12:23 PM ET 04.11 | Peyton Manning and Wes Welker have begun to work out together for the first time as Denver Broncos teammates. Welker joined Manning along with Broncos receivers Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker at Duke University, where Manning rehabbed last year after undergoing neck surgery. Welker and Manning have been teammates on multiple Pro Bowl teams, but they had their first practice session together as real teammates on Wednesday. Welker signed a two-year, $12 million contract with the Broncos this offseason after spending the last six seasons with the New England Patriots. Manning said he is already making a connection with his newest receiver, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. "There's certain guys you just feel like you have timing with right away," Manning said. If Manning and Welker establish a connection like the one Welker shared with Tom Brady in New England, defenses across the NFL should fear a Denver offense that scored the second-most points in the league last season.

I keep telling myself "it's good for the sport."

And, it is. I'd rather see Wes Welker teamed up with a great quarterback. He deserves it.

I know there must be a story here somewhere but I just don't see it.
