ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — During the last decade — which encompassed the Peyton Manning era, Super Bowl 50 and beyond — one nickname within the Denver Broncos' organization stood out above the rest: The “No Fly Zone.”

Even with a deadly pass rush, a historic passing attack, and one of the best defenses of recent memory, only Denver’s secondary was good enough to earn a name known by so many — although significant personalities within the defensive backfield certainly didn’t hurt their cause for national recognition.

Now, with the departure of Aqib Talib, along with T.J. Ward a year ago, many have questioned if the “No Fly Zone” still exists — most notably Talib himself. The answer to those questions won’t come until the fall when the men in Orange & Blue take the field.

But there’s one player above the rest that will have more of an impact in answering that question.
