John Elway Called Peyton Manning Before Signing Wes Welker

John Elway may be the Broncos top executive, but Peyton Manning is the teams general, and with that Elway consulted with and made sure Manning was on board before going all in on Wes Welker according to the Denver Post.

“I asked Peyton about it yesterday to make sure he was on board,’’ Elway said.

Welker will take slot receiver Brandon Stokley’s position, so it’s definitely bitter-sweet for Manning, considering Stokley is the reason Manning ended up in Denver.
