Denver Broncos Name 2011 Captains: Kyle Orton, Champ Bailey Lead The Way

The Denver Broncos announced their 2011 team captains this season and there isn't much change from the 2010 setup. On offense quarterback Kyle Orton and lineman Chris Kuper hold the reins there. Cornerback Champ Bailey and safety Brian Dawkins lead the defense. Linebacker Wesley Woodyard will captain the special teams for another year. The other captain spot will roam around each week, and Elvis Dumervil will hold it for Week 1.

Last year, the first five above were captains along with linebacker D.J. Williams and the since departed tight end Daniel Graham.

Woodyard will also assume the starting weakside linebacker spot for a few weeks into the regular season since Williams dislocated his elbow during the preseason.
