Former University of Hawaii placekicker Jason Elam will be inducted into the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame.  The three-time Pro Bowler will enter the exclusive club with John Lynch and Simon Fletcher, becoming the 29th, 30th and 31st members.

"You knew that when he lined up a for a field goal he was going to make it most of the time," said Broncos general manager John Beake.  "And he was dependable."
