Tamme, Trevathan, and Woodyard Give Broncos a Kentucky Edge

With former Cats Jacob Tamme, Wesley Woodyard, and Danny Trevathan on the Broncos roster it may be time to star referring to Denver as Lexington West. The trio of former Kentucky guys have been making their presence felt across the NFL all season long.

Jacob Tamme may have accepted a lesser role in the Denver offense this season but he has been ready to step up when the moment called. One example was the matchup against New England from earlier this season when the TE went for 47 yards on five catches and a touchdown. It’s no wonder Peyton Manning likes to carpool with Tamme to the games. Jacob may not see the field much to impact today’s game but if he does get his number called you know he will be ready to perform. That’s what Kentucky guys do.

Then you have the linebacking duo of Trevathan and Woodyard who have been making plays all season long. Despite battling injuries this season Woodyard has made 86 tackles, forced 3 fumbles, and picked the ball off once. He picked up 7 tackles and one fumble against the Pats earlier this year and you know he will be looking to top it today.

Trevathan is in his second year for the Broncs and is quick emerging as one of the leaders on the defensive side of the ball. He led the Broncos in tackles with 128. He forced 4 fumbles and logged 4 interceptions. Against NE this season he was right behind Woodyard as he had 6 tackles and a fumble in the game. What is really special is the bond between the two former Kentucky guys. Woodyard spoke about that bond to the Denver Bronco’s website:

A guy who I’m living through and I love to see play every game is Danny Trevathan.

“He came in like a little brother to us, and now he’s just growing up and taking over things. It’s exciting to see that. To me, that’s what I look forward to, seeing guys step up.”

[…]

“Whoever is on the field, we’re rooting for each other,” Trevathan said. “That is just the way it goes. Me and Wesley have been through it for a long time. This is our second year together, but it feels like 15 years. Having that guy out there — he has really been a great role model in my life, talking to me, helping me get it together. Even though he’s not on the field, he’s with me in my head all the time. That’s how I’m going to carry him.”

Good luck on the field today guys. Make us back in KY proud.

    With Von Miller’s off year,Trevathan and Dominique Rodgers Cromartie have been the top performers on defense. Wesley is the psycological leader and player with the most guts of the defense. Behind Julius Thomas, Tamme’s plays have been limited but he’s made some huge catches for conversion on 3rd down.

    Both are in my Top Five favorite Defensive Players to watch wearing the Blue and White, and Tamme was equally special on the Offensive side, a true grinder. I will be pulling for Denver in hopes that they can be a part of the championship game experience. They have had to hoe a long row to be in position to have a shot at the illustrious championship ring!…a row that BBN hopes the bright future of our Football Cats can one day reap as well. It would be awesome to see them win the Super Bowl!

    Tamme is also a standout special teams player, which adds to his value to the Broncos. He simply does whatever is asked of him.
