      I am surprised this news isn't making as big of a wave in Broncos Country as it should be. Granted, the progression of the NFL has made a historic move like this inevitable for awhile. Kleine started out as an intern in 2013 and eight years later she is in charge of football operations and basically an assistant GM. That's a meteoric rise if I've ever seen one-- and I'm sure glad it's based off of merit (by all accounts) rather than cronyism (*cough* Easterby *cough*). I'm excited to see what Paton and Kleine can do here in Denver. This certainly feels like a shift from the Elway-Russell culture.

          Are there draft picks in play for hiring women to executive positions? I’m not trying to belittle the accomplishment, I’m just genuinely curious.

            Welcome to the Broncos. Hope the addition helps build and run a better franchise.

            I can appreciate the accomplishment and the milestone. But really have no clue what she is going to do, or how well she will do it. Seems like a solid hire as Paton picks his people to best make his job easier. Trust her hire as I did his draft and free agent decisions.

            Does anyone know who she is replacing? Or what kind of job they did? Or if this is a newly announced position of a long standing Elway position with a new fresh mind?

            Wish her well. Hope she is a savant GM prospect that helps turn the Broncos into perennial winners for years to come.

                It would seem that Paton thinks she has high value and obvious intelligence including NFL organizational skills to improve the Broncos direction and achieve team goals.

                  I don’t think there are draft picks involved but if there are, they would go to the Vikings.

                    That's for trades.....This is not a trade. The NFL has granted draft picks for hiring minority's. I think as a women, the thought is...... she is a minority ?

                        I know what the rules are for hiring minorities. Even if she qualifies, which I don’t think is the case since she wasn’t hired to be a GM, it would be the Vikings receiving two third round picks.

                          I like the idea of Paton putting his own people in the FO.
