Because there's no reason to cut him until Denver has either signed a replacement or we get to Saturday.
Doom has the leverage to not accept a paycut on Denver's terms, and Denver is $11M under the cap so they have the leverage to not cut him until it fits their timeframe. I'm sure part of Doom's belief that he's worth more than Denver wants to pay him is contingent on a release before FA starts this afternoon so he can be a part of the initial flurry. There might not be as much money out there for him if Denver waits until Saturday.
