He turns 37 on March 24.

John Fox has some bad news for the other 31 NFL teams: Peyton Manning could be even better in 2013. Fox says a year ago the Broncos were doing homework on Manning.

Manning led Denver to the AFC's best record, 13-3.||||||| The Denver coach says Thursday at the league's annual scouting combine that with another offseason to heal and to fine-tune his comfort with Denver's offense, the four-time MVP and reigning Comeback Player of the Year could have a more impressive second season in the Mile High City.

Manning said he's been "OK the past two weeks," but he's been more than that - his completion percentage was 5.8 points higher and his QB rating was 19.2 points better with the glove.
