It's the Broncos. they only make one kind of player decision: shitty ones. This is the same team that used a first round pick on Tebow, after all.
Most likely they knew that Peyton couldn't throw, but they knew he would drum up fan enthusiasm and sell a bunch of tickets. Like when the Cardinals spent a bunch of money on a washed up Emmitt Smith so they could sell a few tickets to all the Cowboys fans in Pheonix.
