    The average professional life expectancy of an NFL Player is 3.5 years. The expiration date on the running backs has expired. The pounding, wear and tear they have already taken makes each of them a short term project at best. Their best days are behind them. Buyer Beware!

    It will be interesting to see how long the Osweiler situation drags out. The Broncos aren’t typically proactive in their contract talks, Derek Wolfe’s extension notwithstanding, but they’ll have to be in his instance to keep him off the market. If he hits UFA status officially, the Broncos could be priced out of the discussion by a QB-desperate team. Judging by their willingness to part with players like Julius Thomas, Terrance Knighton and Eric Decker, the Broncos have not overpaid for players lately. Their potential quarterback of the future emerging as a free agent will be the biggest test of this patience.

    I think smart people know Elway doesn’t view Osweiler anymore of the future of the team as any of those FAs mentioned. He got worse the more he played. That team just needs a steady hand at QB and someone who is adept to bootleg passing and not turning the ball over. If he doesn’t accept $9 mil a year tops, Elway will look elsewhere.
