Wrapping up Denver's day

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Here are some remaining thoughts from my day at Denver’s minicamp, where Peyton Manning was the star attraction:

I thought Denver coach John Fox nicely handled the situation revolving linebacker D.J. Williams tweeting photos of the team’s playbook. Fox called it a “mishap” and said the situation was addressed. The tweeted plays really didn’t compromise the Broncos, so the team isn’t overly upset. Yet I’m sure it was made clear to Williams and the rest of the team that similar tweets will be prohibited in the future.

It will be interesting to see the Broncos’ safety situation develop in camp. Veteran Mike Adams looks like a solid player and second-year players, Quinton Carter and Rahim Moore will also be in the mix. If Carter and Moore continue to develop, it could be a good group.

Quarterback Brock Osweiler looks the part -- even though he's still a project. The 6-foot-7, second-round pick has a gun and he seems like he is willing to put in the work. I look forward to seeing him in the preseason.

Manning’s former offensive coordinator Tom Moore made it clear Tuesday he was simply visiting camp and has no plans to join the team as a consultant. Moore was on the Pittsburgh staff with Fox in 1989. Moore, 73, said he is interested in coaching again in 2013.

Running back Knowshon Moreno continues to run on his own off to the side during drills. He tore an ACL last season and should be ready for camp. The No. 12 overall pick in the 2009 draft could have an uphill battle to make the team.

Fox praised the reputation of sixth-round pick linebacker Danny Trevathan. He was a tackle machine in college at Kentucky and I could see him having an immediate role on special teams.
