Peyton and Eli Manning listened intently to Duke coach David Cutcliffe's instructions as the NFL quarterbacks worked up a sweat, briskly throwing a mix of deep and short passes at the Blue Devils' indoor practice field.

The Mannings trust what their college mentor has to say.

That's why when they needed somewhere tune up their games before voluntary NFL workouts begin next week, they reunited with the coach they've known for roughly two decades.

Eli Manning said Thursday, "that's why we came back here — we come to get coached."

The Mannings brought some of their NFL teammates to Duke this week to fine-tune a few things and receive some guidance from their mentor. Among the guests were new Denver receiver Wes Welker and New York Giants wideout Victor Cruz.
