The ceremony will take place on Saturday, August 3, 2019. The three players from the team that will be in attendance were all teammates of Champ in the twilight of his career and were part of that 2013 Super Bowl team in Champ’s final season.
Miller took plenty away from Champ’s mentality towards the game and has had a similar approach in his own career.
“Champ was always Champ,” Miller said of Champ. “I guess I kind of do the same. I don’t really let anyone change me. He had the same routine for as long as I saw him. D.J. Williams used to tell me about Champ all of the time before I even got here. He told me that was the same routine that Champ had. That it went from when he first got in the league. He just goes out there and he plays. He never lets the situation get too big. It’s never too small for him. He goes out there and he’s Champ Bailey every single day. It was dope to play with him.”
Given both Champ and Bowlen are going in this year, we should expect a very large contingent of Broncos Country in the stands at this event. It should be a must see kind of deal on television for the rest of us.
