For some reason, former Denver Broncos tight end Virgil Green is bashing the Broncos front office for not respecting his game and the way he went about his business as he and the Los Angeles Chargers prepare to play each other on Sunday.

“I’m really trying to go at them, and show them what they had and didn’t use,” Green said. “I don’t think they respected the way I played the game, the way I went about my business.

”I feel like here, not only from my teammates but from the coaches and the organization, I feel like the work I do is more respected here than it was there.”

He’s feeling the respect from his three-year $8.6 million deal after finishing out his three-year extension that he signed in 2015 that was worth $8.4 million. Not bad for a former seventh-round pick.

After averaging 10 receptions a year in Denver, he is on the verge of having his best season as a pro needing just three more receptions to tie his best mark of 22 set in 2016. He also needs to add a touchdown to break his career season best of one.

I am sure he would love to break both personal bests in Denver this weekend to show his former team that they made a mistake letting him escape in free agency.
