There are things that just seem meant to be, and so it is with the return of Denver Broncos Hall of Famer and legend, with the latter transcendent over the former term, to the team which he led into national dominance for 16 seasons.
He came to the Broncos as a great player and truly was one of those athletes who actually met and exceeded expectations. The mantle of greatness and the positive association with the Broncos, Bronco Nation and the entire Rocky Mountain time zone can never be taken away from John Elway.
As the team moves into a new era it is completely fitting that John head the football operations of this franchise.
No one has been more vital, and no one has ever been more competitive.
