Denver Broncos: 30 greatest players of all time
When it comes to Denver Broncos running backs, no player in the history of the Denver Broncos played the position better than Terrell Davis.
Nicknamed ‘TD’, Davis was a sixth-round pick in the 1995 NFL Draft out of Georgia. Many speculated that his best shot at making the roster was on special teams. There was even buzz that he would not make the final roster.
That all changed during the 1995 preseason. All it took was one huge special teams hit. The rest became history.
He became a superstar for the Broncos despite his short career in the NFL. Davis rushed for over 1,000 yards in each of his first four seasons in the league. His best two years came during the Broncos’ back-to-back Super Bowl victories in the 1997 and 1998 seasons.
He is also part of the 2,000-yard rushing yards club. His best performances came during the playoffs, where he ran for over 100 yards in seven of his eight playoff games.
His accolades include Super Bowl XXXII MVP, 1998 NFL MVP, and two-time Super Bowl champion. Davis’ accomplishments finally rewarded him with an enshrinement in Canton in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Davis is the best running back to do it in Denver.
