Former Broncos playing in the UFL

This is an update on some of our former Broncos mainly, but I found it very interesting that SO MANY of Shanahan's players from his last few years here are in the UFL.

Does that speak poorly of the talent level we fielded in his last few years here?

You decide, but remember, there are far more of his guys still playing and playing very well in the NFL... and to be fair, not all of these players can be labeled as "Shanahan Guys" but they were players he at least brought in here to improve the Denver Broncos at some point.
