The Broncos have elected their team captains for the 2010 season. They have a whopping seven of them, which equates to more than 15 percent of the game-day roster.
The captains are cornerback Champ Bailey, safety Brian Dawkins, tight end Daniel Graham, offensive lineman Chris Kuper, quarterback Kyle Orton, linebacker D.J. Wiliams, and linebacker Wesley Woodyard.
In future years, we predict that the number of captains in Denver will expand from seven to 12. And that the term “captains” will be replaced with “apostles.”
