Talk about short and sweet. Number 93 for the Denver Broncos was represented by a mere five players in the history of the franchise. Four Defensive Linemen and a Linebacker. Sorry to disappoint everyone, but this is a "No-Brainer." That's okay though, because you're going to be tending the Barbecue anyway and won't have that much time to spare. While I'm at it, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Independence Day and a special Thank You to all the people who have served our country in the past and and are doing so presently. Here are the 5 candidates in line for the Greatest Bronco to wear #93.
Nic Clemons went Undrafted out of Georgia. He signed with the Washington Redskins in 2003. He spent the 2003 and 2004 seasons on their Practice Squad and in 2005, he played 8 games with 2 Tackles. He left Washington in 2006, resurfacing with the Atlanta Falcons in 2007. Clemons was waived before playing a snap in Atlanta and joined the Broncos in 2008. He played 10 games, making 13 Tackles and one pass deflection. His next stop was the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League in 2010. Nic is currently a Free Agent.
Pryce was one of the most ferocious members of the Broncos Defense during the championship years. As a Bronco, he started 114 of 121 games, making 317 Tackles, 64 Sacks, 2 interceptions, 9 pass deflections, 6 Forced Fumbles, 4 Fumble recoveries--one for a 28-yard touchdown and one Safety.
