Terrell Davis....

Postby Homeless » Tue Feb 11, 2003 2:00 pm

Last Friday, Terrell Davis ran for the first time since undergoing microfracture surgery in September. The Broncos trainer, Steve Antonopulos, told the Rocky Mountain News that Davis’ run was “real easy,” and that Davis should be able to increase his rehabilitation in a few weeks. Despite the fact that only one player (Fred Lane) has ever recovered from microfracture surgery well enough to play, Davis refuses to retire. Davis is scheduled to make a wholly unrealistic $4.7 million this year. He’ll need to rework his contract if he wants to avoid being released. If Davis were to retire—voiding the rest of his contract—he’d save the team a whopping $9.9 million off this year’s cap. That money could be used to acquire a high-profile free agent, such as Jake Plummer.
At the Super Bowl, Davis spoke openly about his desire to continue playing football, preferably in Denver. We believe that he will renegotiate his contract and stay with the team.


I sure hope he makes it back, be it at Denver or anywhere else for that matter.

I'd like to see him play too. I don't know if it will be in Denver though, unless he restructures his contract. Also with Portis there will Davis want to be relagated to the back-up role, and vice-versa for Portis? I don't think so. Both those guys want to play. It could get pretty interesting to see how everything shakes down.

I personally hope he does it. It would be one of those "feel good" stories, and I hate to see injuries shorten guy's careers like that, but I wouldn't bet on it turning out successfully.

He should come back..but Denver is not his home anymore...it belongs to Portis....Plenty of other teams need could use him and thats what he should be doing...going to others in need and takeing over the starten Rb postion for them.....Portis should not lose or split carries with him...it not right to do that to Portis...but then again since when do most team in the NFL "do the right thing??"

9.9 million salary cap hit!! I think he should restructure, or retire. I think Davis is a class act, and was the best RB for a while, but I now think his time has gone, and he should sit back and enjoy.

I would love to see him play at the level he used to play at, but if he can only play to the level of a Thomas Jones, I really don't want to see that!

i hope he does get to resurrect his career cuz like Indy said he was a great back at one time. with that much cap room at stake i dont think that he will be in Denver unless he signs for the league minimum. that may be a bit harsh but with Portis running as well as he is then i dont see much room for TD to play there. plus if he ever does come back to solid starter quality there will be a lot of teams tryin to pull him away.

I hope to see anybody as classy as Davis end on HIS own terms. But take my boy Emmitt's record away??????????? I wouldn't go that far. If he comes back, I don't think it will be in a Broncos uniform.
