BREAKING: John Elway No Longer A Part Of Denver Broncos Front Office

Denver Broncos legend John Elway’s time with the franchise is over, as his consulting contract ended and will not be renewed.

Elway confirmed his departure to 9News in Denver on Tuesday, saying the new ownership of the team puts the Broncos “in good hands.” His contract as a consultant expired on the first day of the new league year, March 15.

Elway was the Broncos’ general manager and executive vice president of football operations from 2011 to 2021. The Broncos hired George Paton as general manager in 2021, and Elway transitioned to a consultant role.

“I’ve enjoyed the relationship with the Broncos for a long, long time,” Elway told 9News. “I told Greg I’d be happy to be a resource for him and help in any way that I can. I just wanted the flexibility. They’re in great hands. I still plan on being around to watch and be a resource for Greg or George, if I can.”

The move closes a storied chapter for Elway and the Broncos. He won three Super Bowls during his 28 years with the franchise — two titles as a quarterback and another as a GM — and is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
