Including the current holder of the jersey, eight players have worn #69 in Denver Broncos history. Six Offensive Linemen and two Defensive Linemen. This will be short and sweet so let's take a look at the list.
Tony Colorito was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the 5th round (134th overall) of the 1986 NFL Draft. He played 15 games for the Broncos in 1986 and recovered 2 Fumbles.
David Jones was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the 8th round (214th overall) of the 1984 NFL Draft. He played 2 seasons with the Lions before splitting 1987 between the Washington Redskins and the Broncos. Jones started 1 of 3 games in Denver and recovered one Fumble.
Michael Moore was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the 4th round (129th overall) in 2000. He started 1 of 5 games in Washington and was waived during Training Camp in 2001. The Broncos signed him on Christamas Eve and when the season ended, re-signed him for the 2002 season. Moore was signed and released twice more, then released for the final time on December 11, 2002. Michael saw the same scenario in Atlanta with the Falcons from 2003-05 and then again in 2006 with the Green Bay Packers. There are no game records for Moore so I can only conclude that he was on the Inactive Game Day Roster each time he signed with the Broncos. He isn't listed as a Practice Squad player in the Broncos Media Guide either.
Not a whole lot to get excited about there I know. That is what makes this an easy choice. The Greatest Bronco to wear #69 is...
- 2-Time Pro Bowl selection (1991, 1998)
- Washington Redskins Super Bowl XXVI Champions (1992)
- Denver Broncos Super Bowl XXXII Champions (1998, 1999)
- Denver Broncos 50th Anniversary Team (2009)
- University of Idaho Vandals Hall of Fame (2008)
- Alaska Sports Hall of Fame (2008)
