John Elway is beloved in Denver as the quarterback who led the Broncos to two Super Bowl wins and five of their six appearances in franchise history.
Now, Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post says Elway, who currently runs the football operations as executive vice president, could end up succeeding Pat Bowlen as the team's owner.
The columnist's statement comes from a mailbag question from a reader asking if Elway is on the hot seat if the Broncos don't win big. Kiszla says that is not the case, and that John Fox would probably pay the price for any Broncos' shortcomings.
