It's incorrect in a couple spots, but nothing major. Their cap figure for Wes Welker is wrong (should be $6M), and they don't even have Matthew Willis ($1.32M) on the list.

Still no room to add a $6M per year player (over the next couple years), unless they plan on making more cuts (including Kuper and Mays).

They could have signed Dumervil, but would have had to make some cuts for it work. Which I would have been fine with.

The Broncos will be sitting at $128M after the draft with $9M in rollover remaining (if they cut Kuper and Mays). However, Vickerson, Knighton, DRC, and Vasquez all make more money next year...not including all the internal FA's the Broncos need to sign. The Broncos aren't in bad shape in 2014, but can't afford to spend the entire rollover in 2013...unless they want to make some more cuts (McGahee, Prater, etc.).

That is ridiculously awesome.

Final year of Dexter I will be sorry to see that show go.

I wonder if he is going to die or just get caught.

I thought a signing bonus could be spread over the length of the contract (2 years) . He got a 4 MM SB and a base this year of 2MM.

SO the question is did the $4mm hit the books all this year or just $2MM

Why is Denver keeping $5MM on the books for Mays? Short of an injury settlement

I'm sure Alabama is a fine place... I mean, a lot of old-fashioned (that is, racist) people who are tied to their ways, but I'm sure it's plenty fine especially with all the NASA engineers that live down there in, I think, Huntsville.

But if I had millions like McClain... well first of all if I were in the NFL, knowing what I know, I wouldn't vacation. I could party when I retire - if I were in McClain's position I would either be on the field, in the film room, or in the weight room for 16 hours a day, five days a week.

But if I were the high roller type, I certainly wouldn't be doing it in Alabama.... I'd go for LA or New York.... maybe ATL or Miami if I played for a southern team. If I had Brady/Gisele money, I'd be hitting up Monaco and cruising Sicily/Venice/Catalunya.

I mean, Decatur, Alabama? After I've already been in trouble in the same place?

Eff that.

PFT reporting Denver at $8.4M in cap space.

Not that much of a tragedy, really. His money will go somewhere. Bail bondsmen, jewelry makers, liquor store owners, club owners, car dealership owners, gun shop owners, and a whole host of other working people will get the money that he clearly has no respect for.
