Despite watching Manning pick apart his defense, new coordinator Jack Del Rio said it was nice to see his players in pads.
"I was one of the players that benefited from being in pads throughout my career. A lot of times I was beaten out in the spring and I'd take my job back in the fall when we put the pads on," Del Rio said. "So, you can't really settle too much until you get the pads on. This sport is played in pads."
NOTES: RT Orlando Franklin missed the last 20 minutes of the morning practice with what Fox said was a crick in his neck. ... The Broncos signed S Anthony Perkins from the University of Colorado, an indication that starting S Quinton Carter (right hamstring) might be out for a while.
