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.
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.
Denver announced the signing of eight more players to future contracts on Wednesday, bringing their total number to 13.
Joining the collection of Browncos will be LB Jamar Chaney, T Ramon Harewood, LB Jerrell Harris, TE Jameson Konz, S Charles Mitchell, TE Cameron Morrah, CB Jerome Murphy, and RB Jerodis Williams.
The Broncos made a handful of roster moves on Tuesday, including ending the seasons of Derek Wolfe and Chris Harris by placing them on IR.
Harris suffered a torn ACL on Sunday, while Wolfe has missed Denver's past six games after having suffered seizure-like symptoms on the team bus.
Denver's divisional round win over San Diego came with a heavy price, as corner Chris Harris suffered a torn left ACL.
Harris left in the third quarter with knee and ankle injuries, and was replaced in incompetent fashion by Quentin Jammer, who allowed three receptions in five targets for 95 yards and a touchdown, according to PFF.
An MRI on Monday morning confirmed the injury to the stalwart third-year corner.
In order to create room on the roster for the newly signed DE Jeremy Mincey, Denver waived center J.D. Walton on Tuesday.
Walton started 36 straight games straight out of college, but his career was derailed by a gruesome leg injury suffered in September 2012.
Jacksonville had cut Mincey last week over repeated issues of tardiness and violation of team rules.
The 6-4, 265-pounder was drafted by the Patriots in 2006, and played under Jack Del Rio for 4.5 seasons with the Jaguars.
As expected, the Broncos have placed Kevin Vickerson on IR and replaced him with a veteran free agent.
Denver has signed DT Sione Fua (6-1, 310), a third-year player drafted by Carolina in the third round (97th overall) of the 2011 Draft.
The Stanford alum has 22 total tackles and one forced fumble in 27 career games (12 starts).
