Welker will most likely be gone next year so that's a bit more room.

      Plus, isn't the cap figure going up next year?
      When I read the part of the article about dead money I thought back to the Shanahan years and thought so what's the problem we are in great shape with the dead cap money.

        There is very little under the sun that a good enema will not fix.

        We should start with Washington DC.

          . Shanny at the end there was the king of dead money deals. Oh that was a nightmare.

            I don't think it would be that out of line to ask Manning to help out a little. Elway has made a heroic effort putting this roster together, and Manning is both a huge contributor and the major beneficiary.

              The funny part is SoCal is always crucifying Bowlen for being cheap when in fact Shanahan was so bad at contracts for washed up players we always had so much dead money we could not spend for better players.

                The Thomasx2 deals will kick in starting next season so they are entirely irrelevant for this years cap. I do imagine the Broncos will make cap adjustments anyway to free up some salary cap to have in season flexibility but also to be able to carry over some salary cap space for next season.
                It's been widely reported they are trying to sign DT to a new contract before training camp and maybe JT too.

                  Yes. On paper it was always a 2-year deal that voided after the SB. It let them spread out his signing bonus' cap hit.

                    So was he under contract for this season?

                    Or was it automatically voided and always intended to be a one year deal. If so seems like cap manipulation if not out right violation.

                        It was always going to automatically void after the super bowl. The Broncos wanted to spread his signing bonus over 2 years even though he was only going to play for one on that contract.

                          That sounds illegal.

                              Yes, my mistake. Thanks.

                                We'll lose some guys like every team but if we can keep two of Knighton/Harris/Franklin/Moore after JT/DT, i think we'll be alright.

                                The cap is supposed to go up 10 mil next year and be 150 mil by 2016 i believe.
