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

    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.

    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...

    Cap friendly deals with every one of those players saves 30 million.

    (Not even mentioning the guys that will be leaving)

    Quit worrying.

    Not really. If it was so easy to manipulate then Tennessee would not have had to purge the likes of Samari Rolle, Andre Dyson, Derrick Mason, etc. to get under the cap. Denver still had very little money to work with in 2005 but Shanahan did a very good job of getting the "Browncos" on the team. However, opportunites like that do not happen that often and I doubt Denver will have as successful an offseason next year as they did this year. I doubt they will have a big falloff either and become bad, but they are not going to work some miracles like they did this year.

    My feeling. If all goes well tomorrow and two weeks from tomorrow, Rod, Elam and Nalan will retire on a great note. Will be sad, but still, they ended at the top if all goes well. We will lose Courtney Brown because the others have proven they are pretty damn good. We will keep Gerrard and Ekuban. Lynch will remain for one more year then retire. This is Denvers shot here in the next 15 days. Next year we will be ok, but I'm predicting a 10-6 season. nothing like this year. We brought in a ton of potential talent (not according to all) but still talent. Denver will go after a WR and DL with the first two picks since our CB are solidified for the next 7-10 years possibly. LB are just fine. Not sure if Price is back, but the sting might not be so bad if he gets a ring this year and goes to another team.

    Denver always finds a way to make the cap work. Not to mention, I am sure many players will be willing to restructure existing contracts to keep a team intact that is a superbowl contender. These guys want the ring
