Sources have confirmed that Al Wilson, the Denver Broncos defensive mainstay for the past eight seasons, will be released by the team later this afternoon.
It's rumored that Wilson, who suffered a serious neck injury on Dec. 3 against Seattle and failed a physical with the New York Giants on March 23, may announce his retirement due to neck and shoulder issues.
A news conference is scheduled for 2 p.m. at the Denver office of Wilson's agent, Peter Schaffer, where an official announcement is expected.
