Quote:
The Broncos officially announced the signing of John Elway to a new five-year contract through 2021.

“We’re pleased to reach an agreement on a five-year contract with John to continue leading our football operations,” president and CEO Joe Ellis said, via the team press release. “During these last six seasons, John’s clearly established himself as one of the best general managers in all of sports. He’s demonstrated impressive football instincts, a strong business acumen and a consistent ability to build competitive teams.


Good move locking up one of the better GM's in the league.

Especially when you realize he has 22 combined years being a player/GM on the Broncos and he has more Superbowl wins (3) than losing seasons (2) in that time Wink

One of the best GM's in the game. Good on Denver for locking him up.

I'm not convinced Elway is some kind of great GM, but wise move to lock him up.

Based on what? Genuinely curious because the vast consensus is that he's one of the better GMs in the game.

Look at his drafting history the past 5 seasons and you'll figure out why. He's had some hits but more often than not....Misses.

No kidding. When you put together a SB-winning squad with the worst starting QB in the league that year, you've more than done your job.

Good move to lock him up.

I see a lot of starters, good rotational guys, All-Pros and some pro bowlers in there. I dont know what your talking about that he cant draft. Outside of 2013, he had gotten multiple players who have started or received significant playing time and made plays.

I didn't say he can't draft but he's obviously had some misses. Not counting the 2016 or 2017 classes since it's too early, He's made up for the missed draft picks by picking up studs in FA though.
