    It was a good guess my friend. I am being a bit picky on this one....yet again!!

    Good try pal! Mike Anderson had a fabulous rookie season, and did play on another NFL team. But in the key stats, his rookie year was less than 1/2 of his entire career. Because you got several parts of this correct (good rookie season/declined performance/2 NFL teams) I'm sending some points!:thumb:

    Following on the theme regarding players who had better rookie seasons....

    This player played 4 seasons with Denver and then another couple on another NFL team.

    He led The Broncos in a key category in his rookie season, but that was over 1/2 of his production for his entire 6 seasons. Who is he?

    Winner

    Eddie Royal was drafted by The Broncos in the second round of the 2008 draft, and had an immediate impact. In his rookie season he had 91 receptions for 980 yards, and scored 5 TDs. But he was very versatile as well, with 140 punt return yards, 600 kickoff return yards (1 for 95) and even managed another 109 rushing yards on 11 carries. His 91 receptions are 2nd all time for a rookie.

    Royal played 4 seasons with Denver before moving on to San Diego for three, and Chicago for two. And though he had a good career, with 400 receptions including 1,188 and 1,375 yards in punt and kickoff returns (respectively), it was his rookie year that stands out, and for which he still has a number of Bronco records.

    This former Bronco played for 9 NFL seasons (on 3 teams), but never matched his rookie season.

    Only 2 players in Broncos' history have had a last name starting with "Z".....Gary Zimmerman and Bob Zeman!

    Edward Robert Zeman was an American football defensive back who played six seasons in the American Football League from 1960 to 1966.

    Zeman was drafted by the Los Angeles Chargers in the 1960 AFL draft. He was part of a stellar defense nicknamed the "Seven Pirates" — a squad which intercepted an AFL record 49 passes during the 1961 season.

    He then played 2 seasons for The Denver Broncos, and in his first season, garnered a Pro Bowl selection on the strength of six interceptions; one was returned for a touchdown.

    Zeman also coached with the Broncos, between 1978 and 1982.

    17 of those INTs were made by guys named Zeman, Goose, and Wahoo. Also had 2 LBs punting and our kicker returning kicks that year

    And this is in fun, but typically there's one winner, and it's the first one to respond correctly. Sometimes rewards are provided, if one feels the respondent is deserving.

    Movin on.....
    I was agreeing with you. Just want to clarify in case any new (to the thread) members stopped by.

    Yes, let's move on.

    No problem Beast! I was joking a bit with you, given I had posted it earlier, and that you clearly did not see. I will look like the culprit. I'm cool with that. I guess I thought that the first person to answer correctly is the so called winner, and CPs awarded accordingly. Maybe I have been following my own guidelines. (And no, I am not looking for CPs)
