The Denver Broncos are a proud franchise and one of the more popular teams in the National Football League. They got their start in 1960, the first season of the old AFL, and through the years have had a number of very good running backs. Most running backs are at one time or another judged based on how many 1000 yard rushing seasons they have had. Who has had the most 1000 yard rushing seasons in Denver Broncos history though?
Terrell Davis is one of the best running backs the Denver Broncos have ever had. During his time with the team not only was he one of the best in the league, the Broncos were one of the best teams in the league too. With four career 1000 yard rushing seasons, he sits atop the list of Broncos running backs in that category.
Here is a look at the top five running backs in Broncos history based on how many 1000 yard seasons they have had.
#1 – Terrell Davis – 4
#2 – Four players tied for second place with two 1000 yard rushing seasons apiece:
Mike Anderson – 2
Otis Armstrong – 2
Bobby Humphrey – 2
Clinton Portis – 2
