The Denver Broncos have not yet decided that the next general manager will lead the team into the next era. After the Mustang resigned from John Elway, he gave up his position at General Motors and held a “senior” position at the front desk. The Mustangs have conducted five interviews for job opportunities.
One candidate has been evacuated after being interviewed-Dave Ziegler of New England, leaving Brian Stark (Brian Stark) internal options, three external competitors competing This job-started with George Payton of Minnesota, Terry Fontenot of New Orleans and Champion Kelly of Chicago. Although Payton sits closest to the “big chairman,”
Chris joined driver At 104.3 fan Provide the latest information on Monday night to understand the Broncos’ pursuit of Elway’s successor. In the selection topics discussed in Klis’s dialogue with hosts Darren McKee and Tyler Polumbus, each GM candidate spoke to Elway, CEO Joe Ellis, head coach Vic Fangio, and chief communications officer Patrick Smyth during interviews Drew Lock’s views are all relative.
It turns out that each candidate has a different view on the direction of the Broncos’ quarterback landing job. Klis defended himself, saying that he was not “everything has a secret”, he was not sure what “discussion” was, and in the next shot, he dropped the gold nugget.
Chris said to McGee and Pollenbus: “I don’t know all this very well, I do know that someone is discussing it. From “If you have a chance to get a top quarterback, you must try” to “No one can Free agent or [via] The fair is better than Drew Lock, [so] You must select him from the draft” to “give him more time. You have already spent a lot of time.” You’d better be with him. If he slips, let us provide him with quality veteran backup. “I’m not sure who agrees with whom.”

All in all, there are three views, but two of them will make Lock a starter under different conditions. A candidate will go all out to earn a “top” QB in the NFL draft. The other candidate will insist on using Lock as The Guy in 2021, mainly because the team has already invested in him and lack of viable options in the free agency and trade markets, while the last guy insists on using Lock But hedging him back by signing a qualified veteran substitute.
We have no way of knowing which candidate provided which point of view, but the point is these three options, only one person will expect the draft to be upgraded/replaced with Lock immediately. Fans will undoubtedly try to theoretically guess which candidate said what, but for now, only a few people know the answer-the candidate himself and the Mustang Employment Committee. Chris probably knew what the candidate said, but he wouldn’t throw those beans on the airwaves.
As the president of football operations, Elway will want to “consult” all the “significant” decisions made by the next General Motors. What is “big”?Chris (Klis) provided more insights in a wonderful conversation with him driver.
Clays told McGee and Pollenbus, “If you give up Drew Rock and bring in Matthew Stafford, then the quarterback’s decision will be’significant’.” “John won’t be right. This makes the final decision. He will just say:’Look, I know you want Stafford. I personally think that Drew Rock, if you give him more time, it may be beneficial to the Broncos. This That’s why I like Drew Lock. He has been for two years [in] But he really only has one year to develop, because he missed the rookie due to injury, and missed his sophomore year because of the absence of OTA and preseason. Therefore, he might make this argument. Otherwise, he will go aside. I don’t think he will be involved in Justin Simmons. I don’t think he will be involved in von Miller. ”
According to Klis, among these GM candidates, another common theme is the priority of getting Pro Bowl safety officer Justin Simmons to resign. Although the Mustangs may not want to hear about this, none of the candidates seems willing to bring von Miller back to the final year of his contract for the current $17.5 million. However, the first step will be to try to negotiate a reorganization- However, it may seem so.
“When all these general managers were interviewed, almost everyone tried to say:’Try to find Justin Simmons-Justin Simmons must be given priority to let him come back.” Figure out how to get Justin Simmons back,” Chris Say driver. “Feng said,’Try to bring him back-see if we can sign a new contract.’ This type of transaction. You can’t bring him back for 18 dollars (million dollars). But I think that It’s beautiful what GM thinks of these two players.”
These are all major decisions that the new general manager of Mustang will stare at the barrel when he is hired. Locke, Simmons and Miller. For now, Parton seems to be the easiest person to get the job, but as Klis said on Monday, when he found the right person for his first chance at General Motors, he was very “Funny”.
If an agreement is reached, Payton and Kelly can start the game immediately, and the Broncos will have to wait for Fonteno until the Saints retires from the playoffs or until after the Super Bowl, depending on who comes first. Klis raised the possibility that the Broncos would ideally regard Kelly as “second-in-command,” rather than a true genetically modified employee, which opened up a whole new can of worms.
However, keep in mind that the Broncos are not only filling Elway’s previous general manager position-they also want to replace Matt Russell and hire a new head of player personnel. That would require the recruitment of two new employees in the front office. If Parton proves to be too expensive or too picky, and the Saints continue to succeed in the playoffs, then Chris may foresee the second wave of GM doves in Pigeon Forge.
“If they don’t get Parton and Fonteno is not in the playoffs and they can’t get him for a while, they hope the champion may be second, but maybe not the first person, that’s what I think they It can be opened for backup,” Klis told McKee and Polumbus.
If the second wave occurs, look out for Rick Smith of the former Houston Texan of General Motors and Thomas Dimitrov of the former General Motors of Falcon. Both have GM experience, and Smith has a working relationship with the Broncos in the Bison Adventure.
