Gordon is fresh off back-to-back 1,000-yard-plus scrimmage yard seasons. Over his two season in Mile High, the two-time Pro Bowler has 2,275 total yards and put 20 touchdowns on the board for the Broncos.
Earlier when it was reported that the team would be re-signing the 29-year-old RB, it garnered reaction from quarterback Russell Wilson.

The Broncos figure to have weapons across the board this coming season.
Adding Wilson, a nine-time Pro Bowl QB, to an offense that features: Gordon, Javonte Williams, Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick gives Denver the kind of firepower it needs to compete in the stacked AFC West.
Not to mention, new offensive-minded head coach Nathaniel Hackett.
There’s certainly plenty to be excited about in and outside of Broncos Country.
