The bottom line is Elway tried to lowball Doom for team loyalty, gave him the lowest possible offer, upped it to Kruger level for one year, and maybe $3.5m next year.
Maybe it will work out, we'll see. $1m more and Elvis would still be a Bronco, a creative restructuring, Elvis would still be a Bronco. But Elway tried to get hardass with a team captain and an original Bronco. We'll see how it works out.
Denver has how many starters we are replacing on D, one or two? Replacing one position isn't going to be as hard as you think man. The Ravens tried to play hard ass with a HOF team captain and original Raven in Ed Reed and now have have to replace two HOF team leaders instead of one. What do you think will be harder to replace HOF MLB and HOF S or a pass rushing RDE?
