“I believe in hard work, the grind and not taking any shortcuts to achieve our goals. Drafting and developing players is the No. 1 priority. We will be aggressive—but not reckless—in adding talent to our roster. “
Aggressive, but not reckless.
#Broncos hire of #Vikings’ George Paton for GM is a win for that org. Paton was probably the most patient GM candidate since Chris Ballard went through years of interviews. Had it not been for the Shanahan/Lynch alignment #49ers wanted in 2017, Paton is running Frisco right now.
League source on new #Broncos GM George Paton:
"Literally one of the absolute best in the business. They could not have done better. He should have been a GM years ago. Phenomenal hire."
