His paycheck may look like Peyton Manning's tip money. Still, there's at least one area where Manning and his newest Broncos teammate, defensive back Quentin Jammer, aren't nearly so far apart.

"I want to win a championship," Jammer said Thursday, his first day practicing with the Broncos. "I think Denver gives me that opportunity.'

After spending his first 11 seasons without a title in San Diego, Jammer signed a one-year deal worth around the veteran minimum to join Manning, Champ Bailey and the Broncos, who are assembling veteran pieces to make a run at the Super Bowl.

The Broncos plan to use Jammer at safety, where he'll add depth for nickel situations and could possibly challenge for a starting job.
