ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Former Denver Broncos wide receiver Rod Smith has been elected into the team's Ring of Fame.
Smith, who set every major receiving record in franchise history, becomes the 23rd member of the Broncos to have his name etched into the inner facade encircling Sports Authority Field at Mile High. He will be inducted during a halftime ceremony on Sept. 23.
An undrafted player out of Missouri Southern, Smith finished his career with 849 catches for 11,389 yards receiving and 68 TDs.
Smith helped the Broncos to two Super Bowls and was a three-time Pro Bowl selection.
Said owner Pat Bowlen: "Players like Rod don't come through your door very often, but he came through ours every day with a purpose and hunger to be great."
