The Broncos have 20 roster spots to fill in 2015, and have ~$33M to do it. These guys ALONE will take more than that in Free Agency.

Basically, you can take 2 of the guys off this list without batting an eyelash. We can quibble later about if the Broncos have enough money to sign a 3rd member of this list.

The Broncos lost 8 starters due to FA this year, and 8 more starters are coming up in FA next year.
Did we really lose 8 guys to FA or did 8 guys contracts end that we weren't interested in giving a new deal?

Of the 5 you have listed there I agree 2 of them won't return, but it won't be because the team is strapped, it will be because they will want more than the team is willing to pay. Knighton and Franklin will seek big money deals elsewhere. DT and JT will not be allowed to leave. Harris will most likely get a good deal here.

Also, the 33 million that that is being listed now is before cuts and money moves are made. Our cap number this year increased because we dumped Champ and Kuper retired. Next year's number will change when additional moves are made that right now aren't foreseen.

I am not too worried about the money. The team will sign the guys they want.
