Denver Fires General Manager Brian Xanders

The Broncos have axed general manager Brian Xanders, this coming after a Monday morning meeting with boss John Elway.

“It was tough because I have a great deal of respect for Brian as a football man but also as a person,” Elway said. “Even more so as a person. He was very helpful to me in this first year getting acclimated back to the NFL. I owe him a lot. Just from the conversation we had, we just thought for his career and for the Broncos we felt that now was the best time to go a different way.”

The 41-year-old Xanders was with the Falcons in a number of roles before be came to the Broncos as the assistant general manager by then-coach-football operations boss Mike Shanahan after the 2008 NFL Draft.

He was promoted to GM by Josh McDaniels, a position he held until Monday. Xanders has one year left on his contract.
