Manning rehabbing and already cramming playbook

Expectations high as Peyton Manning, Broncos get acclimated

Manning moved his rehab to Denver’s facility immediately after signing, and has done all he can—which is very limited at this point, due to the new offseason rules—to get ready for the 2012 season, his first in the NFL in colors other than the Colts’ blue and white.

“It’s great to have him there, and obviously he’s full of knowledge,” Broncos executive vice president John Elway told NFL Network. “But he’s still going through his rehab process and working hard. With the new rules, we can only do so much, but he’s working hard on rehabbing his arm. And he’s been working out, throwing with the guys, and that’s the kind of guy he is. He’s got our playbook, so he’s had his head in the playbook trying to learn, and kind of combine what he’s used and what we do.”

Just in case you didn't know, Manning is also sleeping at the Broncos' facility.  It's safe to assume he's living and breathing Broncos football during his waking hours.  During those hours in which he is trying to get some sleep, he's probably not counting sheep, but instead the number of Raiders it would take to screw in a light bulb.

As we've written before--some guys in the NFL work hard.  Then there's Peyton Manning.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.
