    Should have been more specific. That's the trouble with my home made trivia!!

    Here are the choices on O:

    QB, RB, WR, T, G, C, TE

    And only talking Unrestricted, not UDFAs.

    2 - DT
    3 - CB

    This would mean that we have gone after and thereby signed ILBs the most since inception in 1993, followed by DTs and CBs. It is strictly a total count of players we have chosen, by position.

    Number of players signed at the position?
    Most productive in terms of winning and pro bowls?

    Since its inception in 1993, what are the top 3 Offensive positions that The Broncos have signed in Unrestricted Free Agency? To get the final answer, you must correctly identify the #1 signed position, along with the other two (even if the 2nd and 3rd are in reverse).

    Please only make one full guess at a time.:thumb:

    It makes sense his totals were that low because wasn’t it over halfway through the season before he became the starter? And I feel like I remember he also went down before seasons end.
    Yeah Hillis only made it 3 or 4 games before tearing his hamstring. I remember a chunky Tatum Bell running all over the Chargers. First time I had seen a shotgun toss in a long time

    When I saw the stat I just had to get it in here! What's also interesting is that 5 players could have been the team leader that year, and 3 other than Hillis, could have done it by just having one improved game! Sure, Bell was 94 yards short, but heck, that's not a big gap.

    Here's the totals:

    Hillis 343
    Pittman 320
    Young 303
    Bell 249

    and even Jay Cutler was in the race, with 200!

    But in 2008, The Broncos finished 12th in rushing, with 1,862 yards, as they employed a committee backfield, including Hillis, Michael Pittman, Selvin Young and Tatum Bell.

    Most yards from scrimmage without a fumble?
    Again, a good guess, but I can not verify if that's historically unique.

    Double dipping on clue: It's an annual stat, by one player, that is linked to the Broncos annual stat of the same category. Most but least, relative to history.

    Sorry pal. Keep trying. Unless you can verify the specifics of course.

    CLUE:

    This is an annual type stat.
