PEBBLE BEACH -- Two days after being hammered by the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning became a late entry Tuesday in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Manning, who carries a 7-handicap, will be the amateur partner of pro Scott Langley. He joins three other current NFL quarterbacks entered in the event -- New England's Tom Brady, Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers and Kansas City's Alex Smith.

The tournament officially begins Thursday on three Monterey Peninsula courses with practice rounds scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday.
