In addition to two Super Bowls, Elway was a nine-time Pro-Bowl winner, and was the NFL Most Valuable Player in 1987.Elway was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2004.There are a lot of things that need to be corrected, and we will continue to work on those things.""I'm one that really believes in standing for the flag," said Elway, who played for the Denver Broncos from 1983 to 1998."I understand the players and the way they felt from the comments that were made earlier in the week. Broncos general manager John Elway rolls on his time. All has been quiet on the franchise tag front this summer, unlike the previous two with DT and the Super Bowl 50 MVP, Miller, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a big contract decision lingering. At least it didn’t appear that way when Broncos president and CEO Joe Ellis met with the media on Jan. I’m optimistic we’ll get something done.” Here we are – more than nine months after the talks began (with training camp now just days away) – and Broncos Country is beginning to sweat. To be clear: A deal doesn’t have to be done by camp, but it’d be a bad sign if it wasn’t. 7 isn’t signed after the 2017 season – and it wasn’t supposed to take this long to fix that. That’s my plan,” Ellis said of extending Elway at the time. We’ve had some early conversations dating back to October and November and December and here we are in January and we’ll continue those.How the logistics are executed would be fascinating to watch, but the bottom line is Broncos Country doesn’t really care how it gets done – just get it done. And with options galore, the ball (like usual), is in the Duke of Denver’s court.(CNSNews.com) -- John Elway, a two-time Super Bowl quarterback champion and now the vice president of operations for the Denver Broncos, issued a statement about the NFL protests saying that it's time to "take the politics out of football," and that he is "one that believes in standing for the National Anthem" and that he also believes America "is the greatest country in the world." "I'm one that believes in standing for the National Anthem, and I've always believed that," said Elway in the statement, which he tweeted on Sept. "I believe this is the greatest country in the world.""We are very fortunate to live here," he said, "but it's obviously not perfect.
Elway said the team could also pursue a free agent such as Kirk Cousins or trade picks for someone such as Alex Smith.
As hard as it is for them, it's hard for us, too." The Broncos may decide to just use the No. Elway spent part of last week looking at prospects at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.
Some of those prospects included Wyoming's Josh Allen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, who won the Heisman Trophy.
The Broncos are clearly high on the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and want to see him up close and personal at the Senior Bowl, scheduled for January 27 in Mobile, Alabama.
Denver's staff will coach one of the two teams with Houston getting the other.
