  • Broncos have nearly 12m in cap space.

    Broncos | Team has approximately $4.5 million left for signings
    Mon, 13 Mar 2006 20:41:27 -0800

    Jeff Legwold, of the Rocky Mountain News, reports the Denver Broncos have about $4.57 million left in workable salary cap space to sign a front-line free agent. The team currently sits at $90.2 million against the $102 million salary cap. That includes the team's recent re-signings of RB Ron Dayne, DL Gerard Warren, and TE Mike Leach. The team will need to make sure there is space to sign players they pick on draft day.


    The number 4.57 is derived from 12m minus--draft picks expected cost. If you deal any picks obv that number changes.

      denver broncos
      Free agents give Denver the brushoff
      Lewis, Carter opt for other deals
      By Bill Williamson
      Denver Post Staff Writer



      The Broncos entered free agency with two outside targets, both of whom were to hit town Monday. One never got to Denver, the other quickly departed. Both will be playing elsewhere.

      In a hasty turn of events, the Broncos lost out on Baltimore running back Jamal Lewis and San Francisco defensive end/linebacker Andre Carter.

      Lewis, who was scheduled to arrive in Denver in the afternoon, agreed to terms to remain in Baltimore early Monday morning. Lewis signed a three-year, $26 million deal - more than Denver was willing to bid.

      Lewis, who said he was being courted to Denver by his college roommate Al Wilson, said he was serious about Denver before Baltimore upped its offer.

      Though Lewis never hit Colorado on Monday, Carter did. But not for long. Carter, the son of former Broncos defensive tackle Rubin Carter, visited Washington on Sunday. With no offer from the Redskins, he traveled to Denver.

      However, Washington, the biggest spender in the early phases of free agency, then showered a six-year, $30 million deal on the 49ers pass rusher. It was enough for Carter, who was born in Denver, to eschew his roots.

      The Broncos, who have more than $8 million in salary cap room and about $5 million to $6 million to spend on free agency, have been seeking an impact player on each side of the ball.

      Among the few remaining are two players long connected to Denver: receiver Terrell Owens and defensive end John Abraham. Owens will be released by the Eagles in the next 48 hours and Abraham is touring potential teams the Jets may trade him to. The Broncos likely will visit with Abraham this week.

      has been connected to the Broncos since he visited with coach Mike Shanahan on Jan. 30. He is the sole remaining established offensive playmaker on the market. Buffalo receiver Eric Moulds could emerge as a candidate if the Bills cut him.
      With Lewis out of the mix, Denver likely will try to address its tailback needs in the draft. The best remaining free-agent running back is Seattle backup Maurice Morris. Denver has the 22nd and 29th picks in the first round, and team sources said they likely will take a back to compete with incumbents Ron Dayne and Tatum Bell. There is some thought that LenDale White of USC and Chatfield High School might be available when the Broncos pick.

      If the Broncos are interested in Abraham at defensive end, they may have to bid against other teams - notably Seattle and Cleveland. If Denver passes on Abraham, it could try to sign Kalimba Edwards or another defensive end at a bargain price or wait for the draft.

      Footnote

      Expect special-teams captain Keith Burns to officially sign when he returns to Denver.

        here is the quote from the actual article.
        .....Having entered free agency Friday night at about $90.2 million against the $102 million salary cap, the Broncos have significantly less room after re-signing defensive tackle Gerard Warren, running back Ron Dayne and tight end/long snapper Mike Leach over the weekend.
        ************************************************** ***********************************************
        This should be read to mean that there was $11.8 mil. available before last weekends moves......... and $4.57 left after the signings. The $4.57 mil. left would be the total available for free agents AND draft picks. The Denver Post has a different figure....see my last post.....

          Well, at any rate, it's alot better than I thought it'd be.

          We actually have the space to sign our 2 first round picks!

            i expect us to restructure some of our contracts soon, that should free up roughly 4-6 million.

              I think we've already got most of that out of the way.

                    I say we make a package of our dfraft picks and move up in the draft. Package our #29 and 3rd rounder to move up atleast 5-6 spots to ensure we get Lendale.
