  • Agent's Take: How your team structures deals and why it matters

    Denver Broncos: The Broncos primarily structure their most lucrative contracts with modest signing bonuses, a first-year roster bonus a few days after signing and salary guarantees in the early years of the deals. Most of the guarantees after the first year of a contract are conditional guarantees that allow the Broncos to exit these deals without adverse cap consequences. Aqib Talib's six-year, $57 million contract containing a $5 million signing is a prime example. Since only $11.5 million of his $25.5 million in guarantees is fully guaranteed at signing (all in 2014) the Broncos can release Talib before the third day of the 2015 league year when his 2015 base salary becomes fully guaranteed if he is a disappointment or the off-the-field issues that plagued him in Tampa Bay reoccur. There would be $4 million in dead money (a charge for a player no longer on the roster) but the Broncos would gain $3 million in cap space despite paying Talib $12 million for just one season in Denver.

    Not much going on, cool article on how teams operate the salary cap.

    In before Dud says Den is cheating the cap.

    John Elway, Mike Sullivan, Matt Russell(Idiot) & Tom Heckert(Dumb ass) do a great job with the roster and cap.
    Now... if some of them would just get sauced at home.

        That is a stupid article. Lonestar says Denver has no cap room or money.
