Agent's Take: Did Broncos mortgage future with spending spree?
Conservatively, the Broncos should head into next off-season with at least $30 million of cap room unless core players are given contract extensions or the projected growth in the cap isn’t accurate.
After finding a soft free agent market, two key players from Denver's SB run landed with new teams on Thursday.
Running back Knowshon Moreno agreed terms with Miami, while defensive end Shaun Phillips is headed to Tennessee.
Schadenfreude. It’s impolite to take pleasure from the travails of others.
It’s also hard to pretend that I have any particular sympathy for the Raiders, and free agency is showing why.
Oakland was going to give Dennis Allen and Reggie McKenzie two years to make changes; this may not be the way to prove that.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Everyday, there's some funny news out of Oakland.
The latest? Jared Allen took less money from the Bears than the Raiders would have given him.
Granted, this report comes with nothing better than an AAV ($9M per year), and no talk of guaranteed money, which is, of course, everything.
But hey, we'll never let the absence of facts get in the way of an opportunity to laugh at the Raiders' expense.
Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! It's a particularly rough time for Bills fans, and our thoughts are sincerely with them.

At their annual meeting in Florida, NFL owners have passed a few rule changes, tabled a few others until later in the spring, and nixed a few others.
Most significantly, the replay review process has been expanded to allow referees to consult with officials in New York.
The goal here, of course, is to prevent disasters like the latest from Jeff Triplette, which came last season at the Colts' expense.
-Q: How focused are you on matching up against the good QBs in your division?
-ALLEN: We have a quarterback now that’s on par with the quarterbacks in this division.
Granted, this tends to happen when in the employ of the Oakland Raiders...
Jared Allen has finally found a new home. Surprisingly - and thankfully for the rest of the league - it won't be Seattle.
Rather, the former Vikings and Chiefs pass rusher is headed to Chicago on a reported four-year, $32M deal that includes $15.5M in full guarantees.
Von Miller likely to have fifth-year option picked up by Broncos
