“Worth the wait.”— Denver Broncos (@Broncos) February 1, 2020
The moment @SteveAtwater27 got “The Knock” from the @ProFootballHOF: pic.twitter.com/O9pSIDkXeR
Steve Atwater was one of the most dominant safeties of the 1990s and rock in the Denver Broncos secondary for his entire career. He also had an MVP-type performance in Super Bowl 32 if only Terrell Davis hadn’t had one of his own that day.
The wait for Atwater is over. He will join the Class of 2020 and be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
“This is a great day for Steve, the Broncos and all our fans,” President & CEO Joe Ellis said on Saturday. “Steve was a dominant safety who changed the game as one of the most-feared players of his generation. With as modest and humble as Steve is, you would never know about all of his Pro Bowls, Super Bowls and many other accolades. He’s just an unbelievable ambassador for our team and league.”
Enjoy the cool video of Atwater getting the knock at the door as he was officially voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Go Broncos! And one hell of a Mile High Salute to you, Steve!
