The Denver Broncos are shaking things up. Not only does the team have a new coaching staff and a trio of quarterbacks, but Denver also announced a variety of changes to the scouting department on Wednesday.
According to a release from the organization, Broncos general manager John Elway has hired Frantzy Jourdain to be the southeast area scout. Jourdain is a 16-year NFL veteran and spent the last three years with the Houston Texans.
Along with the hiring of Jourdain, 13-year Broncos veteran, Eugene Armstrong, will transition to southwest area scout.
Additionally, Eddie Simpkins has been hired as a scouting assistant. Simpkins previously was a player personnel intern with the Broncos, and worked as a recruiting assistant at Oklahoma State.
Finally, Rob Patton and Deon Randall have each been promoted to college/pro scouts as well.
