Former Broncos QB Peyton Manning visited with the team during organised team activities on Thursday, at a crucial time in the group’s preparation for the new season.

Manning’s visit comes a day after his former team-mate DeMarcus Ware returned to Dove Valley in his new role as a pass rush consultant working with the defensive linemen and linebackers.

Shelby Harris, who was not part of the Broncos’ Super Bowl-winning roster, expressed his excitement over the visits with the future first-ballot Hall of Famers.


“When DeMarcus says something, you listen,” Harris said. “Because you know he’s one of the all-time greats when it comes to getting to the quarterback.

“He has a lot of good insight and you want to pick his brain. You want to sit there and see what he thinks, and the way he thinks when it comes to rushing the passer, so yeah, when he comes in and he says something, you want to listen.”

Manning rounded off his visit with an uplifting post-practice speech:

Just like old times.
