The ex-wife of the biggest name in Denver football history is trying to unload her Belcaro mansion.
Janet Elway, who was married to former Broncos quarterback and John Elway — now the team’s general manager — from 1984 to 2003, has put her seven-bedroom home at 900 S. Steele St. on the market for $4.5 million.
Janet was married to John for almost all of his 16-year Hall of Fame career with the Broncos, during which he led the team to six AFC Championship Games and five Super Bowls, winning two. The couple separated in 2002 — three years after Elway retired — and divorced a year later.
In 2005, Janet founded Janet’s Camp, a yearly camp-themed benefit for the YMCA of Metropolitan Denver. The fundraiser helps send kids from low-income, inner-city families to summer day camp, and had raised $1.5 million as of 2015.
900 S. Steele St. is the highest-priced home listing in the Belcaro neighborhood, according to REColorado.
