Bronco Links – 6/14/17


Garett Bolles

“[He’s made] a lot of progress. It’s a tough spot to play as a rookie. … When he knows what to do, he can block his guy, his talent shows. … He’s a first-round pick for a reason.”~Vance Joseph on Garett Bolles.



Jake Plummer set a Broncos single-game passing record on October 31, 2004 when he passed for 499 yards, though the Broncos fell 41-28 to the Atlanta Falcons.


Running Back Rick Parros (1981-84) is 59, Linebacker Jeroy Robinson (1990) is 49 and Linebacker Jim Thibert (1965) is 77.
