What Does The "C" Patch Stand For On Super Bowl Jerseys For Carolina, Denver?

Super Bowl 50 - being played between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos - will see players wearing a number of interesting patches. Some were created specifically for the event. Others have been worn all season long. If you're wondering about the "C" you see on some star's jerseys? Well here's the answer.

The "C" patch is actually a patch given to team captains - a tradition that started back in 2007. The number of stars included? That signifies how many years they've been named a captain. So Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, for example, has been named a captain three years. Three of the four stars are colored in.
