Even if the Broncos cut DJ Williams and Joe Mays, they only have $3M to spend in Free Agency (at most).
The Broncos would still need to sign a starting Defensive Tackle to take the place of Bannan. If the Broncos resign Bannan ($1M), they would only have $2M to spend in Free Agency. That is why they want to restructure Dumervil.
So much fail. First you assume a team with six picks -- and picking late inevery round -- will be at the very high end on the rookie allocation pool.
Then you add a bunch of players as if every dime of their salary counts instead of just the difference between the new deal/tender and the player that would get taken off the Top 51.
