The Denver Broncos have announced today that they will extend John Elway's contract for a further three years.

Elway, who won two Super Bowls as quarterback for the Broncos has been serving as executive vice president of football operations but will now have general manager added to his title.

Ian Rapoport reports that Broncos head coach, John Fox could also be in line for a contract extension this season.

In a tweet earlier today, Rapoport said: "#Broncos announce a 3-year extension for executive VP of Football operations @johnelway, add GM to his title. John Fox extension is next."

Elway was hired by the Broncos in 2011 and oversaw their Super Bowl defeat to the Seattle Seahawks this season. In the past two seasons Elway had complete control of football operations and the team made the playoffs on both occasions through the play of quarterback, Peyton Manning.

John Fox, who is 59 has been the head coach of the Broncos since 2011 and despite suffering from a heart related illness earlier this season, the team still led the league in offense.

Broncos president, Joe Ellis announced the deal: 

“Our organization is extremely pleased with the work John Elway has done in his three years since rejoining the Broncos,” Ellis said. “He has demonstrated great vision and leadership in his role, assembling a championship-caliber team and positioning it for sustained success.
