Not a agent but a restructure in Elvis' mind may not be the same to ELway
Denver does/will not pay Elvis $31 MM over the next 3 years. Maybe $31 over 5 but the FO will not pay Elvis $10MM or more at any point in the next 3 years
Adjusting to contract to a signing bonus will not solve the issue either
Denver's looking to pay a player of Elvis' caliber about $6 MM a year thus Freeney comes into play
And Elvis is just one of many players in this situation so all is not lost if Elvis walks.
