Horse Tracks 6/18/09 - Wiegmann gets paid; Boss, we hardly knew ye


DB - Wiegmann, Broncos Agree to Contract Extension
Casey Wiegmann received an extra year on a renegotiated contract; financial terms were not disclosed. Wiegmann of course, was brought in last year to be a backup and was paid accordingly. Everyone seems to be happy with the deal.

DP - Bailey tandem takes hit with Boss' release
LB Boss Bailey was released yesterday; he made $7.15 million to play in 6 games as a Bronco. Also, BMarsh will be running his football camp today in Aurora.

DP - Krieger: Marshall deserves new deal
Krieger makes the case for BMarsh to get paid in Denver. Interestingly, part of his argument is the assumption that a new deal would have provisions for his off-field issues. Not so sure about that one, Dave...who's to say BMarsh or the NFLPA would go for that?

DP - Wiegmann's payoff built by patience
According to LJones, Wiegmann could receive $4.7 million over the next two years in his new deal, but no word on how much is guaranteed. Apparently, Wiegmann left minicamp thinking retirement was upon him without a new contract; but he still showed up to work out and Josh McDaniels commended his handling of the situation.

DB - Sounds from Minicamp - Broncos TV
Some video clips from minicamp; nothing earth-shattering, but still nice to see the guys in action (sort of).
