Brock Osweiler's Altercation Outside Pizza Shop Caught on Video

A group of hecklers confronted quarterback Brock Osweiler outside a pizza shop in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Saturday morning, per TMZ Sports.

One person physically provoked Osweiler by violently shoving him in the back following an exchange of pushes between Osweiler and a woman outside the restaurant. Local authorities quickly broke up the altercation and defused the situation. (Warning: Video contains NSFW language.)

Sports Illustrated's Aaron Nagler is sympathetic toward Osweiler, who he believed was in a no-win situation:

There's no question discretion was the better part of valor for the free-agent QB.

He stands to make a lot of money this offseason. KUSA's Mike Klis reported the Denver Broncos have a three-year offer on the table worth more than $45 million. According to Klis, the Houston Texans are also strong contenders to sign Osweiler, and in the event they're interested, his price tag will only increase.

Had Saturday's incident escalated, his market value in free agency would've almost certainly been affected, if even in a small way.

Osweiler not only saved himself from the headache of potential legal proceedings stemming from an arrest, but he also likely saved himself a few million dollars on his next contract.
