7 Denver Broncos who could be next in the Ring of Fame
1. Demaryius Thomas, WR
In his nine seasons in Denver, Demaryius Thomas produced some of this team’s most electric plays of all time. An elite athlete with top-flight size and speed, he terrorized secondaries around the league for years.
A first-round draft pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, he is right up there with Rod Smith and Shannon Sharpe in the Denver Broncos record books and is 2nd in receiving yards (9055), TD’s (60), and 3rd in receptions (665).
He also holds the single-season team records for receiving yards (1619) and touchdowns (14). Thomas was perhaps the most athletically gifted and dominant wideout in team history, and he used his massive 6’3″ frame and sub-4.4 speed to blow the top off defenses and punish them over the middle.
From his 80-yard overtime touchdown to beat the Steelers with Tim Tebow, to years of monstrous production as Peyton Manning’s favorite target and finally as a steady presence for Denver’s numerous quarterbacks since, Demaryius Thomas was a defining piece of the offense for nearly a decade. He last played in 2019, and when he’s eligible in 2025, this is a no-brainer.
