Danny Trevathan to take over the leadership role?:
Third year linebacker Danny Trevathan says he's ready to step up and be a leader for the Broncos.
"My job last year was just to make plays," he said Wednesday. "To be a leader, you have to set an example. You have to make your name known. I don’t think I wanted to come here and be a leader, I had to earn that. Last year was a breaking-out season for me, and this year is going to be another breakout season for me. It’s my job to help lead as much as I can. Just bring my characteristics to this team, my attitude to this team as much as I can."
Trevathan says he's going to use the lessons he learned from former teammate Wesley Woodyard on how to be a good leader.
"It’s my job as a linebacker to be a leader," he said. "I take pride in being a leader and taking on the challenge of getting these guys ready. I kind of had to wait and sit back and wait my turn. It’s been an honor just to play alongside of guys who taught me how to be a leader. Now it’s time for me to showcase how great of a leader I can be."
I like seeing this type of maturity coming from our young playmakers.
