We managed to reach brother Peyton and his wife Abby for their thoughts on this news.


“This doesnt change anything. Eli is still my brother and is no different. He is still a great QB in the NFL and has overcome many things in his life. He hasnt let this hinder his playing ability or his personal life. He is still a great person and a great brother” said Peyton.


His wife Abby told us the following: “Its a real shock to our entire family. Eli did seem slightly off compared to most people but he is still a kind hearted guy and I love him. Alot of things might change now in his life but our family is going to be together and help him through this time. We ask you please respect our privacy and give Eli and our family space.”
