The Manningcast has become a staple for NFL stories, and Monday’s installment was no different.
During a guest interview with Bill Simmons and brother Eli Manning on ESPN’s alternative “Monday Night Football” show, Peyton Manning related to Bill Belichick’s apparent scheme to bring in then-girlfriend Pamela Anderson. told the story of the Pro Bowl. Annual NFL Showcase in Hawaii.
“Another time he picked David Binn, he was dating Pamela Anderson, and Bill thought the players wanted to see Pamela at the pool in Hawaii — she didn’t come, but that’s a great Belichick story,” Peyton said.
In a video found by NFL reporter Dov Kleiman, Binn, a 2006 Pro Bowl selection, recounted some of his stories during an appearance on the “Pro Football Doc Podcast.”
“The first practice, it’s like nothing, you just like to stretch, mess around a bit and walk around the field. I’m getting off and I pass Bill and he looks at me and he’s like, “Hey, where’s your girlfriend?” I said, “Oh, Pam? He didn’t come out.” He said: “Remind me why I invited you here?” said Binn.
Binn, who reportedly dated the “Baywatch” star in 2007 and 2008, recalled Belichick giving him “that dead look” at his response without Anderson.
“I thought he was joking, but he didn’t smile, and then I was like, ‘Wait, is he serious?’ I said,” Binn said. “I just went, I just couldn’t figure it out.”
Asked on the podcast if he said anything to Belichick, Binn said: “I think I just laughed and I said, ‘Wait, he really wanted me to bring Pam.’ S–t, should I call him now?
Binn played for the Chargers from 1994 to 2010. He also had a brief stint with the Broncos in early 2012.
