                      Have to spread some CPs around before I can get you.

                      Gerald Whillhite was drafted in the first round in 1982. He played 7 seasons with the Broncos from 1982 until 1988. He only had two seasons where he played in every game the other 5 seasons he missed time mainly due to injury but he was on the team.

                      His career stats are 380 carries for 1688 yds, 207 receptions for 1767 yds, total from scrimmage 3455 yds with 22 touch downs.

                      After he scored he would do a back flip in the end zone.

                        Today's Trivia


                        I was an undrafted player and ended up playing for the Broncos for 9 seasons. I played two positions on the team. I ran the ball 13 times for 171 yards and 1 TD, I caught the ball 82 times for 1684 yards and 11 TD. As you can tell these stats were not why the Broncos kept me around. It was the other position that I played that kept me on the team so long.

                        Unfortunately during my career we never made it to the playoffs. Who am I?

                                Billy Van Heusen was the player I was looking for. He was listed as a WR and Punter. Not sure how he got his rushing stats unless they were from doing WR reverses. In the 109 games as the punter he had 574 punts for 23936 yards with only 4 getting blocked. His longest punt was a 78 yarder which is 2nd longest in Bronco history.
