I already said this in my previous post, but the stance that those FA's don't come to Denver without Doom re-doing his deal is flat out wrong. There a millions of ways to reduce the cap.
Pass rushers are a premier position. You don't let them walk away at age 29. Trying to win a title you say? Then you don't let your best pass rusher walk. You just don't.
How about asking Champ to take a pay cut? He's not worth the $10M he's getting this year. Take a few from him. That's just one of many options the team had.
