Broncos Add Silver Lombardi Trophies to Locker Room for Stretch Run
The Denver Broncos added silver Heisman Trophies to their locker room recently to celebrate their three Super Bowl Championships as football enters its stretch drive.
“That’s cool,” Broncos safety T.J. Ward said. “I like seeing those on a daily basis.”

The Broncos had an offday last Sunday and when they arrived to the locker room one Wednesday the trophies were there.
“It’s good that there’s some in this building, that’s a good thing,” said Broncos Coach Gary Kubiak said. “Those things don’t do you any good right now, it’s a new year, a new battle. I think this team’s really excited … we’re there, six weeks to play, a lot of big football games to play in, that’s why we do what we do.”
The Broncos won back to back Super Bowl titles in 1997 and 1998, as well as last year’s Super Bowl 50, when the NFL sported gold on the field.
“Pretty cool, especially this home stretch for us, not that we need a reminder, it’s cool to see them in there,” quarterback Trevor Siemian said. “And that’s the goal, that’s what we’re all working for.”
In addition to last February’s Super Bowl 50, the Broncos won back-to-back titles to close out the 1997 and 1998 seasons.
At seven pounds, the Lombardi Trophy is entirely made of sterling silver.
