Peyton Manning is throwing to Wes Welker this week for the first time as teammates, and the quarterback told ESPN Senior NFL Insider Chris Mortensen on Wednesday that he already is making a connection with the star receiver.

Peyton and Eli Manning are working out this week at Duke University with Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe, who was Peyton's offensive coordinator at Tennessee and Eli's coach at Ole Miss. Cutcliffe also worked with Peyton when he was rehabbing last year after his release by the Indianapolis Colts before he signed with the Denver Broncos.

Each quarterback brought three receivers: Peyton Manning has Broncos teammates Eric Decker, Demaryius Thomas and Welker; Eli brought Giants teammates Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz and Louis Murphy.

Peyton Manning has played with Welker in Pro Bowls, but this is the first time he's thrown to the receiver since he left the New England Patriots to sign with Denver this offseason.

"There's certain guys you just feel like you have timing with right away," Manning said. "He's a guy that has a great feel for how to get open, and understands route concepts and, of course, he played in such a sophisticated offense there in New England, so he's a smart player. You can see why he's been such a productive player. He's intense. He loves to work."

Manning said the work ethic of Welker and Thomas is an inspiration for him.

It's kind of inspiring for an old player like me to be around guys that love to work. It makes me proud to play quarterback," he said.

The Mannings are using the time with Cutcliffe to work on fundamentals and mechanics.

"I told Cutcliffe to coach us like we were both freshman at Tennessee or Ole Miss. It's been great work, great timing with the receivers this early in the offseason," Peyton Manning said.

Cruz is a restricted free agent and Eli Manning said he hopes his favorite target can agree to a contract soon with the Giants.

"I know he wants everything to get finished and be with the Giants and get back to work. It's great to get him for a few days," Manning said of working with Cruz this week.

Voluntary workouts are scheduled to begin for both the Broncos and Giants next week.

What a difference a year makes. This time last year Peyton resembled a malnourished emaciated famine victim.

I'm confused...the pictures you posted ARE the pictures from last year. Are there new pictures?

Manning isn't horrible in the playoffs it's just that in the playoffs you play better defenses lol. But i will admit Broncos need a stud to emerge at the RB spot for us to really go to that level we had when we won Superbowls. If we have a more explosive ground game, a more consistent short yardage game we would be unstoppable. Sometimes we get that but the RBS dont seem to be able to do it all yr into the playoffs.

TD was a very special back but also we had a great blocking team. TD was over 100 yards before half-time in quite a few games. It was indeed a dominant run team. I'm sure Elway remembers that. He remembers how good he was but then how it wasn't quite good enough on it's own to win it all. There had to be that great run game. I fully expect the Broncos to select 2 RB's in this draft and I imagine one of them will be a top 3 pick.

LOL...yeah, whatever dude...It's difficult to win a SB period, regardless of who you have.

Peyton has played in 2 SB's....Welker has played in 3....man, you're one stupid muther****er.

It makes you think Zona that its smarter to keep building the oline rather then worrying about say for instance middle linebacker.

If we drafted a starting center or another guard like Warford or Fluker we could have a dominant line at some point. A line that just pushes people around and protects Manning. We do that and Manning can play until he's 40 maybe. Also though our secondary is close to being really good IMO. Another CB like Trufant could make us very tough to pass on and let us match up great with TE. We could let safetys and linebackers double TE and let 2 CB play man to man outside.

Just seems IMO that oline is the area this draft presents a bunch of good physical players.

I hear ya, they should cut that Manning guy for letting that Baltimore receiver get behind him on that pass from flacco.

Horrible.

If you consider Manning threw 3 TD passes against the Ravens... And the first interception was a pass interference missed by the officials + a tipped ball... I'd say Manning had a good game in bad weather. When he made the last mistake, it was during the second OT. The Broncos had plenty of opportunities to win that game within 4 quarters and Manning was not the reason why they did not get the job done. Tom Brady against the Ravens in the AFC Championship: 1 TD, 2 INT.

Denver ran 1060 plays last year. How many more plays do you guys think we run with Welker and Louis Vasquez?

Alot of those 3rd and 1s or 3rd and 5s SHOULDN'T go to Hester now. We saw alot of 1st and 10 then 2nd and 1 3rd and 1 4th and 1.

They plan on us being in three wide 80% this year. We just ned a young power back to take us to another level.

I'd agree with this and go so far as to say if Lacy is on the board at 28 we'll grab him and if he's not we'll be taking the best RB available in the 2nd round (which would be my preference anyhow).

I think there is some great value in rounds 2 and 3 especially at RB. I'd be a little surprised if any RB besides Lacy was taken in 1.

Check out the vid on the OP. it looks like PM has a little bit more zip on his throw than he did last year, and all throws was a tight spiral. He said he let his arm rest this offseason compared to last year when he was throwing in January.
