My guess is if we're close, but come up short in 2014, and if he returns for a 3rd season, he'll restructure at that time.

As far as developing talent for the post PM era, no player is more important than Von Miller. He will be the highest paid player in the league. Either by us or somebody else.

The second most important Post-Manning era move would be to surround Brock, or whomever the QB is with a top 5 LT (Clady), a playmaking WR (Thomas) and a decent possession guy (Decker.)

Doom is a 3-4 speed rushing specialist, who's somewhat of a liability in run support. Again, a great weapon to have on the team, but not as important as the players listed above.
Have to agree here.
