    Donald Stephenson agrees to restructure contract

    https://www.google.com/amp/profootba...h-broncos/amp/

    I'm glad he chose to do this, by doing this he's helping the team and also going to get a shot at the left tackle position.

    I can't believe we're keeping him. God help us. The new line coach better be a miracle worker.

    Wow, frustrating. I guess it's just my annoyance from last season that wants to see him cut. We gave ourselves a pretty good out if we decide to cut him later.

    Exactly.

    It will be a new season with a new coaching staff giving our offensive linemen a new start. I think we may be surprised at players like Stephenson, Schofield (with another year in the fire), and a guy like Sambrailo who is finally healthy enough to get into the weight room.

    This doesn't surprise me. Stephenson wasn't going to make a significant difference in salary cap space whether we cut him now or the last roster cut. Having him to compete in TC/preseason makes sense at this time. If he has the ability to capture a starting spot he is now in a situation to show it this summer or get cut ... 2 million is at stake for him.

    I'm cool with it if he's making something near the vet minimum lol. I think our oline coaching under Kubiak's staff was absolutely horrid, and there should be a big improvement in that at least. If we sign another decent vet or draft a good rookie who looks like a starter in TC I would bet he's still gone by the end of preseason.

    I wonder if this affects DEN's draft strategy?

    His entire salary for 2016 was guaranteed already. This means he's willing to work with the team and make it so he only makes half of his salary if he gets cut.

    If we end up cutting him, we save $2M because of this restructure.

    OK, good, thank you for the explanation. I was indisposed earlier and on my phone when I saw a blurb about this. It was all I could do to refrain making a Darth Vader melodramatic "Nooooooo....." gesture when I saw this. Now I'm good with rolling into TC with the guy.

    If anything, it shows he's committed to the team. If he didn't restructure, and we cut him, he could go get another contract and get money on top of the $4M we owe him this season. Hopefully he'll improve.
