Gary Kubiak has said Okoye has had the best off season this year. He seems to be flying under the radar so far this year, but I am stoked about this kid. I know he's only been here one year, but comparing him to a future hall of famer, Warren Sapp, there is plenty of reason to be excited about his potential.
Warren Sapp's rookie year:
3 sacks, 17 tackles, 10 assists, 1 FF, 1 int., 1 TD

granted he only started 8 games, but he played in all 16.
Amobi Okoye's rookie season:
5.5 sacks, 23 tackles, 9 assists

He compared very favorable to Sapp when he was just 20 years old and clearly hit a wall. I can't wait to se wait to see what's in store for his career.

That would be awesome. Manning and Vince Young might have to get an earlier retirement if your statement holds true.
