ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - John Elway is barely into his first weekend as the Denver Broncos' new chief of football operations and already he's in damage control mode.
Elway took to his Twitter account Saturday to deny speculation he would trade quarterback Tim Tebow.
The fuss started when Peter King strongly implied on NBC that Elway might trade Tebow to the team that hires former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels as offensive coordinator.
Elway tweeted: "Any speculation that the Denver Broncos are considering moving Tim is completely false."
Elway has said on several occasions since being hired as the Broncos' new vice president of football operations on Wednesday that Tebow is a good football player, but he has to become a good quarterback.
