Breaking Barriers: Women of the Broncos
Inside the Front Office
Keynote Speaker: Steve Atwater
Steve Atwater, a 2020 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, was chosen as the 20th member of the Broncos' Ring of Fame in 2005 after a brilliant 10-year career with the club from 1989-98. Regarded as one of the toughest safeties in the NFL during his playing days, Atwater was voted to a franchise record-tying seven consecutive Pro Bowls from 1990-96, and his eight career Pro Bowl selections are the second most by a player in Broncos history. Selected by the Broncos in the first round (20th overall) of the 1989 NFL Draft from the University of Arkansas, Atwater went on to serve as a key leader on the Broncos' back-to-back Super Bowl championship teams from 1997-98 and was voted an All-Pro by the Associated Press from 1991-92 and in 1996. He started all 155 regular-season games he played with Denver, a total that ranks 10th in franchise history. Atwater also recorded 24 interceptions that rank ninth in Denver history and 408 interception return yards that rank seventh in club annals. The safety ranks second to only John Elway in career postseason starts by a Bronco as he started all 14 playoff appearances, including three Super Bowls and four AFC Championship Games. Atwater currently serves as the Broncos' current Fan Development Manager, a position he has held since 2017.
