This Sunday’s game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High is Fan Appreciation Day, and fans in attendance will receive a Gameday program featuring team captain Wesley Woodyard on the cover.
The cover story, titled “Breakout Bronco,” chronicles Woodyard’s rise from undrafted free agent to one of the league’s most productive linebackers.
Five years ago, linebacker Wesley Woodyard was fighting for a roster spot as an undrafted free agent out of Kentucky.
This season, he’s fighting for a Pro Bowl berth as one of the AFC’s most productive linebackers.
Through 15 games, Woodyard is one of just four AFC players with at least 100 tackles, a sack and an interception. He’s set career highs in almost every category this season, including his three interceptions and four sacks.
“I’m trying to continue to work on my craft and get better every day,” Woodyard said. “My teammates believe in me, and I’ve just been having fun out there this year. Not worrying about anything, just going out there and playing football.”
The program also features Q&As with running back Knowshon Moreno and Quarterbacks Coach Adam Gase.
