FO probably offered Doom 6 - 6.5 million saying we will eat half of the cap hit you caused but you have to eat the other half. Means Doom's 8m offer is up his ass now and he is dismayed at 6.5m. Wait till the other teams offer him no more than 6m and after a couple days we sign Abraham at 4m.
I bet players around the league are gonna believe that Elway is a real hard ass and you better have your **** together if you want to neg. with him.
