Broncos WR Eric Decker: 'No Question' QB Peyton Manning's Arm Strong Enough

Tuesday April 10th, 2012

Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker says he has been working out with newly-signed quarterback Peyton Manning for about three weeks now, and there is "no question" that Manning's arm is strong enough for the NFL, according to

Manning missed the entire 2011 season with a neck injury and was eventually released by the Indianapolis Colts, the franchise that drafted him first overall in 1998.

"The guy's still throwing the ball a long time, throwing it great, hitting you in the right spot," Decker said on "The Herd" with Colin Cowherd on ESPN Radio. "He's such a perfectionist. If he hits you in the belly button, he gets mad at himself for not hitting you in the chest. It's unbelievable to be around a guy who has those standards for himself."
