More on Rod’s stellar Bronco career:
After the 1994 draft, Smith went undrafted and was signed by the Denver Broncos as a free agent. His first NFL catch was a last-minute 43-yard touchdown from John Elway in a 38–31 win against the Washington Redskins (one of the greatest plays in Broncos history!) In fourteen seasons as an NFL player, Smith had eight seasons of at least 1,000 receiving yards. He had two seasons of at least 100 receptions (2000: 100; 2001: 113). In 2000, Smith and teammate Ed McCaffrey became only the second wide receiver duo on the same team to each gain 100 receptions in the same season. His 113 receptions in 2001 led the league. He was a starting wide receiver of the Broncos’ back-to-back Super Bowl championships in 1997 and 1998. In the Broncos’ 34–19 win in Super Bowl XXXIII, Smith had 5 receptions for 152 yards, tied for 5th most in Super Bowl history, including an 80-yard touchdown reception (another all time great Bronco memory!). He was a finalist for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2004.
