    If I’m not mistaken, the money they get this year is an advance that gets paid back next season.

    If a player doesn’t make the team next year, is he going to have to give the money back?

    I would imagine that most teams would just let it slide, but what happens when a team doesn’t let slide?

The starting O-Line will be the best five shuffled to their best spots. If Dalton vacated Left Guard, there is plenty of interior depth to step in. Schlottmann and Morris have some experience. Wilkinson and Muti are not available at the moment. Time will tell about them.

    Think I'd rather see Dalton at RT before Wilkinson, Rodgers or Anderson, but that's just me.
    Yeah. Risner at RT has to merit some serious consideration. I don't know what the process is for someone getting activated from the PUP or NFI list. I see that multiple sources have now reported that both of these guys have since been activated. It would be pretty amazing if losing James ended up making our line better.

    Doesnt he opt out every year lol. How many players will opt out if they're on a bubble to make the roster.

    Agreed. When I saw the thread, I was like “of course he did”. Can’t fault the guy considering the state of things, but it just figured.

    Thanks. Good to know.

    I think James is one of the few players whose motives for opting out deserve to be questioned.

    He’s known for milking injuries.

    His love of the game is questionable.

    Hopefully the Broncos have someone ready to step in. It’s not like they should have counted on James to stay healthy in the first place.

    This is somewhat promising I still say web sign Glen or Veldheer cheap and go get Logan Ryan with our new cap space

    His days in the NFL are likely done. In February he was arrested in Texas with 156.9 pounds of weed in his car. He's facing up to 20 years in prison.

    Ah, yeah.. sorry I wasn't replying to your post, although rereading it kinda seemed that way, just making a statement in general. I don't blame any player for opting out, and I'd consider it myself if I was a player. I mean I've opted out of going into the office for the last 5 months in order to protect my health and football players can't work from home.

    This one just leaves a bad taste in my mouth because it's pretty apparent this guy isn't really interested in playing. So did he really opt out because of COVID or does he just not want to play?

    I should have seen this coming. He is the definition of an 'opt-out' player. smh.

    When players opt-out there are some comments around the net about how much respect we should give them, pfffff.... respect for what ? Sitting on their butts for a year when they haven't played for months while everyone else carries on with life and goes to work. I respect the players who get on with life, not ones driven by fear, they look pathetic and lazy to me.

    Perhaps the smart move now would be to go out and sign Logan Ryan.

    I know I know, so much money dedicated to defense isn’t fair but we know Elway isn’t going out and breaking the bank for Cordy Glen or Jared Veldheer.

    James has been a complete failure of a signing and not because of any "false narrative". After two teams now, it is time to realize he is one of those players looking for a reason not to play instead of looking for one to get back out there. And cutting him (buy out) will suck because it comes with a $6M dead cap cost.

    Decision is made. Wish him and his family luck.

    On to the problem at hand. How do they replace him? Free agent cupboard is barren, even for a backup let alone a starter. Trade? Does anyone know if his cap money is now usable for the season? Having his $13M would be helpful.
    My Sediment Exactly Unreal .
