What's buzzing:

Weber works as Manning's top backup

National Football Post

In every year prior to last year, being Peyton Manning's backup was one of the NFL's most leisurely jobs.

But with Manning on a new team in the Denver Broncos, and coming off a season in which he didn't play due to neck surgery, the No. 2 man on the depth chart is getting a little more attention.

Most figured the second-team quarterback in Denver would be second-round pick Brock Osweiler or veteran Caleb Hanie. But in recent off-season work, Adam Weber, who was on the Broncos' practice squad last year, was the second-string QB, says the Denver Post.

"I don't know if they have a depth chart at all," Weber said. ""But getting reps out here is good. Last year I didn't get a lot."
