    Yes. That's why I don't see him going after Cousins if the contract goes over $20M

      No I meant $20M Elway is kinda of cheap. I think he will offer $20M to start and then go up $23M.

        For Cousins I think the negotiations start well above $23mil. Anything less and you're not even in the running for him.

          Okay, so you are apparently completely divorced from reality on this one. Even Elway isn't going to lowball a guy like that.

              I agree. He won't show up to Denver knowing that is where he wants to start.

                If NYG are intent on not taking a QB #2 then Barkley or Chubb make the most sense for them.
                NYG loves pass rushers, Gettleman loves pass rushers.
                Indy at #3 also makes sense as they need a blue chip defensive player.

                Barkley and Chubb are the 2 pieces that can swing this draft in a whole nother stratosphere. More so than the QB's, those 2 players will determine how this draft flows. Both could go anywhere from #1-#3 and make teams scramble.

                This years draft is going to be fun and yet complex to watch.
                FA, especially the FA QBs will dictate the first 5 choices in the draft.
                Do the first 5 Drafting teams sign a FA QB before the draft?
                and wont teams like the browns and jets be expected to do BOTH !
                Giants, Both, Cards both,Broncos of course BOTH.
                Vikings ?
                1-4 QBs could go in the first 5 picks, all depending on what happens in free agency first.

                  None of the QB's in the draft are a lock to be great. And Denver has been linked to Cousins too much for them not to go after him.
                  "go after him"
                  not the same as signing him.
                  Not enough $$$ for JFE to woo the CUZ.

                    That seems petty and personal. Should the league allow a commissioner and an owner to go down this road?

                    • Cousins is a back-up. Let's only give him $20 mil.

                        I really doubt that Goodell would perform any action that wasn't sanctioned by at least the core power owners. It seems the worst thing that an owner can do is act independently and contrary to the wishes of the ownership majority.

                        • We didn't low ball Manning, we offered a good contract to Broz (and would have matched Houston).

                              The article starts off like this "With the support of many N.F.L. owners...."
