Demaryius Thomas: In 2018, Thomas got traded to the Houston Texans. Since being traded, Thomas hasn’t put up numbers anywhere near the ones he had as a Denver Bronco. After ending the season with 677 yards and 5 touchdowns, Thomas became a free agent where he would sign with the New York Jets. In 2019, Thomas struggled with injuries, which only allowed him to play in 10 games last season. Currently he is a free agent, and Denver fans have hopes of resigning him as a mentor for the young talent.

CJ Anderson: In 2017, Anderson started all 16 games for Denver before being released on April 16, 2018. On May 7th, he was signed by the Panthers where he would play the role as the backup to Christian McCaffery. On November 12th, he would be released once again, and would not see game action again until December 18th when he was signed by the Rams. Anderson found success with the Rams, but once Todd Gurley returned from injury, he saw very little playing time. After playing 2 games for the Lions in 2019, Anderson got cut again and has yet to see the field since.

Emmanuel Sanders: Sanders is probably the most successful Bronco, post Super Bowl 50. He’s had a great career, and is still playing in the league. In 2019, the Broncos traded him to San Fransisco where he put up great numbers, helping the offense reach Super Bowl 50. Sanders will always be a Bronco at heart, but sometimes that’s just how the league works. He did not get traded because he was playing poor, he got traded because the Broncos wanted the ball in Sutton’s hands more, which most likely upset Sanders. This offseason, Sanders signed with the New Orleans Saints, where he will be returning to Denver in Week 12.

Brock Osweiler: Although Brock did not play in Super Bowl 50, he had a very interesting career. Everything was set up for Osweiler, he got to train under Peyton Manning for 3 seasons, and then it was supposed to be his turn to lead the team. Osweiler decided to take a different path in free agency by signing with the Texans. After not finding much success with Houston, he was traded to the Browns which failed once again. The Broncos gave Osweiler another chance, but he failed to prove that he was deserving of the starting job. After one last dance with Miami, Brock would retire from the NFL at the age of 29.
