2014 Denver Broncos Free Agency Primer

Over the next month or so, we'll be devoting plenty of space to discussing in detail the cap realities Denver faces, and their options for dealing with them.

The 2014 League Year and free agency begin at 4pm ET on March 11, which is just five weeks from today.

Let's take a look at the team's pending free agents, and share some thoughts on what the Broncos might do.

Over the Cap estimates that with 51 players currently under contract (although several of them on cheap future contracts), Denver enters the offseason with about $12.9M to work with.

DRC: They wanted it way more than us

Good Evening, Broncos fans. Earlier today, we noted a couple of telling quotes from the SB-winning Seahawks.

Here's one from the Broncos, and it's far from your typical "they were better than us today" line. Here's what Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie had to say:

We've got to give credit to Seattle, you could tell they wanted it way more than us. They were not going to take a loss. They definitely came out and punched us around.

Dayummm.

This is not a call for John Fox to be fired

As always when a season ends, we're faced with a slew of questions. Today, the biggest one is What in the f#$% happened last night?

Not to be too self-aware here, but our regular readers might expect this to be a rant about John Fox's decision making.

It's not.

Granted, I'm still just as baffled as I was last night by the decision to punt from the Seattle 39 while down 29-0 in the second half of a single-elimination football game.

Champ wants back, suggests he’s open to a move to safety

One couldn't help but wonder whether Champ Bailey would have retired with a Broncos victory on Sunday night.

Well, he doesn't yet have the opportunity to walk away on top ala John Elway.

Of course, the next questions are whether he'll be back with the Broncos in 2014, and if so, where he'll be playing, and for how much money.

Broncos will pick 31st in each round of 2014 Draft

Following their embarrassing loss in SB 48, the Broncos will pick 31st in each round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

For the first time since we can recall, Denver heads into the offseason with a full complement of picks. In fact, the Broncos have not (yet) dealt away any of their future picks.

And after a 2013 Draft that provided very little impact in year one, perhaps they'll even use one of those picks to find a better option than Paris Lenon or Keith Brooking at middle linebacker?

Gut Reaction: Super Bowl 48 - Broncos vs Seahawks

There’s a lot of emotion swirling inside any Broncos fan right now. A loss like this one feels raw, exhausting, and most of all, personal.

After all, we’ve been with this team for 19 games now. We’ve watched them set records, only to fall well short in the biggest game of the year.

But let’s face it, today was never meant to be the Broncos’ day. We need to accept that fact. The first play of the game was a self-induced safety. The first play of the second half was something I can only describe as completely bizarre.

But even without such alien abductions, the Seahawks were the better team.

Final Score: Seahawks 43, Broncos 8

Denver's historic season came to a thudding halt on Sunday night, with a thoroughly humiliating 43-8 (Gamebook) loss to the Seahawks in Super Bowl 48.

In a game that called to mind the franchise's first four trips to the big game, the Broncos' record-shattering offense opened with a safety, gave the ball away another four times, and mustered up just one late and meaningless touchdown.

The game also bore a resemblance to the 40-10 result of the teams' preseason meeting, when the Seahawks used turnovers and big plays to romp.

You Got Served: A Super Bowl ten pack

Happy Super Bowl Sunday, friends. I was going to kick it old-school, and do a Digesting the Seahawks article, but others have pretty much covered that ground by now.

Instead, I’m going to just get a little scattershot with it, and fire off some quick Super Bowl thoughts.

Follow me across the jump, and we’ll get it going.
