After the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced that their 2019 class included Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen and former cornerback Champ Bailey, many of their friends took to social media to congratulate them.
I’m so thrilled for Pat! For what he did for the Broncos and the league, he is the definition of a Hall of Famer.— John Elway (@johnelway) February 3, 2019
