Default 2016/2017 Broncos Salary Cap Freakonomics

Currently the Broncos have about $7.72M to spend in FA or rollover to 2017 (after cutting Colquitt). The Broncos estimated 2017 cap space is $70.2M, which would be enough to re-sign all their own starter FA's, sign all their draft picks, and have about $18M remaining after the entire roster is filled. That includes keeping Okung.

If you're not getting better, you're getting worse. Believe it or not, the Broncos are still getting better, and can still get A LOT better in 2017.

3.3 million in TOTAL QB salaries next season... Crazy based on what Oz is making.

I think Kubiak envisions Lynch/Siemian much like the Elway/Kubiak dynamic. I think Siemian is a guy who could potentially come in and win games, just like Kubiak could.

He looks very comfortable at OTA's , that's for sure.

I envision the Broncos going hog wild in FA for the next 5 years. They've got draft capital, a young roster, and money to burn.

True but that is the big IF. If he is our starting QB we are in great shape, if he fails we are in bad shape trying to find the next QB regardless of cap space.

Possibly the only blemish on Elway's resume.

Sanders, Miller, Marshal and Stewart will ALL get more than what you listed.

Miller wants 80m guaranteed and 22/yr
Marshall will get 10-11m per
I wouldn't bet on Denver re-signing Sanders being he will be 30 and expensive based on production. Somebody will offer him 12-14m per on a short term deal.
Stewart will command 8+

Just like these charts you did last year that showed how Denver was going to keep everybody at super cheap prices, this chart is equally unrealistic.

1. Broncos can franchise Miller for the next 3 years art $14M, $17M, and $23M. So $22M is unrealistic.
2. Lol at thinking Brandon Marshall will become the highest paid ILB in the NFL by a wide margin.


Broncos will have plenty of cash to burn. Don't you worry about that.

Prior to FA I showed that the Broncos could keep Osweiler at $12M, Malik at $12M, and that Trevathan would walk for $6M. That's exactly what the Broncos offered, and they were fair offers.

Buy in or get the hell out.

3. Darian Stewart $10M? I just can't...
1) No Way Millers agent lets his client play on the tag this year...let alone the next 3 years. Are you kidding? If he were a FA, he could probably get 25 per right now. If he doesn't get a deal done by the deadline, he will be a holdout into the regular season. He can hold out till week 11 and still have the year count where Denver would need to sign him or tag him again,. Rinse, repeat.

No way his agent lets him play for 14m when he's worth a lot more than that. Miller said he wants 80m guaranteed. I expect the new deal to be like 132/6 with 75m guaranteed...or for him to holdout. you should just prepare yourself for that so you don't let yourself down, again.

2) Luke Kuechely signed for 12.5m per prior to last season. And you think Marshall is going to sign for 7 Get real. You can't say you have a great LB and then say he's only worth such a pittance. I'll bet you anything you want that if he stays healthy in 2016, Brandon Marshall gets over 10m per and if you give me good odds, I'll bump that number to 11.5m per.

Name your price (no pun intended)

3) I said 8m, not 10. And I stand by that.

FFS look at recent deals before you just go full homer with your projections each year.

Hahaha

You also listed Wolfe at like 6m, IIRC.

And I told you you were being foolish, then, too...about all of those predictions.

Look at what they got, man.

You weren't even in the right ballpark.

Might as well say "hey guys, good news...we're gonna have 100million in cap space after we sign everybody to 1 dollar for 8 year contracts."

I mean, whatever makes you feel better.

Elway should be trying like hell to get guys extended this offseason, but he has to keep Von's money in the bank till he gets that figured out.

I'd bet as soon as that deal gets done, at least 2 other guys get extensions shortly after.

Huh? Tell us more about how you think Brandon Marshall is getting $11M, Von gets $22M, and Sanders gets $14M. I'd also like to hear more about how you think the Chefs Defense is the best in NFL history.
