Dre Bly CB-changed $9m option bonus into a signing bonus prorated over remaining 4yrs at $2.25m per year. 2008 cap hit was $11.3m. New 2008 cap number=$4.55m

Dead Cap Room: This is based on 2008 releases/retirements all hitting on 2008 cap bar Travis Henry as he was a post June release, which they are to date according to RMN 09/03/08.

Javon Walker $6.8m
Ian Gold $3.5m

Mike Bell $7k
Samie Parker $40k
Lorne Sam $7k
Garrett Hackney $7k
Josh Barrett $14k
Mitch Eriksson $15k
Alvin McKinley $725k
Cecil Sapp $140k
Keary Colbert $833k


Total dead cap room=$29.157m

Total cap =$113.317m

Broncos total cap room = $117.252m

Cap room available estimate = $3.935m



Dead Money for 2009

Travis Henry $3.6m
Lorne Sam $13k
Garrett Hackney $13k
Josh Barrett $42k
Mitch Eriksson $15k
Alvin McKinley $625k
Keary Colbert $1.66m

Total $5.97m


The Broncos currently have 64 players on the payroll for 2008 with a total cap charge of approx $113.3m. Approx $29m is tied up in dead cap space.
So somewhere around $4m under the estimated 2008 cap.

The estimated salary cap for 2009 should jump by another $7m or thereabouts to $123m. An approximate estimate currently has the Broncos at $93.0m with 51 players under contract. So approx $30m under the cap for 2009 at present.

The more startling issue in terms of the Broncos finances this season are the differences in bonus payouts.

2006 $44m
2007 $73m-including: Bailey $5.5m, Bly $7.4m, Cutler $12.3m, Graham $10.2m Henry $6.1m, Walker $10m, Lepsis $3.2m, Moss $3.2m
2008 $53.6m to date based on most SB's hitting this season. These figures include Bly $9m, Graham $5m, Moss $4.5m, Stokley $5m, B Bailey $4.3m, Robertson $3.1m, Royal $1.85m, Colbert $2.5, Koutouvides $2m.
2009 $24m allocated thus far the majority belongs to DJ Williams $10m (estimate), Robertson $3m and Bailey $3m roster bonus.

More updates will follow shortly including cap room for 2009 and cash spent comparisons with other franchises for 2008 and comparing previous years


The above information is as accurate as possible utilising resources such as USA Today salary database, NFLPA, Rotoworld, Mile Hile Report, Denver Post, RMN, CBS, PFW etc.

Cap room is approximately up to date as the RMN confirmed that the Broncos were just over $15m under the cap prior to the Boss Bailey/Marlon McCree/Marquand Manuel signings

Cap Room = $5.2m as per PFW figures on 26/08/08 prior to the roster cutdown from 80 and Holland's trade.

Rep, great work.

Jesus Mike, a fourth of your cap is tied up in Dead Money? No wonder Bowlen is pissed at you.

Ins: Building through the draft, free agency frugalty.

Outs: Mike's carte blanche and nutsack.

Eddie is the Man!

Is our dead cap camparable to the rest of the league or just Washington?

Without considering the current pre/post June 1st designations, how much dead money comes off next year?

In my estimate there's no dead money in 2009. I have it all coming off this year. No reason to split it unless we're gonna bring in 1 or 2 players with high cap hits in 2008 and that looks highly unlikely at this point.

More than enough money to sign our young core!

Thanks again Eddie!

so next year when that dead cap money comes off we are going to be in great shape? wanna speculate how much under the cap we will be next year, even assume it does not go up vs. this year cap number

My thought too -- hard to push for contention without 25 million that could have bought two superstars...

I wonder how we stackup to other teams in that department?

Can you imagine the hard working people of America reading that John Engleberger makes $2M per year. It's enough to make you puke.

Patrick Ramsey makes more than he does to be a buddy to Jay Cutler!

Wow, with no dead money next year and an estimated $40 million in cap money, we should be in very good shape next offseason. I'd expect most of our young core to be locked up with a series of extensions and we should still have money to play with. There really won't be many big decisions on veterans contracts next year either. The only one I saw would be Hamilton.
