The Denver Broncos have finalized a six-year agreement with Minnesota Vikings’ front office executive to be their new general manager, sources told Mike Klis of 9 NEWS in Denver.

Paton, 51, will succeed John Elway as the man in charge of constructing the Broncos’ 53-man roster through trades, free-agent signings, draft picks, waiver claims and managing the team’s payroll.

For the past 14 years, Paton served as the right-hand man of Vikings’ general manager Rick Spielman. They had six playoff appearances and two NFC Championship Game appearances in those 14 years but never reached the Super Bowl.

Elway had been the Broncos’ GM the past 10 years and while he had five AFC West titles in his first five years with two Super Bowl appearances and a Super Bowl 50 title, his teams have fallen into a historic, four-year slump in which it posted a 23-41 record.
