Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning took advantage of the time to be at the facility and took some of his receivers to a field next to the weight room to continue to work with one another.
“You can’t show up in September and expect to complete passes,” Manning said.
“I think a lot of players around the NFL will tell you the lockout threw a lot of players off their routine and what they’re used to,” he added. “So, I (like) the fact that everybody’s allowed to be in the facility now working out under one roof, we can throw on the field now, right next to the weight room now as opposed to going to a high school. That was what you had to do, but it’s nice to be able to do everything here and have some time with the coaches as well.”
After catching passes from Manning, Eric Decker didn’t seem to think there was anything wrong with his arm.
“I’m not his doctor, I don’t know how to speak on his health, but catching balls from him, it looks like there’s nothing wrong to me,” Decker told The Associated Press. “He’s throwing great balls, he’s getting the work in just like we’re getting the work in, knocking the rust off. I see no issues at this point.”Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
