The Denver Broncos have announced three veterans will serve as team captains for the 2015-2016 season.

Peyton Manning is the captain for the offense, DeMarcus Ware is the captain for the defense and David Bruton will serve as special teams' captain.

This is Manning's 4th season with the Broncos. It's Ware's second season with the team.

Bruton was drafted by the Broncos in 2009. He's been known for his special teams work since college. The Broncos website says Bruton, "Established himself as one of the top special-teams gunners in the country while appearing in 596 career special-teams plays at Notre Dame."

Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said the team will also have weekly game captains.
