Elway said it was a 35% cut. 35% of $12 million is $7.8 million. If that's the number, then that's very reasonable. He won't get much more than that on the open market. Maybe not even that much given the timing. Teams looking to spend big on pass rushers have already done so, and for less lucrative deals than were expected.
