We wont pay that kind of cash to him in 2013.
He wont get much more than $10m-$15m up front, considering they'll already be paying over $40m cash to Peyton, Bailey and Dumervil alone.
$13.7m is the largest signing bonus Denver has paid in recent years which went to the No2 pick in the draft as per the slotted draft pick money that season. Bailey is the only other player who's received a signing bonus of $5m or more in the last few years.
We basically just pay big base salaries now with small signing bonuses.
