    It would definitely be a grievance, which is why I think the team is being so vocal about him playing because he doesn't feel right mentally. Getting it out there that he's fully cleared medically but refusing to play, that might give them some leverage.

    It will be interesting to see how it plays out. The Broncos cant go into next season with him playing games. While a guy like Wilkinson struggles some at RT, hes reliable and works hard. Same thing with Bolles - as frustrating as he can be hes out there every game. Maybe Bolles can be salvaged at RG. I also remember Wilkinson playing better at left tackle but that was a small sample.

    That would be amazing if they could find a way to drop James without the cap hit

    I know what I'm asking Santa for this year.
