It has been over a year since QB Peyton Manning was last on a football field but after he took the field yesterday, it looks to his new teammates that he hasn’t skipped a beat. The story surrounding Manning has been well documented with the future Hall of Fame signal caller undergoing three neck surgeries over the past several months. The biggest question surrounding Manning has been whether or not he would be able to regain his arm strength. That and other questions were answered on Monday.
The media was allowed in to watch the Broncos first workout and get their first live look at Manning throwing the football. Reports suggest he was sharp and crisp with his passes. Manning showed no effects or lingering issues surrounding his battery of neck surgeries and did not show any arm weakness as well.
Denver Broncos CB Champ Bailey was impressed, telling reporters, “Man, it feels good to know he’s going to be on my side because what I saw today, he’s going to give us some good work.”
Manning told reporters after the workout that he felt good. “It felt good to be out there. I haven’t really been out there like this for a year and a half. It’s a day I’ve been waiting on for a long time,” said Manning.
