The life of a retired NFL superstar is a subject not often explored, but while most expect the likes of Peyton Manning to be playing golf, he may have gone a completely different way.
Manning retired this off-season after leading the Denver Broncos to success in Super Bowl 50, and since then he has remained fairly quiet.
Manning the teacher?
There has been speculation for a while about what Manning will do when his NFL days are behind him, and his latest move shows that they are in fact a long way from being over.

Manning has been visiting one of his former offensive co-ordinators and the new head coach of the Miami Dolphins, Adam Gase.
During his visit with Gase however, Manning had a sit down chat with the Dolphins starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Manning and Tannehill reportedly went through how best to operate as a quarterback in Gase's offense and Tannehill has already explained how beneficial it was for him.
"A guy that had his career, the living legend he is, coming off a Super Bowl winning season -- it was really cool just to be able to sit and pick his brain about things he's done in this offense and football things in general" - Ryan Tannehill on his meeting with Peyton Manning
The fact that Manning was willing to voluntarily help to coach the Dolphins quarterback shows a lot about how much respect he has for Gase.
If Tannehill is able to pick up some of the pre- snap skills that Manning showcased, he could instantly change the effectiveness of the Dolphins offense.
In the meantime, is there a reason for the Denver Broncos fans to feel betrayed by Manning's choice to help the Dolphins?
Turned his back?
The Broncos made a splash in the draft when they traded with the Seattle Seahawks to acquire the 26th overall pick and draft Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch.
Surely the Broncos would prefer to see Manning helping their new rookie quarterback learn Gary Kubiak's offense rather than helping Tannehill.
The starting quarterback in Denver will be an interesting race between Lynch and Mark Sanchez that looks set to draw media attention all through the off-season.
