  • Offseason Cap Game Thread

    I realize this is about two months too early since we are clearly going to be still celebrating our Super Bowl, however this is a pretty cool website that lets you be the GM by signing, extending, and cutting Broncos to fit under the cap.

    Year Total Liabilities Salary Cap Cap Room
    2014 $119,366,762 $133,485,990 $14,119,228

    Here is sort of how I see it playing out:

    Offense (Highlighted are unrestricted free agents)

    Player Action
    Zac Dysert QB Keep
    Peyton Manning Keep
    Brock Osweiler Keep
    C.J. Anderson Keep
    Montee Ball RB Keep
    Ronnie Hillman Cut
    Knowshon Moreno Re-sign
    Andre Caldwell Allow to leave-replace in draft
    Eric Decker Re-sign
    Trindon Holliday Keep (If restricted and gets offer let go)
    Demaryius Thomas Keep
    Wes Welker WR Keep
    Joel Dreessen Cut
    Virgil Green Keep
    Jacob Tamme Keep
    Julius Thomas Extend - to valuable not to lock up
    Dan Koppen Cut - Draft a replacement (Richburg)
    Manny Ramirez Keep
    Steve Vallos Keep
    Zane Beadles Keep
    Chris Kuper Allow to leave - Backup, often injured
    Louis Vasquez Keep
    Ryan Clady Keep
    Chris Clark Keep
    Orlando Franklin Keep
    Winston Justice Allow to leave

    Cap Savings: $7,047,122


    Robert Ayers Re-sign
    Malik Jackson Keep
    Shaun Phillips Re-sign
    Quanterus Smith Keep
    Derek Wolfe Keep
    Sione Fua Keep
    Terrance Knighton Keep
    Mitch Unrein Keep
    Kevin Vickerson Keep
    Sylvester Williams Keep
    Jeremy Mincey Allow to leave
    Stewart Bradley Cut
    Nate Irving Keep
    Steven Johnson Keep
    Paris Lenon Allow to leave
    Brandon Marshall Cut
    Lerentee McCray Keep
    Von Miller Keep
    Danny Trevathan Keep
    Wesley Woodyard Allow to leave
    Champ Bailey Cut or restructure - simply not worth 10 mill
    Tony Carter Keep
    Chris Harris Re-sign
    Quentin Jammer Allow to leave
    DRC Re-sign
    Kayvon Webster Keep
    Mike Adams Re-sign
    Omar Bolden Cut
    David Bruton Keep
    Quinton Carter Keep
    Michael Huff Allow to leave
    Duke Ihenacho Keep
    Rahim Moore Keep

    Only 2 Broncos on defense are not free agents of some kind that I am getting rid of, Bolden and Bailey. I know people will flame me for Bailey but he is not worth the money we are paying him, he needs to take a pay cut or we cut him.

    Money Saved: $10 +

    Re-sign (priority)
    1. DRC - Legit #1 CB
    2. Harris - Great Slot CB
    3. Decker - Great Numbers .. how much is Manning?
    4. Moreno - Great season but Ball can carry the load I think
    5. Phillips - Great compliment to Miller
    6. Beadles - Solid
    7. Ayers - Solid until hurt

    1. MLB - Replace Woodyard. Dangerous cause a rookie makes the calls, move up if you have to.
    2. CB - You can never have to many CB's plus Champ is gone
    3. DE - We need pressure (sign Jared Allen could change this)
    4. CB - CB's are worth their weight in gold these days
    5. C - Fellow Ram Weston Richburg is our C for the next 10 years
    6 - 12. Best Available
