DENVER (CBS4) – Last year was a big one on and off the field for Broncos players Eric Decker and Wesley Woodyard.
During the Broncos excellent season Decker played a key role in offensive game plan and Woodyard was a huge part of the defensive game plan. Now both players are making plans for weddings in 2013.
Well … actually, it’s their fiancees who are really doing most of the planning.
“Wesley hasn’t been involved in any part except for the food tasting,” Woodyard’s fiancee Veronica Whitehead told CBS4’s Kathy Lee.
Whitehead said she has enjoyed being Woodyard’s “backbone” during this exciting season. The two met in Miami.
“Wes was there during the offseason. He went to a yacht party and they actually weren’t invited, so they got kicked off the boat,” Whitehead said.
His friend then noticed Whitehead, who was with some friends.
“Wes comes over there and we ended up talking the whole time and from that day forward we’ve been together ever since.”
James and Decker met through a mutual friend about two years ago.
“Someone just set us up over the phone and he flew out to Nashville and that was it,” James said.
Both women say they have to scale back everything that they’re doing during the football season to make sure they are with their fiances during the rare moments when they aren’t practicing, watching film, lifting weights or eating and sleeping.
