I dont think Mays is part of the plan, and would have gotten cut if Doom signed anyway, Prater's cap hit isn't much this year and probably gets cut next year, Peyton is worth everything you give him, Champ has sort of become a Broncos legend. This team has a lot of talent that will require extensions in the near future. You cant keep all these guys. If it wasn't this year, Doom would probably be gone next season.
