Good Morning, Broncos fans! The salary cap jump to $133M is, of course, a great development for teams and players alike.
This is especially so for players like Eric Decker and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who are set to hit free agency in ten days.
In a perfect world, all players would immediately reap the benefits of the increase.
From a team perspective, the change would mean the Broncos could sign two or three more significant players than they previously could have.
According to Over the Cap, Denver now has $19.44M with which to work. They can easily double that space by cutting the contracts of Champ Bailey ($10M in savings), Chris Kuper ($4.084M), Jacob Tamme ($3M), and Joel Dreessen ($2.5M), if they're so inclined.
Pending free agent wideout Jeremy Maclin got the prove-it deal he wanted from the Eagles, as the two sides have agreed to a one-year deal.
Maclin, who will turn 26 in May, suffered a season-ending ACL injury during training camp last year. He reportedly got $3.5M in guarantees for 2014, with a maximum value of $6M.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Right from the get go, it was known that Denver had competition for the services of one D'Qwell Jackson.
We already knew that Jackson was visiting with Tennessee and may meet with Minnesota after his Monday stop at Dove Valley.
It now appears Arizona and Washington may be added to the linebacker's growing travel itinerary.
Jason La Canfora reported on Thursday that seven teams had contacted Jackson following his release by Cleveland.
According to Jason La Canfora, free agent linebacker D'Qwell Jackson is set to visit the Titans and Broncos in the coming days, with a meeting with the Vikings possibly to follow.
Cleveland released their longtime leader on Wednesday after eight seasons with the team, rather than pay him a $4M roster bonus due on March 15.
The 30-year-old former second-rounder was also set to make a salary of $3.93M this season.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Derek Wolfe spoke Wednesday about the frightening health scare that eventually ended his 2013 season.
The details are even worse than we'd all previously known.
Wolfe, who just celebrated his 24th birthday on Monday, says he was unconscious for 26 hours after the seizure-like episode he endured on the team bus.
Months later, doctors apparently still don't know what caused Wolfe's spine problems, although they suspect his preseason injury at Seattle has something to do with it.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Given the drama of the Dumervil debacle, it's at times easy to forget how busy Denver's 2013 offseason was otherwise.
One of the most interesting rumors involved the Broncos potentially trading for and then signing then-Jets corner Darrelle Revis.
Eventually, Revis was dealt to Tampa Bay, where he got a very strange contract - $16M/year in cash and cap, with no guarantees.
Happy Tuesday, friends. I had some time over the weekend to look at some combine footage, and I’ve generally been thinking about the go-forward state of affairs for the Broncos.
I thought we’d do a little bit of rosterbation, and that I’d also share some thoughts about the draft class.
Can we take ‘em to the bridge? Yeah, let’s kick it old school one time. Ready…BEGIN!!
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Poor Mike Pettine.
As he's rightly pointed out, he is fortunate to be one of just 32 people currently employed as an NFL head coach.
But even upon his hiring, it was very public news that he wasn't the Browns' first choice.
And a month later, we're still learning about Cleveland's coaching search dalliances.
We'll do our best to track the Broncos' pre-draft meetings and visits. If you see anyone missing, please drop us an email with a source!
