Steve Atwater Biography
Steve Atwater was born October 28, 1966 in Chicago, Illinois and is a former player who spent most of his career playing free safety for the Denver Broncos. Atwater and Dennis Smith made up a Broncos secondary that was known for their ferocious hits on opposing players. An eight-time Pro Bowl selection, Atwater also won two Super Bowl rings with the Broncos.
Atwater is remembered and celebrated for both his play as well as his leadership. Atwater was the captain of the Broncos defense for both Super Bowl-winning years of 1997 and 1998. For the majority of his career, Atwater was used by Denver much like a linebacker as an eighth defender to stop the run. His impact on the rushing offense of opposing teams is shown by the following statistic: prior to his arrival in 1988, Denver's defense was ranked next-to-last in rushing defense, surrendering 2538 yards that year and a league-worst 4.6 yard average. In 1989, Atwater's first year, Denver's defense jumped 20 places to tie for 7th against the run, surrendering only 1580 yards and tied for 3rd best with a 3.7 yard average.
Because of his unusual role as an eighth defender against the run, Atwater achieved extraordinary numbers in terms of tackles by a free safety averaging 149 tackles from 1989-1993, successive seasons from before shifting to a more traditional safety role in 1994 under head coach Mike Shanahan. Over a 10-year Bronco career, Atwater totaled an astounding 1,038 tackles. He was named to the NFL's All Decade Team for the 1990s.
On October 9, 2005, Atwater was enshrined into the Broncos Ring of Fame at Invesco Field at Mile High.
