If NFL draft scouts based their rankings on professionalism and character, John Lynch and Brandon Stokley probably would have been among the top five picks in their respective draft classes.

Both players were pretty good on the field, as well.  A former safety who won a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Lynch was known as one of the hardest hitting safeties of his time.  Stokley, who won two Super Bowls — one in Baltimore and one in Indianapolis — caught over 330 passes for 4,680 yards and 34 touchdowns during his career.

The two players spent time together in Denver, during the final years of their respective careers.  Although they never won a Super Bowl with the Broncos, the combined three-time Super Bowl Champions are trying to get Denver back to the Super Bowl by helping the team recruit free agent quarterback Peyton Manning, who was a teammate of Stokley’s for four years.

When Manning was visiting the Broncos’ facility in Dove Valley on Saturday, Lynch and Stokley stopped by to try and help sway him towards Denver, according to multiple sources.  Their presence, and whatever they told him, may have helped — as sources say that Manning is “leaning towards Denver.”

Stokley and Lynch are two class acts.  Hopefully Manning makes a decision soon, so we can stop playing this waiting game.

    I would live if Peyton came to Denver mainly because he’s an all time fav but also because he’ll likely bring Wayne a great vet WR Saturday who fills a big hole at center Clark who plays another position of need but he big picture it really allows the broncos to focus ion defense in the draft take 2 DT and 2 CB and a add another RB and LB of course they might even potentially sign addai either way they would essentially get 2-3 more FA just by signing peyton. That being said I’m weary of all the positive news it always seems to be a surprise team that signs the big FA and rarely is it the “front runner” that gets the prize…
