Three days before the start of training camp, Broncos’ general manager and executive vice president of football operations John Elway agreed to a five-year contract, keeping him control of the team’s football decisions through at least 2021, Nicki Jhabvala of Denver Post reports.

“I appreciate the trust and confidence that (CEO and president) Joe (Ellis) has shown in me,” Elway said via the team’s website. “Pat Bowlen has always put outstanding leadership in place, and I’m grateful for the support Joe gives us to compete for championships each and every year. “This is a special place, and the Broncos are home to me. While there’s still a lot of work to be done, I’m excited about the future of this team and this organization.”

“During these last six seasons, John’s clearly established himself as one of the best general managers in all of sports. He’s demonstrated impressive football instincts, a strong business acumen and a consistent ability to build competitive teams,” Ellis said. “There’s no doubt John means a great deal to the Broncos, our fans and the entire community. It was important for us to reach this long-term agreement, and we’re all excited to now turn our full attention toward the 2017 season.”
