    I just hope and pray that after this years success, the Browncos realize what they have been given by playing here and can re-negotiate some. Not only them, but other players on the team also.

    other good news

    Besides the fact that the 27 is representative of next year's salary without adjustments (and I would expect several!!) We have quite a bit of YOUNG talent. Only glaringly old farts are Rod, Lynch, Nalen, Elam, Pryce and Nalen may retire (and we have a couple guys behind him) Rod and definitely John would restructure to continue playing on a SB caliber team and as much as I like Jason he won't be the only kicker available in Free agency. My guess is if Trevor stays he in one of the "several" adjustments I spoke of.
    And we have tons of draft picks as pointed out above.

    But out of all this the one thing that makes me very happy is we are done with those god-awful dead-money days we were going thru. I'm fairly certain that we are in the last year of having our salary cap hosed by the likes of Wussy Griese. So any perceived issues with salary cap are manageable. The player and the team have to reach an equitable solution or the team has to look elsewhere.

    The other good news is that the Broncos are in a decent position to improve themselves through the draft.

    They not only have two first round picks, but have a lot of picks throughout the draft.

In this article, http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/9173102, Pete Prisco says the Broncos are most likely to fall from its current success because it has to cut 27 million dollars? However, I have not heard this and if this is true who is draining our salary cap? Have any of you heard that the Broncos will be over 27 million dollars over the cap?
    Yes, it's been talked about quite a bit on this forum.

    I don't know the exact numbers, but three or four of the D-line, including price, will jump from making between 900k and 1.5m to 2-3m. That is what the problem is. We have a lot of players whose salary goes up 2-4million next year. The hope is that these players will renegotiate, take a signing bonus (spread over multiple years for cap purposes) and offset it with a lower salary, but it is possible we could lose price and a couple other starting D-linement. Nalen's salary is supposed to be too high to keep, and he has talked about retirment. Will he come back at a lower salary?

    The only good news is that the Broncos have been 20-30 million over the cap quite a few seasons and generally seem to be able to get the math worked out without losing too many players.
