Keith Bishop’s Career

During Keith Bishop’s ten year career with the Denver Broncos he was perhaps their best offensive lineman. Bishop played the offensive guard position and made the Pro Bowl following the Broncos Super Bowl seasons of 1986 and 1987.

During the 1986 AFC Championship Game against the Cleveland Browns, the Broncos had to start at their own 2 yard line with about 5 minutes to play, trailing by a touchdown. Even though the situation seemed dire, Keith Bishop said in the huddle, We got 'em exactly where we want 'em.” (1) That helped loosen up the team and John Elway led the Broncos on a 98 yard drive to tie the game and then won the game in overtime.

After Keith Bishop lost his job to injury in the 1989 season, he retired before training camp of the next year, giving him a ten year career with the Denver Broncos.
