    The only other person on your list which should be in the RoF is still playing so it won't happen for a while: Champ.

    Just because we loved people or they were favorites doesn't mean they were important to the success of the franchise.
    There is an owner in the RoF already - Gerald Phipps.

    And Randy Gradishar is in the RoF. Has been for years.

        Staying with OP, I would like to see Jason Elam.

        Why?
        Spent 15 of his 17 years in the NFL with the Broncos.
        2x SB Champ
        Tied for Longest Field Goal in NFL History
        Most Points Scored by one player for one team in NFL History.

        He retired in 2010, so he should be eligible to go in 2015.

          If they played for the team, they were a part of the team.

          If a guy played for the Broncos, whether it's 1 year or 20, he is/was a Bronco. By definition, he is/was a Bronco.

          If anything, a Free Agent is MORE of a Bronco than someone drafted, because the Free Agent chose to go there. A draft pick doesn't have the same choice.

          Since years of service to a team don't count, do the years they were with the Broncos contain achievements worthy of a Ring of Fame? That's all that matters.

          In Peyton's case, were he to bring a Super Bowl or two to the Broncos, and break a bunch of records, then he would be a major part of the team's legacy and therefore deserve to go up there. He would be the guy who all but brought some of the greatest memories to the franchise you love.

          If any of the guys on that list did that in a short time (or a long time), then they should be on there too.

            I agree with Champ, but I also think Jason Elam and Simon Fletcher are deserving. Also if Manning plays out the majority of his contract and retires with another ring or two it would be hard to justify not adding him.
