Peyton Manning seen throwing at Denver-area high school

Peyton Manning isn't wasting any time developing rapport with his new Denver Broncos teammates.

Manning was spotted Monday morning working out at a suburban Denver high school with Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker, tight end Julius Thomas and center J.D. Walton. Decker, who had 44 receptions for 612 yards with eight touchdowns last season, said he was impressed by his new quarterback.

"He looked real good, though he probably won't admit that he's feeling good or feeling back to the way he wants to be," Decker told The Denver Post.

Decker said the session essentially was an opportunity for Manning and his teammates to begin the process of establishing chemistry.

"Just some drill work, talking through stuff, so he gets familiar with the verbage and the calls," Decker said. "The biggest thing is he wanted to get a feel for us, and a feel for being under center."

According to the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, Manning is allowed to organize workouts on his own until April 16, but the workouts cannot take place at the Broncos' team facility. Manning told The Post last week that he needed to brush up on what he is and is not permitted to do during the offseason.
