Folks have been wondering what Peyton Manning will do with his post-football career for some time now… Jumping out of planes was probably not on top of a lot of lists. Not that it will be an everyday thing, but the two-time Super Bowl quarterback did take to the skies recently to help raise money for the Navy SEAL Foundation, which supports active members, veterans, and the families of America’s Naval Special Warfare Development Group.

Manning shared a post on Instagram of his jump with the Patriot Parachute Team. “I’m honored to be here in support of the Navy Seals Foundation,” the NFL Hall of Famer says in the video. “It’s my first time. I’m a little nervous. I feel like I’m in — let me say, I know I’m with some real pros in this.”

Despite being new to skydiving, ‘The Sheriff’ put his faith in the Patriot Parachute Team and he’s clearly enjoying the descent in the video. Once he’s back on the ground, you can hear him repeating, “It was incredible. Absolutely incredible.”
