It was always going to automatically void after the super bowl. The Broncos wanted to spread his signing bonus over 2 years even though he was only going to play for one on that contract.

That sounds illegal.

Has nothing to do with what he's saying.

Welker will most likely be gone next year so that's a bit more room.

Plus, isn't the cap figure going up next year?
We'll lose some guys like every team but if we can keep two of Knighton/Harris/Franklin/Moore after JT/DT, i think we'll be alright.

The cap is supposed to go up 10 mil next year and be 150 mil by 2016 i believe.

Broncos don't need 'tweak on cap'. Only way Broncos need 'tweak' is if they extend Demaryius, and shift some of his out year money into 2014. Broncos are going to be fine in 2015 too. Though I project they'll lose Franklin, Knighton, and Welker.

I expect Dreessen to be gone in training camp.

Not at all, the contract had some clauses in it that triggered the void, I believe it had to do with playing time and was very easy to hit.

The reason is for the readers convenience. Instead of posting a link that everyone has to go click on a read elsewhere, the article is posted here for convenience.
