Broncos Receive AFC Championship Rings

Posted Jun 10, 2014

On Monday, the Broncos received their AFC Championship rings.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- On Monday, the Broncos got their rings.

The players received their AFC Championship rings in a team meeting, which included messages from Head Coach John Fox, quarterback Peyton Manning and Broncos Ring of Famer Tom Jackson.

"I’ve been a part of three of those, unfortunately – but you recognize that it was a great effort," Fox said of receiving conference championship rings. "It’s not like the Olympics where they pass out three medals. You only get two medals in this league. When you can get either one of them is good, but the real prize is that gold medal.”

The message of the meeting, Manning said, was about learning from last season to take the next step in 2014 without taking anything for granted.

"We did a lot of good things last year and we need to build on those things -- you just don’t go out and go a step further because you went that far last year," he said. "It’s why did we get that far last year? It’s because we put a lot of hard work in and we had a great offseason and a great training camp. We’re off to a start that way as well but we have to go out and do it again and then try to find a way to finish it. That’s what the meeting was about last night and I thought Coach Fox was very clear on what the goals were, what the goals are for this season."

"We talk about going out and earning it every day and going out and trying to be better every day and focusing on the now."

Below, see how a handful of Broncos chimed in on Twitter after receiving their rings.
