For a ceremony that included passing out jewelry, the Broncos were fairly understated about it.
According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Broncos were presented with their AFC Championship rings Monday. Former Broncos linebacker Tom Jackson and quarterback Peyton Manning talked to the team during the meeting, to emphasize that there was another step to the journey.
Asked if he planned on wearing the ring, Manning didn’t hesitate.
“Probably not,” he replied.
“We talked about the things that were positive about it and we talked about how we still want to go a step further,” Manning said. “We had a good healthy meeting and everybody’s on the same page. We did a lot of good things last year and we need to build on those things. You just don’t go out and go a step further because you went that far last year. It’s why did we get that far last year? It’s because we put a lot of hard work in and we had a great offseason and a great training camp.
“We’re off to a start that way as well but we have to go out and do it again and then try to find a way to finish it.”
If they can, they’ll have rings they might actually want to wear.
