Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill And Other NFL Players Are Angry The Broncos Might Not Pay Ja’Wuan James $10 Million Salary After Season-Ending Injury

The Denver Broncos find themselves forced to make a difficult decision this offseason.

On Tuesday afternoon, Broncos offensive Ja’Wuan James suffered a possible season-ending injury when he tore his Achilles during a workout away from the Broncos’ facility.


Team sources told ESPN that James suffered a torn Achilles tendon in a workout away from the Broncos’ facility. The injury is considered season-ending, and James will have surgery to repair it.

Considering that James’ injury occurred away from the team’s facility it could be classified as a “non-football injury” and the Broncos would not be obligated to pay James $10 million salary owed for this season.

It is worth noting that the reason James wasn’t working out at the team facility is because Broncos players collectively decided not to show up to voluntary workouts due to Covid safety reasons.

Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, and other NFL players were not happy with the fact that the Broncos might pay James’ salary this year.

While those players aren’t happy with the situation others are laying blame on the NFLPA for advising players to not show up to team facilities this offseason.
