They should just renegotiate his current contract. Give him like a $2.5m guaranteed one year deal with incentives/bonuses for reaching certain goals (number of games played, reaching the playoffs, etc.).
This way he gets his money now and the Broncos won't be stuck with dead money should he get injured or if he retires after the season.
