Darrell Jackson comes to Denver this season after playing seven years in Seattle, and one year in San Francisco. He went to a Super Bowl with Seattle in 2005 losing to Pittsburgh. He reunites with former Seattle teammate, Niko Koutouvides, in Broncos Country to try to get to another Super Bowl together.
Why did you choose to play for the Broncos?
DJ: They’re a playoff team year in and year out. Coach Shanahan and the organization are well respected, and there is a great fan base here.
What are your thoughts on Jay Cutler?
DJ: All positive. He thinks outside the box and he’s a born leader. That’s what you need in a quarterback.
Talk about the competition at the wide receiver spot.
DJ: The more the merrier. When you have guys competing against each other at a high level, everyone is only going to get better. We’re a close knit group and push each other day in and day out.
How is it going up against Champ (Bailey) everyday?
DJ: Always very competitive. Some days he wins. Some days I win. He’s a great player, you know?
Will you bring the Mile High Salute back to Denver when you score?
DJ: That’s the Terrell Davis thing, right? Yeah, I’ll bring it back.
Was Travis Henry a distraction to the team?
DJ: I played high school football with Travis in Florida. He’s a good friend of mine, and I wish him the best. It is what it is.
