The Denver Broncos do not plan on dealing any players amid their underwhelming start to the 2019 season, according to general manager John Elway.

Having kicked the year off with a 1-4 record, Elway denied the team intends to trade any of their top players — including Von Miller, Emmanuel Sanders, and Chris Harris — for draft assets with the deadline fast approaching.

"You guys bring up all those names - I have not brought up any names," Elway told reporters.

"We're trying to win football games, so no one on our side is on the trading block. We're going to try to continue to win football games."

Elway, a former Denver quarterback, has been GM since 2011, but success has waned since they won Super Bowl 50 in 2016.

The Broncos have missed the postseason for three consecutive years, going 20-28 in that stretch, and it appears they will make it four.

Nevertheless, their bid to recover from a slow start in 2019 continues when they host the Tennessee Titans (2-3) on Sunday.
