Happy 50th Birthday to John Elway!
Instead of us giving him a present, Elway has given us a gift. After a weekend of playing golf with Josh McDaniels, Elway has decided to help the Broncos from the sidelines.
Elway will attend some training camp practices and advise the younger players who now sport the Orange and Blue that Elway was once the poster boy for. He will also play a role in promoting the Broncos game in London.
“The Broncos and Elway have agreed that the Hall of Fame quarterback will be an asset with the team’s business operations in “marketing initiatives,” particularly in advance of the team’s game in London, and will observe practices and consult with McDaniels on football matters.” (Denver Post)
In the years following retirement, Elway put his foot in the business world and has been highly successful. He had not found the right time to jump back into the Broncos organization because of a tiff with Mike Shanahan. Now that McDaniels is in his second year, Elway has bonded with the new coach and has reestablished ties with owner, Pat Bowlen.
Could this born-again partnership between the Broncos and Elway inject some of the previous success the team had in the late 90’s to this season?
