We know Peyton Manning can take three steps and throw, but can he groove?

A video from training camp Monday morning indicates the answer is yes.

Each morning, the Denver Broncos start training camp with music blaring over the loudspeakers.

Monday, Peyton Manning got to pick the song and he picked "Rocky Top" -- one of several official songs of the state of Tennessee.

And suddenly there was Manning, and punter Britton Colquitt, dancing. Both played for the University of Tennessee Volunteers.

"It was his day to pick the music so it wasn’t a surprise to me what it was going to be," Von Miller said. "It was Peyton’s day so it was all good."

Another former Volunteer, Malik Jackson, said he loved hearing it.

"They need to play it every day," Jackson said. "‘Rocky Top’ is awesome. Go Vols!"

Defensive tackle Mitch Unrein used the playing of the song to take a jab at the Tennessee players.

"I like that song because it reminds me of when Wyoming went out to Tennessee and we beat them, 13-7, believe it or not," Unrein said. "I was giving Malik [Jackson grief] about it. Yeah, they played that song in our locker room for a week straight before we went out there so it was just stuck in my head. But, yeah, Peyton had a nice dance out there. I was trying to mimic him a little bit, but I just couldn’t do a good job doing that."

And at the end of the song, Manning yelled, "That's what I'm talking about."
