Denver Broncos receiver Eric Decker says Peyton Manning's arm strength is good enough for him to start an NFL game right now.

Decker said on ESPN Radio's "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" that there is "no question" Manning's arm strength is sufficient enough for him to play in an NFL game.

"The guy's still throwing the ball a long time, throwing it great, hitting you in the right spot," Decker told Cowherd. "He's such a perfectionist. If he hits you in the belly button, he gets mad at himself for not hitting you in the chest. It's unbelievable to be around a guy who has those standards for himself."
