Madden Most Valuable Protectors Award

Former Saints quarterback Archie Manning is the patriarch of football’s first family. He is also in the inaugural class of the New Orleans Saints Ring of Honor, along with linebacker Rickey Jackson and offensive tackle Willie Roaf.

At the 20th annual Manning Passing Academy at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux this weekend, Manning got a surprise from Saints head coach Sean Payton, who was helping out at the four-day camp because his son, Connor, was a camper, Julie Boudwin of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

According to Manning Passing Academy photographer Parker Waters, Payton surprised Manning during a Sunday morning meeting with a ring from the Saints to commemorate his induction into the Saints Ring of Honor in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
