Danny Trevathan Signs $2.2 million Deal
With Broncos, May 24, 2012

LEESBURG - On Tuesday a member of the Yellow Jackets Nation became multi-millionaire. Danny
Trevathan officially became a Denver Bronco, signing a four-year, $2.2 million contract according
to Aaron Wilson of
Profootball.scout.com.

Trevathan was picked by the Broncos in the sixth round of the draft, and his contract includes a
signing bonus of roughly $104,000 and base salaries of $390,000, $480,000, $570,000 and
$660,000. Trevathan joins a trio of Kentucky alums in Denver, with
Jacob Tamme, Wesley
Woodyard, and Jeremy Jarmon on the roster, as well as former UK wide receiver Anthony “Champ”
Kelley on staff.

"I'm proof that nothing is impossible,"
Trevathan said. "It took a lot of work from a lot of people, but
I got there. I want that to be an example to everyone at
Leesburg that you can accomplish anything
with hard work."  

























Trevathan is a athletic linebacker whose speed and playing intensity have drawn comparisons to
UK All-SEC linebacker Wesley Woodyard. He was a three-year starter at Leesburg High School
(Leesburg, Fla.), leading the team Leesburg to two state playoffs appearances and a District
Championship in 2007 the first since 1992.
Trevathan was named Third-team all-state, covering all
classifications, by the
Florida Sportswriters Association in 2007.

The
Denver Broncos are wasting no time in signing their draft picks. Trevathan gives the Broncos
four draft picks under contract. There are three draftees still unsigned as the team continues their
Organized Team Activities. The sixth-rounder is the fourth pick to sign with the team and the
signings have come on the last four weekdays.

The
Denver Broncos used their final pick in the 2012 NFL Draft on Kentucky linebacker Danny
Trevathan. The pick was included as compensation in the trade that sent former quarterback Tim
Tebow to the New York Jets. Trevathan is expected to compete on special teams and add depth to
a Denver defense that looked destructive for stretches last season.





















"I can't wait to get out there and get to work, learning the system," Trevathan said.


Trevathan is one of the top 5 SEC steals of the draft according to Barrett Sallee SEC lead blogger
for www.bleacherreport.com.


"
Trevathan's size is what limited him during the draft process. At 6'1", 232 lbs, he's a little bit
undersized as an NFL linebacker. That didn't seem to stop him at Kentucky though," said Sallee.



































"He will have to prove himself on special teams with the Broncos, but once he proves himself at the
NFL level, he should enjoy a long and prosperous career."

Trevathan is excited about having the opportunity to play in the NFL after outstanding careers at
Leesburg High School and the University of Kentucky. He was the only player with area ties to be
selected in the Draft.

"I feel good," said Trevathan. "I wanted to get drafted in an earlier round, but I'm certainly not
upset. How could I be disappointed? I got drafted!
































Trevathan led the Wildcats -- and the entire Southeastern Conference -- in tackles  in 2011 with
143, the second straight year he accomplished that feat.

For his career,
Trevathan has 374 tackles, six sacks, 32.5 tackles for loss, 11 forced fumbles, two
fumble recoveries, nine passes defensed and four interceptions.

"Danny Trevathan is everywhere," Mayock said, noting that scouts he talked to called him "one of
the toughest kids in the SEC.



























"Danny was the heart and soul of our team," Kentucky defensive coordinator Rick Minter said.

"Not just on our defense but on our team. He lived up to the reputation that preceded him -- or that
I found out about when I got here. He was a leader. He worked hard. He was a playmaker, a
producer.

"I was never disappointed in the way he brought i

"This kid makes a ton of sense for the Denver Broncos," NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said on
the network's draft broadcast.






















Below are a list of some Trevathan's accomplishments at
Leesburg High School:
