It is being reported that the Broncos have released LB Al Wilson.
Wilson plans to hold a news conference at his agent's office in Cherry Creek at 2 p.m. Friday. It can be seen live on cbs4denver.com.
Wilson was the subject of attempted trades by the Broncos in recent weeks. One deal with the New York Giants fell apart after Wilson failed a physical.
The team has decided to release Wilson because of his impact on the salary cap and his injury last season, according to Lombardi.
Wilson suffered a neck injury late last season and was carried off the field on a stretcher. He returned to play in the following games.
Wilson was the Broncos' 1st round draft pick in 1999 and was the team's defensive captain.
