In response to the item in the Denver Post explaining that a request for a raise was made, McGahee took to Twitter.
And while McGahee didn’t directly deny the report, he said without equivocation, “I will retire a bronco #nuffsaid.”
Of course, an intention to retire as a Broncos doesn’t mean he hasn’t asked for more money. But another tweet seems to indicate that he indeed disagrees: “I don’t understand how you can write a article about a person without confirming if it’s true about him/her.”
If McGahee wants more money, he doesn’t have many options. And if he wants to retire as a Bronco, all he has to do it keep showing up for work. Unless he gets cut before he’s ready to retire, he’ll get what he wants.
