Posted June 14, 2012 on AP on Fox
The Denver Broncos wrapped up their offseason workouts Thursday with another spirited practice marked by potent, precise passes. One thing is abundantly clear after 13 offseason practices, six of which were witnessed by the media: Peyton Manning is back. The four-time MVP has shown no ill effects of the nerve issue that caused weakness in his throwing arm last year, required four neck operations, forced him to miss the entire 2011 season and led to his release from the Indianapolis Colts. The biggest free agent in NFL history looks better every day as he gains strength and adjusts to his new team. Brandon Stokley, who played with Manning in Indianapolis, said Thursday, ''We don't think about the injury anymore, and I'm not sure he does, either.''
