Manning sharp in first Broncos' practice

Peyton Manning's first official practice with the Denver Broncos was a success, the veteran quarterback told the Denver Post.

Manning says the off-season is the time for getting timing with receivers down and fine-tuning the offense.

"It felt good to be out there. I haven't really been out there like this for a year and a half. It's a day I've been waiting on for a long time," Manning said. "I've always believed you develop your timing for the passing game in the offseason. You can't just show up in September and expect to be on the same page. Offseason workouts, it's a great time to make an impression on the coaches. Coaches are always evaluating, *

so there are a lot of benefits from this work."

It was Manning's first official work in quite some time since he missed all of last season with the Indianapolis Colts with a neck injury. The Colts released him in March, and the Broncos won out over San Francisco and Tennessee to land him.
