Shanahan's Can of Worms
Just when you think the Broncos offseason can't get any crazier...The Broncos make an attempt to deal Al Wilson for salary cap purposes and he reportedly fails the physical. Now what are the Bronx to do? They've just tried to deal the heart and soul of their defense to no avail which brings all kinds of ripple effects throughout the team. Are they left to simply release him and try to deal with the loss of a team leader or will they now try to find another way to jettison some other salaries on the team? But what then do you do with a player who has failed a physical with another team? And if it is a neck problem which possibly occured last season during that very scary moment we all held our breath through then what do you do? The resolution to this whole thing is sure to shake up a team that needs stability (especially veteran leadership) in the midst of the two team tragedies that have effected the whole franchise.
This could be one of those moves we look back on as a big mistake at a very bad time.
