Because not everyone agrees that asking Doom to take a pay cut was the right move, considering how his deal played out in the next few years.
The team did not need Doom to take a pay cut to sign other FA's. There are/were other ways to clear that money, as there always is.
This move wasn't about cap space, it was about Elway making a power play on a player he thought was overpaid. While I can appreciate the motivation behind that, I don't think it was warranted at all.
