ENGLEWOOD, Colo. | Hall of Famer John Elway has been summoned by the Denver Broncos for one more comeback, this time as the team's chief football executive.
The beloved quarterback who led the Broncos to five Super Bowls and back-to-back championships before retiring in 1998 returned to the team's Dove Valley headquarters Wednesday to begin restoring the franchise's tarnished image and bring back its winning ways.
Team owner Pat Bowlen said he expects Elway to lead the Broncos to more Super Bowls and joked this time, Elway can tell him: "This one's for Pat!"
Elway said he was thrilled to be part of the Broncos again, declaring: "My greatest asset is my competitiveness ... I will give it everything I can to return this team back to the way it was."
