Since announcing his retirement from the NFL, former Tennessee quarterback and Super Bowl 50 champion Peyton Manning may have gotten a little rusty.
In a segment promoting the Volunteers’ upcoming Battle at Bristol Motor Speedway against the Virginia Tech Hokies, Manning attempted a pass to two-time Daytona 500 champion and current pre-race analyst for FOX Sports, Michael Waltrip.
His first attempt didn’t go so well.

The NFL has eliminated the infamous tuck rule, so that might likely been ruled a fumble in a game situation. Luckily for Manning, it wasn’t, and his second attempt was much better, with Waltrip hauling in a nice catch.
