Broncos, Briefly: Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018

Posted Feb 3, 2018

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Denver Broncos.

Neal Dahlen, 77, has 77 cents in his pocket — and seven Super Bowl rings (Sam Farmer, Los Angeles Times)
And does Dahlen have memories. As a front office executive, his teams were 7-0 in Super Bowls. He won five with the San Francisco 49ers and two with the Denver Broncos. Not bad for a guy who was a football coach at Hillsdale High in San Mateo for 17 years before getting a job in the NFL.
