Champ Bailey, Mike Adams receive $1.5 million worth of roster bonuses
Some Bronco players did better on the fifth day of the league year than others.
Lost in the Elvis Dumervil fax fiasco was the Broncos did pay out roster bonuses of $1.25 million to cornerback Champ Bailey and $250,000 to safety Mike Adams. The roster bonuses clicked in for Bailey and Adams on the fifth day of the league year (which started at 2 p.m. March 15) — or the exact same moment the Broncos terminated Dumervil’s contract to avoid the guarantee on his $12 million salary.
Good catch by Klis on Mike Adams. While $250,000 is a monetary flesh wound to the Broncos, money talks--or at least in this case, it whispers.
