"Life's too short to rebuild in the NFL," Denver Broncos GM John Elway said Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine.
In other words, Elway doesn't seem all that interested in taking his time to rebuild the Broncos back into a winner.
Obviously, he won't come out and say what the plan is for this offseason. But it's pretty clear that changes are a matter of when they come, not if.
The Broncos need to upgrade the quarterback position. Elway said past failures do not deter him in trying to get that done.
"I'm not done swinging and missing. Misses don't bother me. We have to figure out a way to get it right. That's what we're working on."
Reading between the lines, if the Broncos can sign a veteran quarterback, they could very well be in the martet to trade their fifth overall pick.
"We’ll be open for business on the fifth pick depending on how things fall," Elway said.
Elway addressed a wide range of topics when he spoke with Matt McChesney and Brandon Krisztal on Orange and Blue 760, national media and Denver media at the Combine.
