    Dan "Big Daddy" Wilkinson's no-show nixes Broncos trade

    [size=13pt]Big Daddy's no-show nixes Broncos trade [/size]

    DENVER (AP) Dan Wilkinson failed to report to the Denver Broncos, so the trade with the Miami Dolphins was declared void Saturday.

    The Broncos sent a sixth-round pick to the Dolphins on March 2 for the 14-year veteran defensive tackle. They extended an earlier deadline for the defensive lineman to report but when he failed to show up for his physical, the deal was voided.

    The Broncos retained their rights to the sixth-round pick in this year's draft and the Dolphins retained the rights to Wilkinson.

    Wilkinson was selected by Cincinnati with the first overall selection in the 1994 draft out of Ohio State. He has played for the Bengals (1994-97), Washington (1998-2002), Detroit (2003-05) and Miami.

    Wilkinson, who has 54½ sacks in his career, has started all 16 regular-season games eight times in his career, including three of the past four seasons. He joined the Dolphins after starting every game in three seasons with the Lions.

    He was strictly a backup for the Dolphins last season, playing 10 games and posting 14 tackles, breaking up three passes and forcing a fumble.

    So what usually happens in a situation like this?
    Would he be cut and sitting in the NFL unemplyment line?

    Actually he doesn't want to do any offseason conditioning or something like that.
    Basically he is saying he should be allowed to play at 450 pounds.

    Nope - he goes back to the Dolphins and the end result is as if nothing happened.
    It's up to the Dolphins to decide what they do next.
    I'd guess they will end up cutting him.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
