With the Broncos now tied for first in the AFC West, Broncos executive VP of football operations John Elway would not answer questions about Tim Tebow's long-term future with the team.

Elway said Monday on his Denver radio show that, "our future is right now." According to the Denver Post, Elway would not answer if current Tebow is part of the Broncos' long-term plans.

Tebow won his fifth consecutive game on Sunday, 35-32 over the Vikings. He threw for more than 200 yards for the first time all season and completed two-thirds of his passes (10 of 15), his highest completion percentage of the season. Tebow also threw two touchdowns against Minnesota.

"We saw him read out the two passes, the long passes — the touchdown to Demaryius (Thomas) in the end zone, and the long gain in the fourth quarter. He did a great job against cover-2," Elway said on 102.3 FM, according to the newspaper. "Offensively, especially in the second half, we came out and did some play action, which really helped us, and receivers did a heck of a job getting open, and Tim did a good job of getting them the ball."
