Congrats to coach Del Rio.. The Raiders got better— Brandon Marshall (@BMarshh54) January 14, 2015
If the report is true. The Raiders are getting a great damn coach. He will revive that locker room and organization.— Terrance Knighton (@MrKnighton2u) January 14, 2015
The raiders just got better! #BelieveThat— Omar C. Bolden (@Os_Island) January 14, 2015
Of note, all three of the players are defenders, and two of those players will be free agents this summer (Omar Bolden will be in the final year of his contract).
Marshall's contract is up, but he said earlier this week that he expects to return in 2015. He was a childhood Broncos fan, and he wants to stay in Denver.
With that said, there has been speculation that if Del Rio and Adam Gase land head coaching jobs elsewhere, they would be in a competition with each other to scalp notable Denver players and coaches to build their own rosters and staffs.
Now that Gase is out of the running for the 49ers job, there's an increased chance that he will stay in Denver—either as offensive coordinator or with a promotion to head coach. There's no guarantee that he'll stay, but it's more likely now than it was yesterday. The Jaguars are among several teams that want to talk to him as a potential offensive coordinator candidate, but they would need permission from Denver to do so.
Del Rio seems primed to steal away at least a handful of Denver's players (and perhaps coaches). We'll soon know if Gase will give him any competition.
