    This year freed up a bunch of dead money for us, guys like the defensive linemen (drawing a blank on his name) that got in the fight at the IHOP and messed up his wrist.

      Gardener, and Griese for that matter, both are no longer on our books...Shanny worked hard in teh offseason to make sure we didn't have dead money.

      Again, if we don't pick up Courtney Brown's option, that's $8 million (?) right there...

        If a player is good, and wanted by the team, he will make a bundle on a restructure, they get paid now, not later, and the bonus is about the only guaranteed thing an NFL contract has to offer. The bonus is spread out over years which reduces the cap hit.

        Everybody thinks that the Bronco's are shelling out a ton of cash each year but the truth is we have one of the lowest payrolls in the NFL. We do play cap games to keep the public perception favorable but the truth is that we haven't been out of whack since 2000, we learned our lessons from that experience.

        Things are not always as they appear.

        We have a system that rewards "company men" and does not reward malcontents.

          And I think we are 20+ million over this time of year almost every year.

            Good point, for us it's "standard operating procedure." If we were 20 million under the cap each year the players would get greedy.
