    He never played a down with The Broncos, but played 15 years with another NFL team.

    Merlin Jay Olsen was a Hall Of Fame player, announcer, and actor. He played his entire 15-year professional football career in the National Football League as a defensive tackle with the Los Angeles Rams. He was selected to the Pro Bowl a record 14 straight times, missing selection only in the last year of his career. Olsen is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame. As an actor, he portrayed farmer Jonathan Garvey on Little House on the Prairie. After leaving that series, he starred in his own NBC drama, Father Murphy.

    Coming out of college, Olsen had offers from both the Los Angeles Rams of the National Football League and the Denver Broncos of the rival American Football League. He chose the security of the NFL and signed with the Rams.

    Olsen was also known as an NFL commentator for making the assumption that Jim McMahon left a game from whiplash, when in fact, the 1984 match up between the Bears and Raiders (dubbed the most violent NFL game of all time) resulted in McMahon actually suffering from a lacerated kidney!

    The Hall of Famer, Willie Brown was undrafted. He was signed by the Houston Oilers of the American Football League (AFL), but was cut from the team during training camp. He made his debut with the Denver Broncos, even though the best part of his career with the Oakland Raiders. He was a Bronco from 1963-66, and was traded to Oakland in 1967, playing there for 12 seasons.

    The corner from Grambling State was a massive hitter and the all-time leading Raider in interceptions, He was named to five AFL All-Star games and four NFL Pro Bowls. He was also named All-AFL three times and All-NFL four times. In 1984 he was inducted into the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    Question: Another undrafted free agent who blossomed into an extremely solid player for the Denver Broncos was known for his blocking skill, however he was very intimidating when he did get his hands on the football, and he finished with 192 receptions and 15 touchdowns.

    Dwayne Carswell played primarily as a tight end from 1994-2005 for the Denver Broncos. He was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent. He played college football at Liberty University.

    Carswell won two Super Bowl rings with the Broncos in 1998 and 1999 and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2001. His first career reception came on a five-yard pass from Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway. Carswell received the Ed Block Courage Award, after suffering season-ending internal injuries in October 2005, in a car crash in Aurora, Colorado.
