DENVER — When Owner Pat Bowlen and former cornerback Champ Bailey are enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 3, three current Broncos will be in attendance.
Outside linebacker Von Miller, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. and defensive end Derek Wolfe will represent the Broncos' active roster at the Saturday evening enshrinement, President/CEO Joe Ellis said Friday.
“Mr. Bowlen … he’s always loved his players and taken a special interest in them,” Ellis said Friday. “I think it’s meaningful to him that [three] of today’s current roster members will be at the festivities on Saturday.”
Ellis also revealed several other scheduling notes for the week of the Hall of Fame game and the enshrinement events.
The Broncos will arrive in Ohio on Wednesday, July 31, and the team will make a stop before returning to Cleveland to spend the night before game.
“They will get off the plane and they will go to the Hall of Fame for a tour, which I think will be really fun and meaningful to the players to be able to see that and see the legends of the game and all the various displays,” Ellis said. “It’s really an exciting thing to get to go and look and participate, get a chance to witness history and witness greatness. That will be fun for the entire team.”
The Broncos will play in the Hall of Fame game on the evening of Aug. 1 and then return to Denver.
“We’ve got to get back to work,” Ellis said.
Miller, Harris and Wolfe, though, will return to Canton at some point before the enshrinement festivities.
All three players also played with Bailey, who retired after the 2013 season.
