Broncos 31, Steelers 19 DENVER - Peyton Manning made a successful NFL return from a year's sabbatical to lead Denver past Pittsburgh. The four-time MVP coming off four neck surgeries completed 19 of 26 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns. He got a big assist from another free agent, cornerback Tracy Porter, whose 43-yard interception return of Ben Roethlisberger's pass with two minutes left sealed the win. Manning, jettisoned by the Colts in March after missing all of last season with a nerve injury that weakened his throwing arm, hit Demaryius Thomas with a 71-yard touchdown toss for his first score as a Bronco.

"They're going to show me the door sooner rather than later. " Colston, 31, had been the owner of a minor league arena football team that played in Harrisburg the last 3 years.

One year later, they'll arrive for this week's event without a big decision looming but with turbulent offseason activity behind them. Eagles coach Chip Kelly will hold a one-hour roundtable interview on Wednesday morning to further discuss the team's March makeover. Owner Jeffrey Lurie is also expected to speak publicly for the first time since he made the decision to rearrange the front-office responsibilities.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Adam Carriker, the 13th player selected in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft, spent yesterday morning tiptoeing around cones and jousting with padded dummies, at the prodding of a whistle. Carriker, who turns 31 in May, has earned more than $16 million in guarantees, playing 4-3 defensive tackle and 3-4 defensive end for the Rams and the Redskins. He hasn't played since suffering a serious knee injury early in the 2012 season with Washington; Carriker's right knee since has undergone three surgeries.

Most of the 68,000-plus fans who cram into Lincoln Financial Field on a given Sunday during the NFL season are too young to have any recollection of Chuck Bednarik's decorated playing career. They know, however, who he is, what he did, and what he meant to the Eagles. Is that not the ultimate sign of greatness? How many living athletes in this or any other city will be able to say that more than 50 years after their careers ended they were still remembered and revered? Here's a hint: You can cut off some fingers and still count the ones in Philadelphia.

THE ANNOUNCEMENT by San Francisco 49ers linebacker Chris Borland earlier this week that he is retiring after just one season because he's worried about the effect football could have on his long-term health has once again shone the spotlight on player-safety in the NFL. But the league seems reasonably pleased with the progress it has made in recent years in making a naturally violent game much safer than it once was. During a conference call...

THE TOP PICK in the NFL always walks to the podium, gets handed the hat of the team that selected him, and greets commissioner Roger Goodell. Not this year. According to Sports Illustrated's Peter King, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will not attend the draft, which will be held in Chicago from April 30-May 2. Apparently, Winston wants to stay home and watch the draft on TV with his family.

INDIANAPOLIS - Eric Kendricks has a tiny scar on his left cheek. He can't specifically remember the flying object that caused the gash that left the scar. But he definitely knows who was responsible. His older brother Mychal. "I think it was a rock," he said. "It definitely was something that was thrown. " The Kendricks brothers were born 17 months apart and spent a good portion of their childhood and adolescence doing what brothers close in age do - fighting and competing and destroying pretty much everything in their path.
