Pericak Excited for Opportunity

Posted Aug 1, 2014

A lifelong Broncos fan, Colorado native Will Pericak signed a contract with the team earlier this week.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Defensive lineman Will Pericak’s dream came true earlier this week.

A fan of the Broncos since he was a kid growing up in Boulder, Colo., Pericak received a call from Matt Russell, the Broncos' director of player personnel.

He missed the call.

"I called him back one minute later because I sat on my phone and he goes, ‘Good reaction time.’ And I was like ‘I’m excited about it,'" Pericak said.

Russell was calling him to offer him a spot on the Broncos' roster.

Two hours after he signed his contract, Pericak was in full-padded practice and though he was a little bit rusty because he hadn't played in a while, he enjoyed competing on the football field again.

"You love it," he said. "Being able to play football again. Sometimes you question it when a team doesn’t pick you up right away and you think, ‘Is my football career over?’ and it feels great to be playing football. There’s no better feeling."

He said he has been staying up late studying the playbook and said he still has a lot to learn. He knows that to make this team, he has to learn quickly.

"My attitude is to learn fast and show improvement and show improvement enough that the coaches notice me and work hard and let the chips fall where they fall but try to make them fall where you want them," he said.

While Pericak is learning to work with new teammates, he has also been reunited with old CU teammate Ryan Miller.

"Good to see Will again," Miller said. "It’s nice to see friendly faces, wherever you are. I don’t care where you are. I hope Will does the best he can and I look forward to playing against him… again."

Pericak competed in the Broncos' rookie mini camp in May as a tryout player.

He spent his rookie season in 2013 playing on San Diego and Jacksonville's practice squad after being signed by the Ravens as a free agent out of the University of Colorado.

Growing up, his favorite Broncos were John Elway and Bill Romanowski. Playing for other teams was difficult for Pericak, as he always remained an orange and blue fan at heart.

"Going to other teams last year I always had to kind of hide that I was a Broncos fan, especially because I was with the Ravens," Perciak said. "Last year they beat the Broncos and I was kind of upset about it but I had to act like I was happy about it."
