Under the guidance of Executive Vice President John Elway, and with a return to a more traditional, Hall of Fame type player, the quarterback situation in Denver seems to have come full circle.
There have been several anticipated reactions to the move. One has been the excitement of Manning's new teammates—ecstatic Broncos eager to take the field with No. 18.
Additionally, Denver has become a coveted landing spot for unsigned free agents who wish to add their names to the Broncos roster and play alongside one of the greatest players ever to don a uniform. The Broncos quickly signed a wide receiver, two tight ends, a cornerback and a backup quarterback in the days immediately following Manning's decision to come to Denver.
The hope is not only that Manning will lead Denver to the Super Bowl and reclaim the Lombardi Trophy, but also that he will elevate the play of everyone around him, as he has done in Indianapolis throughout the years.
The following slides present a list of players who have a very real shot to become Pro Bowlers now that Peyton Manning is the quarterback of the Denver Broncos.
