Peyton Manning is still getting acclimated to his new surroundings, including the group of wide receivers he will be working with in 2012. Demaryius Thomas in particular has impressed Manning with the way he has practiced over the last couple of days.
"He's a guy we're going to feature," Manning said of Thomas. "His size and strength and speed just allow you to do certain things with him that other players just can't do. I thought Demaryius, these past two days, has made some good plays, done some good things with the ball after the catch, which is what we're going to need."
Thomas caught 32 passes for 551 yards and four touchdowns in 2011.
