Eli Manning took a moment to say hello to Jared Lorenzen’s son, Tayden Lorenzen, during halftime of the Giants’ preseason game against the Bengals in Cincinnati.

Fort Thomas Matters, an online publication covering news around Ft. Thomas, Ky., happened to grab a photo of their interaction:

Now that’s awesome. Manning was very close to Jared from their time together in New York — he even flew in for the funeral — and now he is spending time with Jared’s son on the sideline.


The Giants’ Twitter account shared photos of Tayden Lorenzen playing QB in his #22 jersey during a halftime scrimmage between local youth teams:

    Great gesture from Eli. From everything I have seen, the whole Manning family has always been very nice and giving to kids.

    …genuine southern hospitality and caring on display, “never are bigger than when you stoop to comfort someone younger”

    dang, wish I would have gone to this one. What a class act from Manning. Hope they bring these kids back to one of the regular season games. I just don’t make the 2 hour drive down there for preseason games but would have tonight had I known his son was playing at half.

    Although I’ve always been a Cats fan Archie Manning and Dickie Lyons, Sr were my favorites growing up. Archie you’ve done well raising your sons. Classic acts all of them.
