In 2012, two players in particular always seemed to be around the ball on special teams.

Linebackers Nate Irving and Steven Johnson tied for the team lead with 10 special-teams stops for the year. That knack for tackling the ball-carrier will be even more necessary in 2013, when both players are expected to compete for the team's starting middle linebacker spot.

"We’re excited about those two," Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway said Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine. "They’re both guys very capable of handling that job.”
