ENGLEWOOD, Colorado — There was a time when Brock Osweiler wanted to seek out Aaron Rodgers to pick his brain about how he waited so patiently for his shot while serving an extended apprenticeship under Brett Favre.
Peyton Manning's protege, however, decided to figure it out for himself.
After all, mimicking one great quarterback is plenty.
Although he has more mobility than the five-time MVP, Osweiler does his best imitation of Denver's star quarterback on the few occasions he gets onto the football field.
