    2014 Salary Cap is $126.3M. It will be interesting to see how they handle all these 2014 FA's contracts long-term.

That's why Flacco's deal was so huge and kicks in during 2015. However, that won't be the case. It is now projected that the salary cap will be largely flat until 2016.
    I think it's obvious we will let certain people go. I'd be shocked if we try to keep everyone.

    I said the Broncos would cut Dumervil and McGahee before it happened (which a blind monkey could see).

    So put that in your vaporizer and inhale.

    SPOTRAC Tidbits:
    [LIST][*]First, they don't even have Kuper's contract right. They have it at six years and have it with a cap hit of 6 million dollars. Kuper isn't getting 6 million next year. Pretty sure he's one and done, or gets very little next season. Didn't they redo his crap pre-season?
    Kuper is right. The Broncos only redid Kuper's contract for this season. If he's cut this offseason, his $1.83M in remaining dead money goes on the 2014 cap.

With the totals listed, (including Kuper and Champ at huge cap numbers they won't be at) -- it puts Denver at ~ 112 million committed. You can probably chop 10 million off that in savings from a Bailey retirement or restructure and getting rid of Kuper.
    [*]I doubt Dreessen is going to be sticking around at 3.33 million a year. I don't ever see him catch a ball.
    If the Broncos cut Kuper, and Dreessen, they will have about $21M to spend on Decker, Bailey, Phillips, Woodyard, Beadles, and Adams (or other SS).

Getting Harris back cheap is probably going to happen, which gives us room to go after DRC long-term if we'd like.
    I think Harris will get a 2nd round tender at $2.1M. DRC will count as a $7.1M cap hit next year if he's still on the roster 5 days after the SB.

    Dead money is about $4.5M including Kuper/Dreessen.

    The front office is going to have to earn their keep....make up for this past disaster of an offseason they had!

    We need to keep our offense together and acquire the talent for a top 5 defense. They can do it. If they can sign DRC/Wood/Harris....get a little luck with Von and add a couple playmakers in the middle...we'll be good to go.

    I agree that beadles probably shouldn't be resigned, and next year's free agency will be tough. Things change a lot in a year though.
    You might be on to something. If you look at DRC's salary on spotrac, his 2014 salary is crossed out, but I know the club has the option to keep him.

    Knowshon's is the same way:

    I wonder what the correct answer is. Would be so nice if the Broncos could still keep that option. It is listed as $2.065M

    Money is going to be thin this offseason. I think they should let Beadles walk. Hopefully the other guys will take hometown discounts. 2015 cap looks nightmarish.

    Wesley Woodyard interview on 102.3 -


    When asked who is the most important FA to re-sign?

    "Knowshon is the key. Defenses get so pissed off when he jumps up fast. Gotta keep Knowshon and Ball together. Need that 1-2 punch."

    At first he said "Decker", because he didn't know the last year of Knowshon's deal was voided. "Gotta keep that Offense together."

    I judge broncos games by the game day threads... there was a lot of meltdowns.. you sir are correct
