Eric Decker's stock is rising in the eyes of the Denver Broncos and quarterback Peyton Manning.

The third-year receiver who struggled at times catching Tim Tebow's erratic throws last season has been hauling in Manning's precise passes for a month now.

The sessions at local high school football fields and, starting this week, at team headquarters, have helped Manning start to regain his arm strength and rediscover his form after a series of neck operations sidelined him all of last season and led to his departure from Indianapolis after 14 years.

They're also helping him find a rhythm with Decker, whom he spoke highly of this week.
