Simon Fletcher

Drafted in the second round of the 1985 NFL Draft out of the University of Houston by the Denver Broncos, Simon Fletcher was a dubbed “tweener”, that is, to tall and lanky to play linebacker yet not heavy enough to play on the line.

He would become an excellent outside linebacker in Denver's 3-4 scheme however and was a pass rushing specialist.

Playing in the League for 11 seasons (all with the Broncos), Fletcher recorded 97.5 sacks (which is a club record to this day) and 2 forced fumbles. From the 1989-through-1993 seasons, Fletcher recorded 66 sacks and set an NFL record of 10 consecutive games with a sack (which has since been tied by Dallas outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware).

Underrated throughout his entire career, Fletcher was never even voted to a Pro Bowl. He should be in the Broncos Ring of Fame.

  1. How can he not even be in the Broncos ring of fame? This is as much an injutice as some of the other guys not being in the HOF. C'mon Broncos brass, lets correct this. How can someone like Lionel Taylor be on it and not Simon?
