Three Denver Broncos who attended the University of Miami and are named in the scandal enveloping the Hurricanes' program declined to talk about the allegations Wednesday.

Linebacker D.J. Williams and right tackle Orlando Franklin declined comment as they walked off the practice field. Running back Willis McGahee said: "You want to talk about the Broncos?"

Asked if he wanted to comment on the Yahoo Sports investigation into a jailed Ponzi scheme artist's contentions that he spent freely on Hurricanes athletes, McGahee said: "I ain't talking about Miami. I'm out of Miami."

Also mum was former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, who went straight to the weight room after practice. Former Hurricanes booster Nevin Shapiro said he offered a $5,000 bounty on Tebow if a Hurricanes player knocked him from a game.
