After the Broncos announced Wednesday that Minnesota's George Paton will be their next general manager, the move gained rave reviews from his colleagues, NFL reporters and former NFL players.
One of the people who commented was former NFL quarterback Sage Rosenfels, who has some experience around the new GM. In 2002, Paton helped the Dolphins acquire Rosenfels in a trade from Washington.
"George Paton is an absolute stud," Rosenfels wrote.

Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer also approved of the hire and noted that even before it was announced, he thought Paton was the top candidate for the job. "Paton, to me, is prepared to be a GM the way Chris Ballard was before making the jump from Kansas City to Indianapolis four years ago," Breer wrote.
