Only if the price is right.

No, I definitely believe there's more than just money at a root of a lot of these decisions. Clearly, money is #1... but I don't think it's a tough sell to bring guys in when you're winning and you've built a proper structure.

I love my work and probably would choose it over another gig even at the loss of a few bucks. A lot of psychology goes into these decisions.

But, at the end of the day... the real key here is the guys WE target. The problem hasn't been people wanting to come to Denver, it's been choosing Marlon McCree and Boss Bailey as the answer to fixing a horrible defense.

The ones to look out for are those vet stars who have made the money and now want a ring. Remember Neal Smith?

In a way, I do. Players will ask for more money to go to teams with bad management and no chance of superbowl. Our coaching staff puts players in positions to succeed and we are becoming contenders, so in a way I do think we get discounts like most well run contenders do.

It's natural that guys will want to play for a better team if possible.

You're not going to go to Kansas instead of the Patriots if the money on offer is roughly similiar from both teams.

Money is still the primary factor for most players, but being a consistently competitive organisation helps too. Hopefully we'll be able to say that in a few years. Lot of work to do to get to that point though.

Most of the time.
