Broncos star Xavier Coates will be plotting sweet revenge on his teammates after becoming the victim of some cruel downtime fun during the preseason.

The young Broncos star learned the hard way not to go to sleep around the boys this week after nodding off in a chair at the gym.

In an act of betrayal as old as time itself, Jamayne Isaako, Richard Kennar and Joe Ofahengaue startled the 24-year-old awake.

The video soon found its way to social media.
