Denver Broncos wide receiver Andre Caldwell has been very impressed with how quarterback Peyton Manning has been “leading everything” so far during OTA’s.
“He’s literally leading everything. He’s setting us up, putting us in the right positions. He’s not running the drills — definitely he and [Eric] Decker go hand-in-hand with that — but he’s pretty much the leader in everything else.”
Like many others that have been watching Manning, Caldwell has been very impressed about what he’s seen so far.
“He looks great,” Caldwell said. “He looks ready to go. I’d go to war with him any day right now, so he looks fine and healthy to me.”
Caldwell, who played with Andy Dalton and the Bengals last season, mentioned the difference between playing with a quarterback who’s learning the offense and one that already knows what he’s doing.
“It’s a big difference,” Caldwell said. “The quarterback had to get adjusted to us [last year], but instead, Peyton is leading us. He’s showing us all the drills we need to do. He’s ahead of everybody, and he’s just our leader. Being with a rookie last year, our leader was on the O-line. This year it’s the quarterback. He’s leading everything that he does.”
