The first training camp practice of the Denver Broncos in 2012 went off without a hitch, and in front of a record crowd.
“It was a good first day,” Peyton Manning said. “You can tell guys have been working. Guys have continued their training since OTA’s.”
It was a particularly good first day for Manning. The Broncos’ new starting signal caller looked and sounded sharp on the field, and he had the ringing support of the 4,372 fans in attendance.

Manning didn’t display exceptional arm strength by any means, but was crisp with his throws and accurate in his timing. The crowd got excited, and for good reason.
