JERSEY CITY, N.J., Jan. 27 (UPI) -- A New Jersey mayor welcoming the Denver Broncos to town for the Super Bowl was asked to get out of the way so John Elway could "meet the mayor."

The Denver Post reported the Broncos arrived at the Hyatt Regency in Jersey City Sunday night and John Elway, head of the team's football operations, was approached by a man who held out a piece of paper and asked for Elway's signature.

Patrick Smyth, the Broncos' media relations director, stepped in and told the man Elway did not have time to meet with fans.

"Sir," Smyth said. "He has to keep moving. He has to meet the mayor of Jersey City."

The man replied by revealing himself as Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop.

"I am the mayor of Jersey City," Fulop said. "I have here a welcoming proclamation on behalf of Jersey City."

Elway laughed and signed the proclamation, the Post said.
