ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Thursday's media availability with Wade Phillips took a delightful detour from regular football talk when the forever-young defensive coordinator responded to a question about when he'll wear his Super Bowl ring by taking the opportunity to recite lyrics from Drake's "Big Rings."
"As soon as I get it, I'm going to put it on. I may wear it all the time," Phillips said. "We'll see. It's a really big ring. It's a really big thing. We have a really big team, as Drake would say."
Special Teams Coordinator Joe DeCamillis followed Phillips' availability, remarking, "Man, he's a tough one to follow."
Take a look through some of the world's top musicians and athletes in other sports who came out to Broncos practices and games to show their support.
Sticking to the hot topic of the day, DeCamillis said, "Actually, I'm a T.I. guy."
DeCamillis got his chance to tell three-time Grammy winner that in person last season before the Broncos' divisional round playoff game against the Steelers, and he even discarded his usual pregame stoicism to do so.
"Literally, I never go talk to anybody before the game," DeCamillis said. "I walked up to him and hugged him. He's awesome."
