Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning played a majority of his career with the Indianapolis Colts, but it appears he is spending more time around the Denver Broncos organization following the end of his playing days.

Manning was seen at Broncos training camp on Monday, where he embraced newly acquired quarterback Russell Wilson along with long-time backup quarterback Josh Johnson.

Manning, who is a Denver native, was seen watching the Broncos practice alongside his son Marshall Manning.

While Manning experienced a majority of his accolades in Indianapolis during his playing career, his sendoff with the Denver Broncos was perfect, winning the Super Bowl in 2016 and ending his career on top.

His relationship with the Colts did have a rocky ending, and it appears that Manning is clearly favoring the Broncos organization

That doesn’t seem to be an issue for the Broncos faithful, who are happy to see him at the practice and participating in team activities.

Broncos first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett discussed Manning’s appearance at practice, saying that he “absolutely loves” when he is around.

“I saw that he was out there, I got to talk to him for a little bit. I absolutely love him being around. If that doesn’t get you fired up to practice and just be a part of this game, then I don’t know what does. Just seeing him out there is pretty amazing.”

His presence is not all that surprising within the Broncos organization considering it was rumored that he would have an involvement with the new ownership group that bought the Broncos back in June.

It’s unclear if a defined role has been made for him just yet in the organization, or if this is just him showing support for the team at this point, but that could likely be in the works at some point down the road for Manning.
