Wade Phillips denies being a divisive force in the Denver Broncos locker room

New, comments

Walter Football’s Charlie Campbell reported that Wade Phillips fostered division in the locker room in both Denver and in Houston in 2013.

Charlie Campbell from Walter Football dropped a bombshell on Denver Broncos fans today with a tweet about Wade Phillips being a disruptive and divisive force in the Broncos locker room in 2016.

Not only did Phillips vigorously denied this claim in a tweet of his own, but Broncos players jumped into the fray to deny these reports as well. Campbell claims that the same source that gave him the inside info that the Broncos would trade up for Paxton Lynch in the 2016 NFL Draft, so it’s not just some bum out there on the Internet.

Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro from The Afternoon Drive discussed this topic, sharing their conversations with players on the team. They agreed with me that this report is fairly unsubstantiated and a bit of reach.

Is the Tony Romo to Denver connection getting stronger? After posing with John Elway and a House Republican’s party this week, the rumors are certainly flying. Eric and Les discussed whether or not this potential marriage is gaining any steam.
