This Sunday night Peyton Manning will take the field at a Colts home game wearing the opposing team's jersey. Back in 2010, Colts fans—and NFL fans in general—would've scoffed at the idea of Peyton ever leaving Indianopolis. A lot happens over the course of a season though. After a career-threatening neck injury that caused him to miss the entire 2011 season, the Colts released the four-time MVP and less than two weeks later he signed a five-year/$96 million contract with the Denver Broncos.

From LeBron James returning to Cleveland to Brett Favre coming back to Lambeau Field as a Viking, a Recent History of Dramatic Sports Homecomings.
