BRONCOS TO UNVEIL RETIRED NUMBER BANNERS BEFORE KICKOFF SUNDAY

DENVER — The Denver Broncos will permanently display the organization’s three retired numbers for the first time inside Sports Authority Field at Mile High before Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. Fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 2 p.m. as the three retired jersey banners are revealed on the east side of the main scoreboard.

44 — Floyd Little, named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2010 and the Broncos’ Ring of Fame Class of 1984, wore No. 44 from 1967-75 and led the team in rushing for seven consecutive seasons. Known as the ‘The Franchise,’ Little finished his career ranked first in team history in all major rushing categories.

7 — John Elway was a first-ballot inductee into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2004 after being placed in the Broncos’ Ring of Fame in 1999 following the conclusion of his illustrious 16-year career. Elway wore No. 7 from 1983-98, leading the Broncos to five Super Bowl appearances, including back-to-back World Championships in 1997 and 1998. Elway, who retired as the NFL’s all-time winningest quarterback, earned a team-record nine Pro Bowl selections and capped his playing career by earning Super Bowl XXXIII MVP honors.

18 — Frank Tripucka wore No. 18 from 1960-63 as the Broncos’ first quarterback and the first 3,000-yard passer in pro football history. Inducted into the Broncos’ Ring of Fame in 1986, Tripucka encouraged quarterback Peyton Manning to wear his number when Manning joined the Broncos in 2012. The No. 18 retired jersey banner for Tripucka gives special recognition to Manning, who in his four seasons wearing the jersey was named NFL MVP (2013) and was part of two Super Bowl appearances, including a victory in Super Bowl 50.
