    Tom Heckert leaves Broncos to focus on his health
    Posted by Charean Williams on July 2, 2018, 7:54 PM EDT

    Longtime NFL executive Tom Heckert has left the Broncos to focus on his health, Mike Klis of Denver’s 9News reports.

    The senior personnel advisor’s contract expired, leaving Gary Kubiak alone in that role.


    “I’m going to take some time off and not work anywhere for a little while,’’ Heckert told Klis. “The Broncos have been great. They have gone above and beyond during my time there with my health stuff. I’m getting treatment and overall I am doing well.’’

    Doctors diagnosed Heckert with a treatable blood disorder in early 2016.

    Heckert has spent 27 years in the NFL, including General Manager stints with the Eagles from 2006-09 and Browns from 2010-12. In 2013, he joined the Broncos as director of player personnel.

    He spent the past two seasons as senior personnel advisor.

    After his rough start here in Denver with his "legal" issues, all I can say is good luck, and I'm glad Kubiak now has that job.

      At first I thought you were confused and were thinking of Matt Russell. Didn't realize we had multiple DUIs on the personnel side. Doh.

        And the Blood Alcohol Level's of both Russell and Heckert would indicate severe problems with drinking, i.e. "alcoholism". It's been 4 or 5 years since they both received DUIs, so let's hope they both got help. No problem with Kubiak on that front.
