I think this will help out a ton with the amount of players we have moving around on the front seven.

Nice... another benefit of having Elway over football operations is he knows old players that have the ability to communicate and coach. The Albino Rhino is back.

I like this. Meck is one of my all time favorite Broncos, and being as versatile as he was is a bonus to any of the current players just having him around. I am really excited for the front 7 this season. I hope they can stay healthy.

Always love when the team uses previous players/coaches.

Something about the tradition. Meck, Anthony Lynn, Kubiak, Burns, Watson, Dennison, etc.

Love it.

Wonder how many of these guys even know who he is or what he meant to this team back in the day.

Right on! Hard nosed player and a role model these kids desperately need.

ghwk....I seriously doubt any of them are old enough to remember but that is what film is for. Meck going to take these boys to school. Paging gradishar? Randy to the front desk!

Loved this quote:

"They're trying to bring back the tradition that was gone for a little while and get us involved again," Mecklenburg said.

.....talking about himself and TD. (Hopefully more, later. I know Rod was there last month to talk to the team, as well)

Loved Meck. Lined up everywhere and brought it! Not bad for a 12th rd draft pick(i think).

I was just wondering if Atwater is or wants to be involved in coaching at some level.

Actually rod smith is bringing in the first 3. Meck is the first. Once the 3 are in, they will bring in 3 former broncos each. Its called multi level coaching. Rod will make a killing! Btw, coaches don't hav to sell Bazi.

What could he really coach though? Everything he did would get him kicked out of the new NFL.

Actually the other day.. He asked them who was with manning every day he was in working out.. No one raised their hand..

Told them that he was the standard that they had to raise themselves to.. If teh QB is in they should be also..

Love to see the old guys come back and remind the kids about what it means to be a Bronco.

Gonna have to break out a Meck game to watch again, I have been reliving the SB run seasons

I think the Broncos should think about bringing in their best players from the past to every TC. Some baseball teams do this for spring training and I think it's a good idea for football too. Guys like Mecklenburg, Dennis Smith, Atwater, Rod Smith, McCaffrey, TD, etc.

Karl Mecklenburg occasionally led my Sunday school class at FBS in Littleton. The man is a good teacher. I "dated" his daughter back when we were in preschool. 'cept she could easily beat me up now.

Its good to have former players around. It creates a sense of family and belonging, and gives players someone to talk to who isn't an official coach. Sometimes young kids just need a mentor and a retired all pro player has loads of credibility for them to look up to.

I loved Meck. He would be covered in blood that against his albino skin made him look ready for Halloween every Sunday.

Frankly I doubt that many if any of the current crop of players have a clue as to who any of most of the retired Broncos are..

Since we are in a media dead zone compared to those players on the east coast, the most they will every get it the guy is on the ring of fame since they never saw them..
