Broncos Not Likely To Cut Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders

Published

on

The Denver Broncos should have a bust offseason ahead of them and, for some time, many have thought that the Broncos would part ways with receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders for cap reasons.

Now, it appears that Broncos general manager John Elway is considering keeping both veteran wideouts as the team searches for a top quarterback this offseason, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

Currently, Denver has about $27M in cap space, which is the 16th most in the NFL, but could significantly increase space by releasing cornerback Aqib Talib, offensive tackle Menelik Watson and running back CJ Anderson.

Those moves would create more than $40M in cap space.

Thomas has 2 years left on his deal and is set to make $12M in 2018. Releasing Sanders would save $5.563M but incur a penalty of $5.375M, which makes it very likely that he stays on board with the team.

Steelers’ Antonio Brown Misses Practice, Agent Denies Trade Request

Published

on

Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver Antonio Brown was a no-show for practice on Monday, fueling trade speculation after an interesting exchange on Twitter with a former team employee, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette and Gerry Dulac.

Brown responded to the former employee’s belief that Brown would not be an elite receiver without the help of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger but tweeting “Trade me let’s find out”.

While the absence raises eyebrows, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said that Brown has not requested a trade.

Additionally, Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus released the following statement shutting down any rumors that Brown has requested a trade, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“The tweet [on Monday] was not in reference to anything other than Antonio responding to a person he knows. It was not directed towards a trade, or wanting to be trading. Any idea he was asking for a trade is not accurate, Antonio had a personal matter. I talked to the team about it. His issue was unrelated to the tweet or his relationship with the team. Third, AB has an incredible drive to win. He just wants to win. That’s all that that is, that’s not anything more than him encouraging his coaches and teammates to win. And that’s what his entire focus is on. Any notion, any speculation otherwise, can be put to bed. This is a non-story that has been blown out of proportion. We can end this right here and now.”
