I've heard a few times about how the end of the CBA and what may happen in 2011 is affecting the negotiations, but I agree with you in that it makes more sense to reward him now and lock him down before he costs an arm and a leg more later. He's been fantastic compared to some of the others around the league who are holding out and refusing to participate in that he's showing up with a desire to remain current with the new schemes, he's speaking with nothing but class and respect for the organization and talking about himself as a long time Bronco. But, the history of McD negotiations and issue handling has me a little concerned that this could end the same way all the other issues have...Denver losing another pro bowl player. But this one hasn't been as difficult and classless as some of the others that have departed, and how many blows can a team take and still stand a chance? This is making the management looking even worse when I didn't think that was possible.
