NFL's Peyton Manning released, but Scotiabank drafts his brother

The Manning brothers on The Simpsons

Here's a big fact that Bank of Nova Scotia left out of its news release today: Cooper Manning, the older brother of NFL quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning, is one of its newest employees.

Cooper, who played football in high school but had to stop because of spinal stenosis, or a narrowing of the spinal canal, is a partner at Howard Weil, the energy business Scotia has acquired. The older brother is a member of the firm's equity sales team, which is based in New Orleans.

This isn't the first time Cooper's name has been mentioned. He's been the subject of previous stories -- and more important, he co-starred in a Simpsons episode with his brothers. (Hence the picture above.)

The question now: who makes more money? The Super Bowl winning quarterbacks, or the energy sales man from the south? (Okay that's probably easy, but maybe: who has more longevity?)
