Broncos signed VP of Football Operations John Elway to a three-year extension and added general manager to his title.
He already had "final say" over the organization, but the GM title locks that in. Under Elway, the Broncos have reached the playoffs in three straight seasons, including 2011 with Tim Tebow at quarterback. Elway inherited a team that finished 4-12 under Josh McDaniels in 2010. Elway has hit homerun after homerun in free agency (Peyton Manning, Louis Vasquez, Terrance Knighton, Wes Welker, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie) while also excelling in the draft (Sylvester Williams, Montee Ball, Derek Wolfe, Malik Jackson, Danny Trevathan, Von Miller, Julius Thomas). He's now under contract through 2017.
