The Denver Broncos made, what could be, the biggest splash in NFL free agency this year by signing Peyton Manning. But up to this point fans have not been able to see Manning in action wearing the blue and orange.

That all changed this morning as the Broncos started their  Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and according to DenverBroncos.com, Manning was nothing short of impressive.

It was the first time he's thrown against a defense all off-season, and the first time he's been in a uniform in an organized practice in about a year-and-a-half.

Everyone from head coach John Fox to all-pro defensive back said Manning looked great and they were excited of the great things to come this season. A fan's perspective posted on Yahoo also had glowing reviews of Manning's performance, but she is still worried about the risk of Manning getting hurt once the pads start popping.

Last year it was 'Tebow-Mania', this year is it 'Manning-Mania'?
