Most football fans expected center Jeff Saturday to follow Peyton Manning to Denver – including Manning - which is why Saturday made a call to his former quarterback after signing his two-year deal with the Green Bay Packers.According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Saturday explained to Manning that the Packers were a better fit for him than the Broncos. "Peyton is a close friend and I loved playing with him," Saturday told the newspaper. "I loved the time we spent together. It was the most difficult call I've ever made. I told him before anyone else that I was going to Green Bay."I told him I don't think the Broncos wanted me as much as he did. They've got things going on that they're happy with and are moving forward with and I didn't think it was an exact fit. I always felt like in Green Bay I was their very first choice."Saturday’s two-year deal is reportedly worth $7.75 million, including $4 million in 2012. The 36 year old played 13 NFL seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.
