Broncos hire ex-Vikings exec Paton as Elway's GM successor

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) John Elway's hand-picked successor as Broncos general manager is Vikings executive George Paton.

Elway announced the hiring Wednesday, a day after Paton visited the team's state-of-the-art headquarters where the Super Bowl 50 trophy looks like a tribute to a bygone era with the franchise mired in a five-year playoff drought.

Paton, who agreed to a six-year contract, spent the last 14 seasons working alongside Vikings GM Rick Spielman in Minnesota, including the last six as assistant general manager. Since 2018, he also served as the team's vice president of player personnel.
