After The Denver Post reported Sunday that Broncos RB Willis McGahee fired his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, because he was unhappy with his contract, McGahee took to Twitter to assure fans that he wants to end his career in Denver.

"I will retire a bronco #nuffsaid," McGahee wrote on Twitter.

McGahee didn't deny that he fired his agent, but said that the article misstated his position and reasons for firing Rosenhaus.

"I don't understand how you can write a article about a person without confirming if it's true about him/her," McGahee tweeted.

In firing Rosenhaus, McGahee joined a growing list of players who have fired the agent in recent months, including RB LeSean McCoy, LB London Fletcher, OT Bryant McKinnie and S Dashon Goldson.

McGahee gained 1,199 rushing yards on 4.8 yards per carry in his first season with the Broncos, thus making a potential case for a salary increase. However, ater the 2011 season concluded, the Broncos informed Rosenhaus that they would not renegotiate his four-year, $9.5 million contract, according to Mike Klis of The Denver Post. H

McGahee is set to earn $2 million next year, after earning $3 million in 2011.
