    Mannings throw at Duke
    Updated: April 10, 2013, 7:21 PM ET

    Peyton Manning is throwing to Wes Welker this week for the first time as teammates, and the quarterback told ESPN Senior NFL Insider Chris Mortensen on Wednesday that he already is making a connection with the star receiver.

    Peyton and Eli Manning are working out this week at Duke University with Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe, who was Peyton's offensive coordinator at Tennessee and Eli's coach at Ole Miss. Cutcliffe also worked with Peyton when he was rehabbing last year after his release by the Indianapolis Colts before he signed with the Denver Broncos.

    Each quarterback brought three receivers: Peyton Manning has Broncos teammates Eric Decker, Demaryius Thomas and Welker; Eli brought Giants teammates Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz and Louis Murphy.

    Peyton Manning has played with Welker in Pro Bowls, but this is the first time he's thrown to the receiver since he left the New England Patriots to sign with Denver this offseason.

    "There's certain guys you just feel like you have timing with right away," Manning said. "He's a guy that has a great feel for how to get open, and understands route concepts and, of course, he played in such a sophisticated offense there in New England, so he's a smart player. You can see why he's been such a productive player. He's intense. He loves to work."

    Manning said the work ethic of Welker, Thomas and Decker is an inspiration for him.

    "It's kind of inspiring for an old player like me to be around guys that love to work. It makes me proud to play quarterback," he said.

    The Mannings are using the time with Cutcliffe to work on fundamentals and mechanics.

    "I told Cutcliffe to coach us like we were both freshman at Tennessee or Ole Miss. It's been great work, great timing with the receivers this early in the offseason," Peyton Manning said.

    Cruz is a restricted free agent and Eli Manning said he hopes his favorite target can agree to a contract soon with the Giants.

    "I know he wants everything to get finished and be with the Giants and get back to work. It's great to get him for a few days," Manning said of working with Cruz this week.

    Voluntary workouts are scheduled to begin for both the Broncos and Giants next week.

    Yeah it's pretty bad when Cruz without a contract shows up, Nicks after knee scopes, Louis murphy and yet no Randle.

    I understand bringing Murphy cuz Eli needs to start a connection with him since Murphy just became a Giant weeks ago, and the same goes for Welker with Peyton, but IMO, I think they both SHOULD have brought one more WR: Peyton should have brought Brandon Stokley, and Eli should have brought Randle.....

    Hopefully this is not a repeat of the past when certain players chose to train away from the team on their own. Shockey comes to mind. I want to say Plax was another one, but I am not 100% sure.

    This is why I love Cruz, he's not under contract and has been at the Giants facility working out and went to Duke with Eli. Any other super star wr other then maybe Fitz would never do this, he's such a class act and ALWAYS looking to get better. Cruz is a special player and guy, they have to do what they can to get him locked up long term.

    I agree.....this kid HAS to retire a Giant....grew up in Patterson, NJ, a few miles away from where the Giants played, also where his legacy started....that's too much strings to cut for him if he's planning to go somewhere else.....I think 7 mil guaranteed is good enough for him, but if he wants higher, then I can live with that cuz he's more than just the best slot WR in the NFL...the guy can do it all, but the only guy I believe that stands in Cruz's way for a big payday is none other than 88.....

    You can't guarantee 7 million lol, it would be more than half which is not normal but in an attempt to get his overall money down I'd feel comfortable offering 60% guaranteed

    Ahh Cruz , just makes u pray he stays every time he does anything until you remember there's a cap lol

    RR better not of passed this up for no reason ..if he has something personal well never know and that's fine but this is a huge opportunity though maybe he wasn't brought bc they don't want to make nicks press himself to go harder and out shine RR ? Idk egos?

    Otherwise this is all good news and this is another reason to love Eli ..never sits back and says he's good enough .

    L Murphy good move on all sides to get him with Eli so fast now maybe after preseason they may have a good feeling for each others routes , where the ball will/should go ect .. Exciting news.
