Mike Adams plans to celebrate in a unique style in the Denver Broncos take home the Super Bowl next summer.

Speaking to the Denver Post, he said: “If we win the Super Bowl, I'm going to keep my helmet and pads on, and I'm walking home."

But don't worry, Adams isn't planning on embarking on the 1700 mile journey back to the Broncos' Sports Authority Field at Mile High stadium.

No, luckily for Adams, the journey back to his home in Paterson, New Jersey is little over 12 miles. Not exactly a small stroll but at least it'll be possible for the safety to follow through on his claim.

The 10-year NFL veteran plans to return to the town many told him he would struggle to break free from. He left as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware but has now proved all his doubters wrong.

Of Paterson, Adams said: “It can be almost like cancer, and I say that because the negativity in that place can be like a snowball rolling down hill.”

Adams grew up without knowing his father and lost his mother to Ovarian cancer in 2004. But despite the heartache, as a Super Bowl winner, Adams will be happy to return to his hometown.

“After I get to the IHOP on Route 3, I'll start hitchhiking,” Adams joked. “But they'd probably just think I'm some crazy person.”
