Broncos | Once Tried to Trade Elway
While discussing the status of current Baltimore Ravens QB Kyle Boller, Jim Fassel, who works as the Ravens senior consultant and at one time served as the head coach of the New York Giants, said the Denver Broncos attempted to trade QB John Elway after his second season in the NFL, reports Adam H. Beasley of BaltimoreRavens.com. "There have been a lot of mistakes in this league," said Fassel. "Steve Young, a young quarterback in Tampa Bay, and they ran him out of town. 'He's no-good, can't play in this league.' Now he's a Hall of Famer with the 49ers. Brett Favre was traded away from Atlanta. They had given up on him. Shipped him off to Green Bay. John Elway – nobody knows this – but they tried to trade him after his second year. Jim Plunkett – ran out of New England, takes Oakland to the Super Bowl."
