ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — John Elway’s replacement as Broncos general manager will be Vikings executive George Paton.
Elway announced the hiring Wednesday. Denver hasn’t reached the playoffs since winning Super Bowl 50 five years ago.
Paton spent the last 14 seasons with Minnesota, including the last six as vice president of player personnel and assistant general manager. He’s been one of the hottest names on the GM circuit in recent years.
Elway called Paton “a proven evaluator who knows every detail of leading football operations.”
