Jersey Swap

Posted Oct 29, 2013

Broncos players had a little bit of fun with their jerseys during their Tuesday practice of bye week.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The man wearing No. 18 on the practice fields at Broncos headquarters on Tuesday broke from team stretches after they concluded and then jogged over to run warm-up drills with the tight ends.

That’s because the man wearing 18 was not the quarterback with whom the number has become synonymous over the past 16 NFL seasons.

It was, instead, tight end Jacob Tamme.

Broncos players had a little bit of fun with their Tuesday bye week practice, exchanging jerseys with one another and wearing different numbers – which made for some pretty funny visuals, such as wide receiver Demaryius Thomas wearing linebacker Von Miller’s 58 jersey and at least three different players wearing No. 6.

Tamme wearing Peyton Manning’s familiar No. 18, however, may have taken the cake. 

“I was looking for 84 but he wasn’t out there,” Tamme laughed when asked who he was looking to throw to. “It was fun. Some of the guys were trying to get their college numbers. I was actually 18 in college and obviously I know Peyton pretty well. It was fun, kind of a fun way to lighten it up a little bit while we’re trying to take advantage of these couple days and get better and have fun at the same time.”

Safety Rahim Moore credited linebacker Wesley Woodyard with the idea.

“(Woodyard) did, man,” Moore said. “It was like 6:50 in the morning and he decided to do that.”

For Moore, who donned No. 3 on Tuesday, it was a fun throwback to his playing days at UCLA.

“I went back to my college number. It was good,” he said. “It was a good way to spark us up and get us ready for practice. We’re going to do it again tomorrow.”

Others went as far back as high school to find their jersey for Tuesday's session.

It also meant that certain players – take defensive tackles Terrance Knighton and Kevin Vickerson wearing 1 and 2, for example – got to suit up with numbers that they had maybe never worn before on a football field. 

“You see a lot of big guys – they never got a chance to ever wear single-digit numbers, so that’s like their dream come true,” Moore said with a laugh.
