Adam Weber, the former Gophers quarterback, will benefit a great deal from all the quarterback changes going on with his current team, the Denver Broncos.

The Broncos signed superstar quarterback  Peyton Manning, 35, today.

Weber, who was promoted from the practice squad late last season, has attended Manning's camps. Now he has a chance to be the backup to the future Hall of Famer.

Denver backup quarterback Brady Quinn has signed with Kansas City, and Tim Tebow is likely to be traded, so Weber, at this point, looks to be No. 2 in Denver.

Eric Decker, Weber's top target with the Gophers, is one of Denver's top receivers.
