Broncos reach settlement with Josh McDaniels

With John Elway taking over in Denver this week, the Broncos officially said goodbye to their last savior.

The Denver Post writes that the team has reached a termination settlement with former head coach Josh McDaniels.  Adam Schefter first reported the news last week.

This news should free up McDaniels to find a job elsewhere, likely as an offensive coordinator.  There has been speculation from multiple reports that McDaniels could end up in Kansas City.

The Todd Haley-McDaniels HandshakeGate may not be that big a deal, but Haley being an offensive coach seems like a bigger issue.   Charlie Weis is reportedly leaving for Florida in large part because he didn’t have autonomy to run the Chiefs offense.
