throw this in ...portis has denied threatening to hold out on training camp...he says he is prepared to play even with his current contract, though he wont be satisfied with it.

The point I have been trying to make for a while now...


That's a lofty assumption.

Portis >>>>>>>>>>>>> Griffin

Yes, I never said Griffin was as good, never. What we both said is that they may be able to do fine without him. He is one of the best RBs in the league and is a threat to go all the way every play but they could live without him. Their line is one of the best in the league and can make almost any RB succeed. If Griffin doesn't do good they can just settle for another 1300 yard year by Anderson. Mods, go ahead and lock this thread though, this arguement is going nowhere and there is no way the Broncos would trade him.

Well, I don't even know what a "capologist" is....but this sounds bad to me.
The Broncos are already almost $5 million over the salary cap for the coming season and still want to re-sign Pro Bowl middle linebacker Al Wilson, unrestricted free-agent linebacker Ian Gold, defensive end Bertrand Berry and fullback Reuben Droughns. -ESPN

If I were Portis, I wouldn't hold my breath for much extra from the Broncos.
