Russ Brandon has resigned as managing partner and president of the Pegula sports empire.
Kim Pegula has taken over as president.
The move comes after Pegula Sports and Entertainment conducted an internal investigation into Brandon’s workplace behavior and allegations of personal misconduct, two sources told The Buffalo News.
We are not kicking him to the curb, Elway said, via Mike Klis of KUSA in Denver. He can still develop. When we drafted him two years ago, as I said, we knew it was going to take some time.
The coaching staff is running out of development time, however, as Elway has just one more year to decide whether to pick up the fifth-year option on Lynch’s rookie contract.
Entering his third season since the Broncos thwarted the Cowboys’ attempt to trade up for his services, the rocket-armed former Memphis star has no shot to unseat Case Keenum for Denver’s starting job. In fact, Lynch must hold off Chad Kelly the final pick in the 2017 NFL Draft just to earn the visor and clipboard this year.
In my final draft as Vikings GM, in 1999, there was intense discussion around pick No. 11 and whether to select the head coach’s pick, quarterback Daunte Culpepper, or the choice of our scouts, defensive end Jevon Kearse. The ultimate call was Culpepper since our starting quarterback, Randall Cunningham, was 36. Culpepper became a six-year starter and three-time Pro Bowler, so it turned out to be a solid pick.
All that happens while the president, GM Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys and head coach work the phones as they talk with teams about the possibility of moving up or down.
For example, after we selected Culpepper, I immediately got on the phone and tried to acquire another first-round pick so we could draft Kearse. But I couldn’t Cheap Orioles Jerseys get it done, and he was grabbed by Tennessee at No. 16.
