On Sunday, the NFL published a video featuring two of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning's contemporaries from different realms of the sports world: retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and soon-to-be-retired Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant.

Jeter and Bryant reflected on different aspects of Manning's storied career, from his "pursuit of perfection" to his regression in recent years.

"The end, to me, is the most beautiful part of it all," Bryant said. "Because that's when you can sit back and look and appreciate every life lesson that you've had, but you take them with you."

Manning has said he may retire after Super Bowl 50, but he has not announced a decision or said whether he's made one.
