NFL Legend John Elway Urges Senate To Confirm Gorsuch

Denver Broncos General Manager and former NFL Quarterback John Elway threw his support behind United States Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch Monday.

“It is with my highest recommendation that I support Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the United States Supreme Court,” the three-time Superbowl champion said in a letter posted to Twitter Monday morning.

Elway praised Gorsuch for possessing tremendous intelligence, character and fairness. “His credentials, integrity and sound moral compass are major reasons why he’s already received so much bipartisan support for his nomination,” Elway continued.

Gorsuch, whose confirmation hearing to the nation’s highest court began Monday morning, can now count on the support of one of the NFL’s most prolific icons.

Gorsuch is a big fan of the Denver Broncos, something not lost on Elway. “Neil is a big Denver Broncos fan, and I can tell you that I’m a big fan of his,” he said, which may explain Elway’s decision to make the endorsement.

“I look forward to having Neil Gorsuch, one of our own from the great state of Colorado, as the next Supreme Court Justice,” Elway concluded.

Elway focuses on current events, but Denver Broncos fans remain on Romo-watch as rumors swirl surrounding the quarterback’s position.
