Broncos promote Ray Jackson to Vice President of Player Development


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos continue to reshape their front office.

Denver has promoted Ray Jackson to Vice President of Player Development, General Manager George Paton announced Tuesday.

Jackson has served as the Broncos' Director of Player Development since 2015 and is entering his 19th season in the NFL in a player development role.

He is responsible for the team's off-field training and educating players through club and league initiatives. Jackson also runs the Broncos' rookie transition program and facilitates a number of other programs to help players be at their best on and off the field.

Jackson previously served as the director of player development in Pittsburgh (2005-14) and the player development coordinator (2002-04) in Cleveland.

Jackson's first season with the Broncos culminated in a Super Bowl 50 win, and he also earned two other Super Bowl titles while with the Steelers.

Before transitioning to a player development role, Jackson played six seasons in the NFL. Originally selected by the Bills in the fifth round of the 1996 NFL Draft, Jackson spent three seasons at cornerback in Buffalo and another three seasons in Cleveland.

Jackson attended Montbello High School in Denver and is in the Colorado State University Hall of Fame. Jackson is the all-time interception leader (20) at CSU.

The move to promote Jackson is the most recent in a series of moves. Paton previously hired Kelly Kleine as Executive Director of Football Operations/Special Advisor to the General Manager, Roman Phifer as Senior Personnel Executive and Sae Woon Jo as Western National Scout. Paton also promoted Darren Mougey to Director of Player Personnel.
