Peyton Manning emphasized that he is not 100 percent, but he has his Denver Broncos teammates convinced that whatever percent he is physically, that that could be plenty good enough.
"I can't emphasize enough that I still have rehab to do," Manning told USA Today. "That's still part of the process."
Despite the on-going recovery process from the neck surgery that cost him all of last season with Indianapolis, Manning has impressed his new teammates in Denver, even ones who have been around the block a few times like veteran cornerback Champ Bailey. Bailey raved about Manning's 35-yard TD toss to Demaryius Thomas in Tuesday's workout.
"Peyton anticipated where Demaryius was going to be and saw the play the whole way," Bailey said.
"When (executive vice president of football operations) John Elway got Peyton to come here, it made my year, made my career. I've never played with a guy like this."
