    Normally I want the players to get their money but in James case it seems like he has gotten a lot of money for no contribution. I expect the Broncos to negotiate a buyout have him be gone.

        $19M in dead money, $13M dead money if cut after June 1st. But since since he was working out off site we don't have to pay him $10M of that if I understand it right.

          Wow. And since it was away from the facility, he could lose out on his $10 million.
          Make that 20 mil..... per Adam Schefter.....

          "Broncos' OT Ja'Wuan James’ contract tolled last year, so he was playing under his 2020 contract this year, which had $10 million guaranteed for skill and injury, and another $10 million in 2021. So it’s a $20 million potential torn Achilles injury today."

            That sucks for him, too bad about the injury.

            Do we now insert Meinerz as a starting G/C and start Risner at RT?

                  Well we had chances to pick a right tackle. There were some very good ones available.

                    This could be a blessing in disguise!! Like Houshmazode said, kick Risner over to RT and just save that money.....for I don't know someone like Aaron Rodgers

                      I am sure the Broncos are talking to the tackles who are free agents - Dennis Kelly, Mitchell Schwartz (injury status unknown), Villanueva(though a left tackle he has played for Munchak), and there are a few others.

                        Can't really blame them for not though with how much money is already allocated to that position

                          Villanueva already signed with the Ravens.

                            Worst free agent signing in franchise history? Just unreal.

                                Broncos haven't drafted an offensive tackle since Bolles in 2017, with the intention of that guy being strictly a tackle, not someone who was a tackle in college that kicked inside to guard like Risner.

                                That's four straight drafts of not taking an offensive tackle.

                                It's unbelievable that we ignored that position that many years in a row.
