ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Prima donna wide receivers are all the rage in today's air-it-out NFL, demanding passes and attention, preening for crowds and cameras.
Not in Denver.
Led by the shy Demaryius Thomas, the soft-spoken Wes Welker and the selfless Eric Decker, the Broncos represent the antithesis of those high maintenance superstars who are always going back to the huddle telling the quarterback they were open on that previous play.
The addition of Welker this offseason gives the Broncos their Three Amigos Version 2.0, a trio that combined for 297 receptions and 29 TD catches last season.
Rather than demanding to be featured, they all say they won't mind catching fewer footballs in 2013.
Peyton Manning might have the best triumvirate of ball-catchers in the NFL, and he definitely has the quietest.
