Phillips with a couple of draft studs for the line look to be an upgrade over Elvis in both run and pass.
i was never really worried about losing Elvis one way or another.
if we kept him it meant we didn't have to draft someone high and potentially lose out on value in other areas.

if we lost him which we did, i assumed Elway would find a replacement in the draft long term and FA for the short term.

losing his salary does however help us in the future with cap flexibility. no longer need to worry about redoing his deal and making it fit under the cap while extending Von and others.
