Elway likes what he sees from Manning

Denver football leader John Elway confirmed that Peyton Manning did, indeed, throw for the Broncos in Durham, N.C., on Friday in the form of a couple of tweets.

This is what Elway tweeted: We enjoyed visiting with Peyton today in N.C. He threw the ball great and looked very comfortable out there.

And: Watching him throw today was the next step in this important process for our team and Peyton. It was a productive visit and went well.

The next step? Well, the Denver brass is flying back to Denver to continue to wait for Manning to decide his future. Denver, Tennessee and San Francisco are the finalists -- for now. There is no timetable for Manning’s decision. He is expected to throw for Titans’ officials at some point.

But we do know the Broncos are satisfied with where Manning is in his recovery from his neck injury and remain in the hunt to sign him.
