Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro pose the question "what would you do if you were Brock?" on The Afternoon Drive on Wednesday. It's a fun mental exercise, but the bottom line is that Brock Osweiler is the one who must decided to go for the big money in free agency or give John Elway a hometown discount.
We all have a specific number in our heads (mine is hovering between ten to twelve million), but if Osweiler is thinking sixteen million then it just comes down to how much do the Denver Broncos really believe in Osweiler for the next four to five years?
The most troubling fact is that the Broncos do not appear to be worried about contract negotiations with Osweiler until Peyton Manning makes his decision. With free agency rapidly approaching, that should be a huge red flag for all of us. Contract talks take time and time is running out.
With each passing day, it feels more and more like the Broncos are going to let Osweiler walk. What do you think?
