John Elway Steps Down from Consulting Position with the Denver Broncos

Recently, Elway chose to step down from his consulting position, which he had held for the past year. He and CEO Greg Penner had a discussion during the offseason about his position, as his contract was only for one year. Rather than signing a new contract, Elway decided to amicably step away from his role. However, he assured Penner and GM George Paton that he will continue to be available as a resource in the future. Elway said this regarding the matter,

“I’ve enjoyed the relationship with the Broncos for a long, long time,’’ Elway told sources. “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.’’

Elway’s participation with the organization will not in any way come to an end as a result of this development. The only difference is that he won’t have a proper work title with the Broncos.

“I’ve been with the Denver Broncos for so long that it was nice to have some sort of connection which is what I wanted,” Elway continued. “I didn’t want an obligation. I’m getting a little older, I want to be able to do some things I haven’t done. I’m ready to have a flexible schedule. If there’s something I can help them with I’d do that.”
