He isn't even supposed to start RUNNING till May. All we need is another "I'll be ready by opening day" routine like last year. At least Pryce says he's ready to go.
We should redo his contract to 5 years, move the remaining bonus money into it and slap another 5 million bonus on it. 10-12 million bonus over 5 years with another high back end. That would lower him to around 3-4 million this year. Remember, Denver still has to pay off that SB if he's traded of around 5 million as he's got two years left on the contract. It's his base salary that's out of whack, especially after his back injury. Sure he "feels good", what else is he going to say. But I wouldn't mind extending him if he's reasonable about it and puts in a two tiered bonus. He's going to get that type of contract anyway.
Obviously, we would be crazy to simply push his fat cat salary into signing bonus. He's still going to clear around 35 million for his career here under that scenario.
