Videos: Gatorade Releases Powerful Tribute To Peyton Manning

The upcoming NFL season will be pretty strange without Peyton Manning behind center in Indianapolis or Denver. Manning retired after winning the Super Bowl in February, a fitting end to his impressive career. Today, Gatorade rolled out a very touching tribute to Manning, based on his penchant for sending hand-written letters to those close to him. The commercials features a number of former coaches, including Tony Dungy and Duke's David Cutcliffe, teammates like Jeff Saturday, and others, including his father Archie and brother Eli.

Gatorade also put out longer clips of some of the people included in the ad. Of note: ESPN's Chris Mortensen, who is currently battling throat cancer makes what For The Win believes is his first public appearance since news broke of his illness.

This is an incredibly cool campaign. Well done, Gatorade.
