Broncos OTA 2012: Peyton Manning Completes First Voluntary Workout

The Denver Broncos momentarily became the epicenter of the sports world this offseason when the team signed future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning in free agency and traded fan favorite Tim Tebow to the New York Jets. The Broncos opened up voluntary OTA workouts on Monday and Manning got to test his arm strength -- likely the biggest concern facing the quarterback as he enters the 2012 season.

Here's what Manning had to say about the state of his throwing power:

"It's hard to say. I try to get better every day. That's my goal. I really need to use this time. I do think there's a difference when you are on the field, in helmets, going up against the defense. Up until now we haven't been able to go against a defense, so this will be great work for me. This was one step, and there are different phases; training camp will be your next phase, putting on shoulder pads, then preseason and regular season. I'm just taking it one day at a time, but I was excited for this day to get here."
