Broncos safety David Bruton was emotional once the Broncos secured the Super Bowl 50 victory. He tried to hold back the tears, but the cameras caught him anyway. It was bittersweet.
He was a key contributor to the Broncos No. 1 ranked defense, but was delegated to the sideline during the playoff stretch. Bruton broke his leg during the first quarter of the Broncos’ Dec. 20 regular season loss to Pittsburgh. He ended up finishing the game with the injury believing that it was only a bruise. He had to be carried off the field and into the locker room by two teammates.
