Former Broncos Center Tom Nalen Wins Twitter With This Tweet

On Wednesday, the Denver Broncos signed veteran center Ryan Lilja to a one-year deal.  In Denver, Lilja is expected to compete for the starting center gig.

Then came the following tweet from former Broncos center Tom Nalen, who now co-hosts his own ESPN Denver radio show:
Twitter's over, Tom Nalen has won.

Nalen (42) retired in 2008 after starting in 188 games over a 15-year period for the Broncos, winning two Super Bowls (XXXII, XXXIII) and earning five Pro Bowl selections while with the team.  In May, the Broncos inducted Nalen into the team's Ring of Fame.
