5. Champ Bailey- Cornerback:
Champ Bailey is perhaps the most dominant cornerback in NFL history. Lining up across from the likes of greats including the likes of Jerry Rice, Randy Moss, Chris Carter and many more, Bailey has set the standard of consistency at arguably the most difficult position in football. Making an interception on his first play as a Bronco, Champ has earned 10 pro-bowl appearances throughout his still ongoing career which is the highest amount by any cornerback in NFL history. He currently has 48 interceptions and will look to add to that mark in the 2012-2013 NFL season.
4. Rod Smith- Wide Receiver:
Undoubtedly the greatest wide receiver in Broncos history, Rod Smith comes in at #4 on our top 5 list. He is Denver’s all time leader in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns and is the only undrafted player to date to rack up over 10,000 receiving yards in a career. Playing his entire 14 year career with Denver, Smith won two super bowl championships and participated in 3 pro bowls.
3. Shannon Sharpe- Tight End:
Quite possibly one of the most devastating offensive players the National Football League has ever had the pleasure of watching, Shannon Sharpe is one of the NFL’s all time great tight ends and a member of the football Hall of Fame (2011). Noted as one of the league’s biggest trash talkers, Sharpe was invited to 8 pro bowls and won 3 Super Bowl titles in his career, two of which came with Denver and the other later with Baltimore. He is currently a football analyst for CBS and stays active in football. He has the second most receiving yards by a tight end all time.
2. Terrell Davis- Running Back:
One of a plethora of consistent running backs having played in the mile high city, Terrell Davis was without a doubt the best of the bunch. He is a member of the NFL all decade team for the 1990’s and is one of only 5 running backs in NFL history to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a single season. A two-time Super Bowl champion whose bright career was ended to early due to injury is one of the NFL’s all time elite running backs.
1. John Elway- Quarterback:
“This one’s for John”, a phrase that resonates in all football fans ears when they think about the Denver Broncos franchise. After previously failing on 3 attempts in football’s biggest game, Elway ended his storied career in perhaps the most poetic fashion imaginable; with the Vince Lombardi trophy in hand. Elway was the 1987 NFL MVP, two time Super Bowl champion, Super Bowl XXXIII MVP and a member of the Hall of Fame class of 2004. As well he is currently vice president of football operations for the very same team he played for his entire football career. He is a legend in the city of Denver and recently added to that with the free agent signing of quarterback Peyton Manning.
