will happen!!!
James told us in New York that he believed his son, Eden Jamesand Peyton Manningthe nephew of, Manning Archwill rekindle the legendary James-Manning connection in the league in just a few years.
“I’m calling him right now,” Edgerrin told us. “They’re both going to be in the NFL together. The next wave – 2.0!”
Edgerrin, whose son will be a freshman at Howard Univ. football team this year, made the promise just hours after Arch, the top-ranked QB in the HS 2023 class, clerk in texas.
“When I saw Arch Manning come out in 2023, I have my son who’s at Howard, so I said it was going to be a reconnection going forward,” Edgerrin said. “You’re going to see my son – you’re going to see the James-Manning connection.”
Of course, Manning and James’ first iteration went extremely well… Edgerrin lined up in a backfield with Peyton from 1999-2005 at Indianapolis – and the pair racked up some showy numbers together.
It looks like Edgerrin – who, by the way, also told us about a cool NFT project he’s working on – can’t wait for Round 2 to wrap up.
Sketch it for around 2026!
