      Edit: And just for safe measure.

      Al Wilson, born June 21, 1977 in Jackson, Tennessee, is a American football middle linebacker who currently is a free agent, and went to the University of Tennessee and Jackson Central-Merry H.S.
      Look, I don't know if he has "officially" been released yet or not, but a wikipedia source sure doesn't prove anything.

        and also, He was officially released...

        So that means, He is officially released...

        And that He is no longer a bronco...

        Because he got released...

        he is free to seek offers with other teams...only thing holding him back is doctors. is that clear?

          Don't get smug with me, if don't like fine, but Facts are Facts Mili Wilson has already been released.

                Does it disprove what I said? I don't think so.

                  The fact of the matter is Wikipedia is not a good source of concrete evidence for anything. It is a solid starting point, and alot of the stuff on their is true, but a good majority is opinion and cant be taken seriously. You or I can change anything about that website I want too. I could make that say he hasnt been released. and twenty minutes later someone could change it back. NEVER base research off of wikipedia. It can only end in disaster.

                      Giants?

                      Waiting for Wilson
                      <Apr. 23> The Giants are among a few teams willing to give Wilson a chance despite his back problems, according to John Clayton. The only problem is he hasn't been released. The five-time Pro Bowl linebacker remains on the Broncos' roster even though he held a press conference to announce he was being cut. The Broncos said nothing during that emotional press conference. It's pretty clear they will release him, but his rights currently belong to the Broncos.

                      Could we trade him if he has healed up??

                        Hey if Wilson said he was released then I'm going to listen.

                        Broncos release longtime MLB Wilson
                        NFL.com wire reports


                        DENVER (April 13, 2007) -- The Denver Broncos have released five-time Pro Bowl linebacker Al Wilson.

                        Wilson said the team had told him the news the night of April 12.

                        "My time is up as a Bronco," the eight-year veteran said. "It's time to move forward and try something else. You have to do what's best for your organization, just like a Fortune 500 company. Sometimes you have to let good employees go."

                        Wilson has been the defensive captain for the last six seasons. He led the team in tackles last season with 113.

                        However, he was plagued by injuries in the second half of 2006. Wilson hurt his neck running into teammate Gerard Warren on a tackle against the Seahawks and had to be carted off the field as the crowd gave him an ovation and chanted his name.

                        And while he played the next three weeks, Wilson didn't participate in the season finale against San Francisco due to thumb and back injuries. The loss knocked Denver out of a playoff spot.

                        "I've had a great time here," Wilson said. "I feel like I've got a few more good years in me, too."

                        He was nearly dealt to the New York Giants earlier this spring. However, he failed a physical and the Giants backed out of the trade.

                        "I was looking forward to a new opportunity," Wilson said. "There are 31 other teams out there."

                        But his neck remains a concern. Wilson won't play again until doctors clear him. Wilson claims doctors say his neck is getting better.

                        "If I can get medically cleared, hey, I'm going to go out and play," Wilson said. "I feel like I still can play. It's not about the money. I'll only get out there and play if I'm healthy."

                        Peter Schaffer, Wilson's agent, wouldn't discuss the exact nature of Wilson's neck injury.

                        Wilson played the following week after he injured his neck against division rival San Diego. Asked if he came back too soon from the injury, he paused as his eyes stared at his folded hands.

                        "Maybe I should've sat out a week or two," Wilson said. "The competitive nature in me, I wanted to compete."

                        Wilson had a good parting conversation with Broncos coach Mike Shanahan on Thursday.

                        "I wish him nothing but the best," Wilson said.

                        Yet there's still the side of him that wants to prove cutting him was a bad decision.

                        "You definitely have that in the back of your mind," Wilson said. "You definitely want to prove people wrong. You want to go out and show people you can still compete. If I'm able to get back out there, and the doctors say I can do it, you'll see me out there flying around."

                        Wilson was the undisputed leader in the locker room and even spoke at the funerals for cornerback Darrent Williams and running Damien Nash. Williams and Nash both died in the offseason at age 24.

                        The fact Wilson was a no-show at the Broncos' offseason conditioning program in early April was taken as an ominous sign by teammates. Cornerback Domonique Foxworth took the Broncos shopping Wilson around as a wake-up call.

                        "It tells you everybody is expendable in this business," Foxworth said at the time. "I don't think anybody in this organization will say that we're better off without his personality around. For whatever reasons they felt we'll be better off going in a different direction."

                        If Wilson's neck injury prevents him from playing again, he said he's at peace with his accomplishments. He has 21½ career sacks and five interceptions.

                        "I have no regrets," said Wilson, the Broncos' first-round pick in the 1999 draft out of Tennessee. "I gave them all I had. I can walk away with my head held high."

                        Schaffer thinks Wilson's tenure in Denver will one day be rewarded.

                        "I believe he's done enough to have No. 56 on the Ring of Fame someday," Schaffer said of the ring around Invesco Field that honors former players and administrators. "That's immortality right there. He's definitely a player who's earned that right."

                        But Wilson isn't ready to close the door on his career just yet. Neck willing, he still wants to play.

                        "It's time for a change," he said of his release. "I'm not sad. I'm not mad. I'm looking forward to the next step."

                          then whats the deal with ESPN saying differently? Has Mike had a press conference or made a comment about it? Seems like he would, since Al was such a big part of this organization.

                              Listen guys, the interview they had with Al Wilson was just a ceremonial goodbye to the fans when he found out about his eventual release. The Broncos have yet to file the paperwork, so as of right now he is still a Bronco. Maybe Denver did this so they could see which teams were waiting for him and trade him on draft day
