Steve Atwater rejoins Broncos, in multiple roles

.

One of the greatest defensive players in Broncos history has returned to the team.

Safety Steve Atwater will become both an insider for the team-owned website and the fan development manager, via Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post.

Atwater, 50, spent 10 years with the team, winning a pair of Super Bowls and making it to the Pro Bowl eight teams. He was one of 15 finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame earlier this year.

He also was responsible for one of the most memorable hits in league history, flattening monstrous Chiefs running back Christian Okoye.

  1. Back when Atwater was a player, my wife worked in a cancer center. One of the patients was a young boy who was pretty much doomed to die. In a Make-A-Wish type moment somebody asked him if there was anybody he’d like to meet, to which he said Steve Atwater.

    A couple days later Atwater showed up with several other Broncos and they spent the bulk of the afternoon with the youngster. This kind of thing rarely gets reported but many of these athletes, even some of the ones who have problems of their own, seem to find time to help the community and that’s why we should lend them the benefit of the doubt once in a while.

    Steve Atwater is a fine man!

  2. Still surprised Atwater isn’t in the Hall Of Fame. this coming from a fan of the Raiders

  3. Atwater was a BEAST….. Not a Donkey fan at all but there’s no denying that he was an incredible player…..always enjoy watching great athletes play their guts out leaving it all on the field….
    Atwater brought it every game…..
    Go Pats!!!

  4. Glad he’s back in the fold! That hit was incredible! Although I think it’s tied with the hit in Super Bowl XXXII where he knocked out 2 Packers and himself for my favourite Atwater hit.

  5. Atwater, 50, spent 10 years with the team, winning a pair of Super Bowls and making it to the Pro Bowl eight teams. Judas F. Priest, please hire a Proof Reader.
