"At first it seemed surreal, and I just had to gather myself for a moment and just think about the opportunity that I have here," Davis told the Broncos' official team website. "It's an amazing opportunity, it's going to be a great experience -- I can feel it -- and I'm just very, very thankful that I had a chance to get traded to Denver for this particular reason."
Now returning to the Super Bowl, in city he called home for a decade, Davis has a chance to try to snatch that elusive ring.
"It's very special, because before I left here, I knew it was for a reason," Davis said. "There had to have been a purpose for me going to Denver, and I just kept that faith and that belief and I knew that it had to be something good that would come out of it. We're back here and it's just like I imagined: We're in the Super Bowl."
