    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?

    Updated.....he also played for Seattle.
    Could this category be in the negative?

    For example Garrett Bolles led the team in holding penalties in 2018.

    It can be considered key when you consider how it affect the team!

    I would not call this a negative category. But I think I will add one more clue....

    He played in the 80s.

    Rick Parros!! He started all 16 games his rookie year and followed up with 17 more starts the following 5 years and his yardage is comparable to. I donít know him and would never have guessed this as I was born 1980 but with intense research the past 10 minutes, I got it.

    Make the CPs rain down on me!

    WINNER!

    Though he led The Broncos in his rookie season, he only managed another 632 yards rushing for the rest of his career, Therefore he had over 54% of his rushing career in year one.

    Here's one offered to me by a fellow member:

    Which former Denver Broncos draft pick once referred to a Jim McMahon injury as just whiplash?

    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!

    Which former undrafted NFL star, who made his debut as a Denver Bronco, was inducted into the pro football Hall of Fame long before John Elway?
