There is no shortage of ways the Broncos use their all-purpose safety.
The Swiss Army Knife of the Broncos defense is drawing imaginary lines through the air inside the locker room. Will Parks is taking a visitor inside the mind of an all-purpose NFL safety, a position with diverse responsibilities that require, at least in his case, unusual study habits.
“I don’t use flash cards, but at home I have notes all over the place,” Parks said as he began pantomiming his note-taking process. “I’ve got this personnel here and this personnel here, but I attach it and I’ve got lines drawn all over. But this might refer to this, so now I have a line and an arrow I draw over here. As the week goes, I clear it all up. But for every page (of notes most players take), I’ve got four or five. It’s crazy, but I enjoy it.”
