The Denver Broncos announced their captains for the 2010 season.

Denver has seven captains. They are:

Offense

Daniel Graham, tight end. My comment: He is a quiet leader and is one of the better blocking tight ends in the league.

Chris Kuper, guard. My comment: He is also quiet, but he’s a tough player who is a true professional.

Kyle Orton, quarterback. My comment: This is Orton’s team. His teammates respect how he has handled adversity. They believe in him.

Defense

Champ Bailey, cornerback. My comment: What can you say? A hall of famer.

Brian Dawkins, safety. My comment: The clear vocal leader on this roster. Dawkins oozes leadership.

D.J. Williams, linebacker. My comment: Not a big talker, but he has a way about him.

Special teams

Wesley Woodyard, linebacker. My comment: Well respected for making a name for himself after being an undrafted free agent.
