John Elway calls the shots in Denver. Molding the team in his image, Elway made quite the splash last off-season when he signed future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning to a deal that instantly made the Broncos Super Bowl contenders. With the addition of Wes Welker yesterday, the Broncos pulled themselves that much closer to a championship.

But per the Denver Post, Elway wanted the opinion of his star quarterback before he went after Welker.

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

When one person is that extremely important to your franchise I guess it makes sense to check and see if they would like a potential move.

Seeing as how Welker will be catching passes from Manning, Peyton’s feelings on the addition needed to be taken into account.
