Out of all the choices the Broncos have, that is BY FAR the worst one...that's why they are forced to do something about it now. They MUST either cut him now, or rework his contract to AT MOST about $8M per year (which I seriously doubt he'll take in Denver).
I dont think you know how the cap works or how the numbers are spread out over the life of the contract. If you did, you would stop posting that the Broncos are in cap hell. They are not, they also have rollover money from NOT spending up to the cap last year.
Stop justifying this move as if it makes any financial sense. It doesnt. Unless your worried about Bowlen's liquer cabinet running dry.
