Sounds legit.

And no -- nobody said he agreed to that. Someone said he will take a paycut. Please don't post false stuff.

Stop justifying this move as if it makes any financial sense. It doesnt. Unless your worried about Bowlen's liquer cabinet running dry.
Yes, I understand exactly how the cap works. And yes, the Broncos will be in cap hell in 2014 if they keep Dumervil's contract as is. The $14M rollover is a continuance of the roughly $30M they inherited in rollover from the 2011 season (which they partially spent in 2012). Just add up the top 51 contracts. I'm sick of explaining it. All I'm saying is, the rumors regarding the Broncos offering 'half' of Dumervil's salary are true mathematically. They can only afford about $8M (total cap hit) in 2013, and $8M (total cap hit) in 2014 from Dumervil. That cut's about $10M off of Dumervil's cap hit over the next two years. He won't agree to it. Not here.

It's not something the Broncos want to do, it's all they can afford and still be able to add a starting CB and NT in Free Agency. Do the math.

$17M comes from Elvis' would be 2013 cap hit ($13.6M) + the dead money created by cutting Dumervil in 2014 (~$3.2M).

I already told you that carrying Dumervil's contract 'as is' for the 2 years would cause cap hits of $13.6M, and $11.6M ($25M total)...They CANNOT, under any circumstances afford that. They would have to cut SEVERAL players in 2014.

The only choices they have are to offer Dumervil a roughly $10M paycut over the next two years, or cut him. That's the mathematical reality.

Of course it is about the money. He is going to get a very large SECOND payday in his career. Most players do not get this chance, and don't kid yourself he can go chase a SB title in N.E., NY, GB, CHi, SF, Sea, Pitt, Balt, Wash, or ATL. He don't need to stay in Denver to chase a ring.
