On Friday Carlos Henderson Jersey , the window for NFL teams to exercise contract options opened. For the Denver Broncos, they will have until March 13, 2019 to decide whether or not they wish to retain the services for four veteran players this season. Those players are cornerback Chris Harris Jr. ($7.9M salary), inside linebacker Brandon Marshall ($7M), wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders ($10.25M) and defensive lineman Derek Wolfe’s ($8.55M). Joel Corry of CBS Sports broke down how each contract option would play out for the Broncos earlier this week.The only player absolutely safe on this list would be Harris and the rest will be part of some business decisions the Broncos will have to make leading up to the start of the free agency period. If they choose to not to pick up any of these options, then those players will be released and the Broncos would be free and clear from those hefty veteran salaries. They could free up over $23M in salary cap by not picking up the options of all three of the other veterans in Marshall, Sanders, and Wolfe. That would certainly raise eyebrows around the NFL. More than likely at least one of these players will be moving on in mid-March. Your guess is as good as mine as to which.Horse TracksNFL News The issue of ownership of the Denver Broncos keeps getting murkier as news broke today that Annabel Bowlen, wife of owner Pat Bowlen, entered the fray over the future of the franchise.Annabel filed a motion in Arapahoe County District Court on Monday to intervene in a lawsuit filed in the same court by Pat Bowlen’s brother Devontae Booker Jersey , William, in October. Bill Bowlen’s Oct. 25 motion argued the three people entrusted to run the team after Pat relinquished day-to-day control in 2014 due to an Alzheimer’s diagnosis have failed to uphold his wishes. Specifically, Bill Bowlen says the Trustees have not acted in his best interest or that of his family and the Broncos — including their choice for eventual owner.Annabel’s counter suit claims that they are.Annabel Bowlen announced in June that she, too, had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.Bill Bowlen indicated in a statement following his original court filing that the operation of the franchise had “deteriorated, while my brother’s health has worsened.”The three trustees are Broncos president and CEO Joe Ellis, Broncos general counsel Richard Slivka and Denver attorney Mary Kelly.The three-person trust was established in 2014 to carry out Pat Bowlen’s wishes for future ownership of the team — which has always been to have the ownership go to one of his seven childrenThe fight for ownership began to heat up this summer when two daughters — 28-year-old Brittany Bowlen from Pat’s current marriage to Annabel, and 47-year-old Beth Bowlen Wallace from Pat’s first marriage to Sally Parker — both came forward as interested parties.The Broncos — under the leadership of Ellis, Slivka and Kelly — have put their support behind Brittany and have continued to claim that Beth has not met the criteria.Here is a timeline of major events in the ongoing saga:
