A signed contract, a new uniform and 20 up-downs later, cornerback Jonathan Wilhite is a Bronco.
“It’s been an easy transition for me,” Wilhite said after his first practice at Dove Valley. “I did my up-downs and they welcomed me in as a part of the defense — as part of the team. It’s been great so far.”
The former New England Patriot, who will wear No. 29 in Denver, said he was prepared for Defensive Coordinator Dennis Allen’s up-down initiation but admitted it was tougher than expected.
“I was tired,” Wilhite said. “I was trying to get myself ready for that. I heard that it’s a tradition that all the guys do, so I enjoyed it.”
