    WINNER!!!

    The Denver Broncos drafted Keith Bernard Burns in the 7th round (#210 overall) of the 1994 NFL Draft. He was a Bronco from 1994-98, 2000-03, and 2005-06. He spent the 1999 season with Chicago Bears, and the 2004 season with Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Burns saw playing time as a reserve linebacker and a prominent special teams player. He was arguably one of the best special teams players in franchise history and won 2 SBs with the team..

    Burns then started his coaching career with the Broncos after retirement and now serves as the Chargers’ assistant special teams coach.

    . What were the terms of John Elway’s first NFL contract?

    It was unquestionably the greatest Broncos draft that never was. It featured arguably the greatest fourth round in NFL history. What year was the draft and, in order, name the players the Broncos selected in that fourth round?

    The first Broncos running back to rush for 100 yards by halftime was Floyd Little in a 1970 game at San Francisco. “The Franchise” had 117 yards on nine carries by intermission. Who was the second Broncos player to rush for 100 yards by half?
    How about Otis Armstrong?

    Actually I did. Turk missed the rest of the season because of the injury. I have a hard time picking the dumbest self-inflicted injury of all time. It's either Turk or Gus "Head Butt" Frerotte.

    Turk was a decent LB but played on the Orange Crush and wasn't going to beat out any of our starting LBs. Plus he has one of the greatest names in Broncos history.

    Maybe that was part of it... but it took the Broncos 10 years to pay the 5 million..

    5 Years / $5 million, $1 million signing bonus.

    Winner winner... and for a side bonus... how long did it take to pay Elway that first contract off?
