Quentin Jammer says he signed with the Broncos this week because he wants a Super Bowl ring.
Jammer, the defensive back who had played his entire 11-year NFL career in San Diego, said at his introductory press conference in Denver today that his move was all about winning.
“Obviously I had spent so much time in San Diego, to uproot and leave and go somewhere and uproot your family, it’s hard. It’s a difficult thing to do,” he said. “But when you’re forced to, you have decisions to make. The next decision that you have to make is you have three to four more years left in you. What are you going to do with your life? I want to win a championship. . . . Hands down, if you look across the league, what better place to go than Denver to have a chance to play for a championship?
Jammer said he doesn’t particularly care whether he plays cornerback or safety in the Broncos’ secondary, as long as he’s doing something that helps the team achieve that goal of winning the Super Bowl.
“I always considered myself a football player, not really put a label on myself as a corner or a safety,” Jammer said. “This is the game of football, and I feel like I can be plugged in anywhere on the defense and play — other than the big hosses up front. Any of the skill positions in the back end I can be plugged in and play. I wanted to come in and help this football team as much as I can. . . . I can pretty much cover anybody on the field. I’ve been doing it for 11 years. Why stop now?”
Jammer doesn’t want to stop without a ring.
