Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said Monday night that Carolina Panthers star Cam Newton would be the face of the NFL the next eight to 10 years.

Newton, asked about the comment Monday during Super Bowl 50 media night, did not disagree.

“Anything the Sheriff says, you can probably ink it in gold,” Newton said with a smile, referring to Manning’s nickname.

But Newton said he still has plenty of work to do on Sunday against Manning & Co. before he can think about being the face of the league. He reminded reporters that his primary goal was to win the Super Bowl.
