Peyton Manning has a pretty important football game this weekend in Foxboro against the Patriots. That apparently won't stop him from ironing out some business before taking on Tom Brady and Co. on Sunday.
Chris Vernon, who hosts an ESPN Radio show in Memphis, tweeted on Thursday morning that the Denver Broncos quarterback has agreed to become a part-owner of the Memphis Grizzlies.

Manning isn't the first celebrity to reportedly become part of the Grizzlies' ownership group. Justin Timberlake has already reportedly signed on for a "meaningful stake" in the Grizz.
Vernon also reported that former NBA guard Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway is also part of the local ownership group.
