FILE - In this Feb. 9, 2010, file photo, retired Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway prepares to throw a football to Denver Nuggets mascot Rocky the Mountain Lion in the third quarter of the Nuggets' 127-91 victory over the Dallas Mavericks in an NBA basketball game in Denver. A person with knowledge of the negotiations says Hall of Famer Elway is expected to rejoin the Denver Broncos as their chief football executive by midweek. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Sunday, Jan. 2, 2010 on condition of anonymity because the deal to bring Elway back to the franchise hasn't been completed. less
