ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Three Broncos greats were elected into the team's Ring of Fame on Tuesday, the club announced.
Kicker Jason Elam (1993-2007), linebacker Simon Fletcher (1985-1995) and safety John Lynch (2004-2007) will be inducted during a ceremony at a to-be-determined Broncos home game this season.
Owner Pat Bowlen created the Ring of Fame in 1984 to honor players and administrators who had significant roles in the franchise's history.
With the three newest additions, the Ring of Fame will increase to 31 members -- each displayed on the Level 5 facade of Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
Elam, a three-time Pro Bowler, is the Broncos' all-time leader in field goals (395) and points (1,786) -- the second-highest totals in NFL history for a single team.
Fletcher spent his entire career with the Broncos. He is the team's all-time sacks leader with 97.5. Fletcher never missed a game.
Lynch was only with the Broncos four seasons but was selected to the Pro Bowl each year. He has been a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in each of the past three years.
