Peyton Manning has offered some high praise

  •  for his former Broncos teammate Von Miller.Manning was asked by the Broncos’ website to talk about some of his favorite players Dre’Mont Jones Jersey 2019 , and although he said his little brother is the player he watches the most, it’s Miller who really impresses him.“I still get to see Eli play — much more now,” Peyton said. “I’ve seen him play, I think, three games a year in person since I’ve been retired. Prior to that, I got to see him play in both Super Bowls, which was very special. But I’ve gotten to see him play more. We come to all the Broncos games, so I enjoy some of the guys that I’ve played with, like Von Miller. I still enjoy watching him compete. . . . Maybe this tells you how special he is that I’m maybe not looking at quarterbacks now; I’m watching outside linebackers and pass rushers. People ask me a lot of times, ‘Who’s the best athlete you’ve ever played with?’ And I say, ‘Von Miller.’ Just some of the things he can do physically is special. So when you come to a Broncos game and they’re on defense, you find yourself kind of locked in, seeing this might be the game-changing sack-fumble play, or interception — some kind of game-changing play he can make. I like the way he handles his business and like the way he competes out there.”Manning played four years with Miller and watched him a lot from the sideline Cheap Dre’Mont Jones Jersey , and now he’s heading into his fourth year of retirement, still enjoying watching Miller. Paxton Lynch‘s time with the Broncos didn’t go all that well and that’s why the 2016 first-round pick is now trying to land a backup quarterback job in Seattle.Lynch got a chance to make a case for that job against his former team on Thursday night. Lynch followed Geno Smith in the preseason opener and put together a strong effort. He was 11-of-15 for 109 yards through the air and added 38 rushing yards while both throwing and running for touchdowns.During the game, social media had fun with the idea of Lynch being fueled by revenge but the quarterback said that wasn’t on his mind while he was on the field.“I know that there was some talk that it was about that, but I love those guys,” Lynch said, via the team’s website. “I have a lot of love for a lot of guys on that team, they mean a lot to me. I respect them and love them, they’re close friends to me, so it had nothing to do with that. It was more to me, I had a lot to prove to myself tonight, and I feel like I went out there and did that.”Smith is having a cyst removed from his knee and is going to miss a week or so, which gives Lynch a chance to build on his strong performance and improve his chances of extending his run with the Seahawks.
