Sorry, but once again, Marques Douglas is just a player. Not a stud, franchise defender or even pro bowler. He's just a damn freakin' player and right now, Shanahan, just like most coaches and ALL owners in the NFL has more pressing matters in the annual NFL League Meeting.
By the way, the Broncos actually have a salaried professional to look out for free agent acquisitions as he does every single year: Rick Smith. If Marques Douglas doesn't sign in Denver it won't be because Shanahan didn't brown nose him, it'll because he got a better offer elsewhere.
I.e. Last year Lynch signed last year not because Shanahan held his hand and walked him around Dove Valley. It was because he got a great offer from Denver and Larry Coyer (yes the same dude talking to Douglas) convinced Lynch that he would employ a very, very similar defense as Tampa's.
Get over it people. Marques Douglas is just another Keith Washington.
I agree with you all the way up to your veiws on Douglas. While he is far from being a super star he is a very sure tackler. Two straight years with 50 plus tackles is a good thing imo.
