    Watching the Broncos playoff game today from my place in the Bronx. I somehow came across this article. Many years ago, early 1980's, I was a young New Yorker who was living in the Denver area. I worked at a place called the "Foot Locker." One day, in came this "Giant" of a man, with very blonde hair and large feet. I was the one who waited on this man, and sold him a pair of athletic shoes. I am 55 years old, now, and recall that day but not the exact conversation of course. I do remember, however, asking this guy if he was a Denver Bronco. He said yes, and smiled. I said, "you're Rulon Jones, right?" He said yes. Rulon, you likely will never see this comment, but you could not have been nicer nor more decent. We talked for a lengthy period of time and I recall to this day your humility. I'm still and will always be a New York Giants fan, but you're one Bronco who made an impression on me way back when. Thank you, and wishing prosperity and health to you and your family.

    10,000 acres?

    One of "several" such hunting ranches?

    Sounds like Rulon did pretty danged good!

    Well, good for him. He deserves every penny of it!

    Sounds like Mr. Jones is one of the few that knows that there is life after football. Good for him and his wonderful family.

    I'm hoping this guy gets his place in the Broncos Ring of Honor, if that hasn't already. He was a great player, perhaps even Hall of Fame material.

    as a youngster I snuck down to the USU sideline in Logan during the 4th quarter of a BYU game....BYU was blowing out the Aggies, yet Rulon Jones didn't hesitate to sign my football for me, during the game. I've never forgotten that, thanks Rulon, I still have the ball.
