DENVER (AP) - Hall of Famer John Elway is expected to rejoin the Denver Broncos as their chief football executive by midweek, according to a person with knowledge of the negotiations.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal to bring Elway back to the franchise hasn't been completed.
Team spokesman Patrick Smyth said reports that the team has already reached an agreement with Elway were premature.
The Broncos have won just one playoff game since Elway retired in 1999 following his second straight Super Bowl title and haven't reached the postseason in five years.
