According to Nate Davis of USA Today, it was clear during the Denver Broncos’ minicamp session on Tuesday, that Peyton Manning’s velocity on his deep balls isn’t what it once was.
Manning has looked very good with his accuracy when he delivers short to intermediate throws. His doctors remain upbeat about his current condition.
“I still have a lot of work to do,” Manning said.
“I’m so glad to be back on the field practicing. … Last season being injured was new for me. I thought I had a good attitude about it and tried to handle it the best I could. Certainly, it feels good to be back out on the field.
“I continue to rehab. I have work to do and progress that I still need to make.”
I think everyone knew Manning would lose some of the zip on the ball that he once possessed, but there’s no doubt in my mind he can still play at a high level because of his football intelligence.
