Found March 05, 2012 on BroncoTalk:

On Sunday evening, PFT‘s Josh Alper noted that Denver Broncos‘ running back Willis McGahee asked — and was denied — a pay-raise from Denver’s front office.

The PFT report was based off of Mike Klis’ original Denver Post report which stated McGahee fired his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, for unsuccessfully trying to re-negotiate McGahee’s contract with the Broncos.  Sunday afternoon, McGahee seemingly denied that report over Twitter.

I don’t understand how you can write a article about a person without confirming if it’s true about him/her

McGahee first tweeted the above status before continuing:

I will retire a bronco #nuffsaid

— Willismcgahee (@WillisMcGahee) March 4, 2012

Last season in Denver, McGahee rushed 249 times for 1,199 yards and scored five total touchdowns.  At age thirty however, it would make sense for the Broncos to hold-off giving McGahee a larger contract before they see how well he produces in 2012.

As for whether he asked for more money or fired his agent over it or not is unclear.  Per McGahee though, he’s not planning on going anywhere soon.
