    At the time Brown was at LT for the Patriots before signing with the Raiders so despite playing RT the majority of his career James was given that title on a technicality.
    I guess that might add some clarity for the distinction in highest paid lineman, and RT

    • How about we all just agree to "James is one of the highest paid RTs" in the game.

      And IMO a waste of money that the Broncos are now stuck with for the next two years unless they take a pretty big dead cap hit. Not like they can get any assets back, he is untradeable.

      We can only hope he can find a way to return healthy and mentally ready to prove himself after two years of disappointment. Becuase with the contract the way it is, the Broncos are likely going to have to start him at RT next year.

            Nonsense, spilt milk DRAFT SOME TACKLES and cut him him. It is what it is and he is a colassal waste of money. Get him off this team and out of this locker room.

            • I posted this in the Demar Dotson thread but I guess it goes here too:

So they might have been able to cover it with the money saved on Heuerman. Which would mean they could rollover James' money into next year and get James at, essentially, no cap hit for the year. Or cut him and take the hit with no worries.
              If all $13 MIL can be rolled over wouldn't we be getting this leeway?

              • To be clear I was playing with the table they have set up at the Over The Cap website and when I punched in James as a post June 1st cut he came up as $13 MIL dead money with no cap savings. So that's why I was thinking the $13 MIL rollover would erase him from our cap if cut.

                  In order to get the least expensive long-term starters, drafting is probably the best approach.
