John Elway sat down with former Denver Broncos John Lynch to discuss many things in a one-on-one, including signing the only player that could be considered a more influential than him, Peyton Manning.

“I was listening and trying to help him through that process…” Elway told Lynch on FOX SPORTS 1-ON-1. “One thing I told him, I said, ‘Peyton, in my opinion things are going to be fine. They’re going to work out for you. The best thing that … the thing that you’re going to have to do is make the best decision you can for where you’re going to end your career. And to me, if you make a decision right now, it’s going to be the wrong decision.’”

It sounds like this quote is from before Elway signed Manning, but we won’t know for sure without seeing it all.

The entire interview takes place on FOX SPORTS 1 at 6 p.m. MST.
