Default Our Cap...We Done Spent it All

http://blogs.denverpost.com/broncos/...-agency/12828/

Peyton Manning, QB … 5 years, $96 million … $18 million
Joe Mays, MLB* … 3 years, $12 million … $4 million
Joel Dreessen, TE … 3 years, $8.5 million … $4 million
Jacob Tamme, TE … 3 years, $8 million … $3.5 million
Tracy Porter, CB … 1 year, $4 million … $4 million
Mike Adams, S … 2 years, $4 million … $2 million
Wesley Woodyard, LB* … 2 years, $4 million … $2 milion
Andre Caldwell, WR … 2 years, $1.8 million … $900,000**
Caleb Hanie, QB … 1 year, $1.25 million … $1.25 million***

Totals … $139.55 million … $39.65 million

We have maybe a 1 million left?

We got Caldwell ****ing cheap. Guess that's why Royal wasn't in our plans. I expect Mays is gone after this year at that ridiculous salary. The TE's have their contracts a bit front loaded which is nice for the future.

That's cash not caproom and spread over 2012 and 2013. Tebow only saved about $500k on the cap or $1.2m depending on who takes on the $700k in guaranteed money.

That was just cash though, for Bonus already paid wasn't it? Capwise, I don't think we get any more than the 1.2 Timmy was scheduled for this year.

I though I had read somewhere that Manning didn't count anything towards this years salary cap, I have no idea why but I could have swore I read that

I'm hearing it's 13 not 18 this year. It's all speculation right now. They will have plenty to sign draft picks.

What they need to worry about is how much that cap will raise after the new TV deals. I'm hearing like a 30% jump. Or up into the 190 range.

OMG. Bowlen is broke. I wish he'd just sell the team and quit being cheap.

No room left on the cap for rookies? The $39.65M available starting figure must be after setting aside a rookie fund...or so I hope.

The DP article doesn't really tell the whole story. This article explains it in more detail.

Damn Caldwell was a bargain

btw I heard elsewhere we still got something like 8 million in cap left & they are trying to resign Marcus Thomas & Jason Hunter cheap. Thinking about signing Dixon as well.

I like how Klis moved the goal posts on our cap space to fit the team's money spent. At the start of FA we had nearly $45M in cap room. Now suddenly $5M of that disappeared?

The team also pushed an extra million and change of savings into the 2013 season and hasn't cut anyone yet. Is there a good reason to give Goodman his salary? If we can find anyone else worth a damn isn't it better to save the $4M we're about to pay Warren for likely not playing a single down again?

There are still plenty of cash resources to be freed up and used if the team so wishes.

Forgive me for stating the obvious but if we draft a corner in the first 3 rounds, which I think is a strong possibility, bye bye Goodman.

Meanwhile we have no defensive tackles...

Goodman is almost certainly gone no matter who we draft. Chris Harris > Andre Goodman.

Yeah, this is BS. This is the Post....fluffing Bowlen's balls. This is a big red-flag telling Broncos fans they are close to done with spending.

Bottom line: when the smoke clears and their official cap numbers are reported they will be significantly under the cap. They actually had $50m of CAP room. ($27m from last year, and $23m this year). They also only count the salaries of the top 52 players (something like that). There are probably a half dozen guys who will be headed out....Goodman, amongst others.

Now, they do have to reserve CAP space for the draft and work out bonuses, but this team can sign more players if they want to.

We signed Porter and have Harris in reserve. Goody's gone regardless of the draft.

Still seems weird to me we sign the guy responsible for the worst football moment in Manning's life. Might sound petty, but I hope they ran that by him. I wouldn't want Porter around if I were him.
