The Denver Broncos have extended Executive Vice President John Elway's contract for three years and added general manager to his title.
The Broncos have gone 37-17 since Elway rejoined the team in 2011 and are coming off an AFC Championship but a 43-8 blowout to Seattle in the Super Bowl.
Elway guided the Broncos to five Super Bowls during his Hall of Fame playing career, winning his last two before retiring in 1999.
When he returned to the Broncos after a 4-12 season in 2010, Elway hired coach John Fox, who has led Denver to three straight AFC West titles.
Elway has hit the jackpot in free agency, first with Peyton Manning in 2012 and last year with Louis Vasquez and Wes Welker among others.
