Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning Impresses During First OTA Workout
One of the biggest questions heading into the 2012 NFL season will be how well Peyton Manning performs as one of the newest members of the Denver Broncos after missing the entire 2011 season while recovering from multiple neck surgeries. While there’s no reason to make a big deal just yet, the Broncos have to be pleased with how well the future Hall of Fame quarterback looked during his first day of organized team activities.
Manning made his first appearance to organized team activities with the Broncos on Monday and the reviews have been nothing but impressive as numerous spectators saw plenty of “zip” in his throws and claimed he looked like his old self. Considering how much money Denver is paying (five-year deal worth $96 million), this has to be a huge sign of relief for John Elway and company as many knew the risks of bringing Manning on board with such a hefty contract.
Obviously, the neck is one of the most risky injuries when it comes to football and even though Manning looked impressive on Monday–he still has a long way to go before getting back to his old level. Once he takes a few big hits during a preseason game to show there are no more complications from the neck injury–then everybody can start getting excited about Manning returning to his old dominant self on the football field.
