Peyton Manning shows off fun side with dorky dance at Broncos practice

  • Print

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Peyton Manning isn't all business all the time. The star quarterback showed his lighter side Monday when he did a dorky dance during the team stretch when "Rocky Top" was blared through the loudspeakers at the Denver Broncos' training camp.

While Manning was dancing to the unofficial anthem of his Tennessee Volunteers, fellow alum Britton Colquitt joined in and Wes Welker even added a hoedown.

"I love it," said defensive end Malik Jackson, another former Vol. "They need to play it every day. 'Rocky Top' is awesome. Go Vols."

Every day the Broncos begin their stretch with music blaring from the loudspeakers.

"It was his day to pick the music so it wasn't a surprise to me what it was going to be," linebacker Von Miller said. "It was Peyton's day, so it was all good."

Defensive end Mitch Unrein said the song selection brought back sweet memories for him.

"I like that song because it reminds me of when Wyoming went out to Tennessee and we beat them, 13-7, believe it or not," Unrein said. "I was giving Malik grief about it. Yeah, they played that song in our locker room for a week straight before we went out there so it was just stuck in my head.

"But yeah, Peyton had a nice dance out there. I was trying to mimic him a little bit but I just couldn't do a good job doing that."
