INDIANAPOLIS -- Former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning is keeping busy, just not with football. 

Country music star Dierks Bentley posted a photo of Manning holding a fish, about the size of a football, in front of some beautiful scenery. 

Bentley posted the photo with the caption: "should i inform peyton manning of the mama bear and her three cubs approaching from behind? or let him enjoy his moment ?#basspro #bassproshops"

Three or four black figures can be seen in the background of the photo, but it's unclear if they're really bears, or if Bentley was messing with his friend. 

But even if they are bears, Manning shouldn't worry, as one Instagram commenter noted. Manning has already beaten the Bears once.


Unfortunately for Manning, it looks like this year's fish is smaller than last year's fish.
