    We have 26 mil in cap space now. I remember it bring more

    • The Wilson move was a masterful stroke. Combined with the Von trade it does not even hurt as much as it could have. We still have a 2nd and 2 thirds this year.

        Part of the $12 million in cap space created hasn't been realized yet because it includes what the first and second round picks would cost against the cap this year. So in all it will be $12 million, but it's not there yet.

          Having that extra cap space should help in FA.

The new TV contracts kick in for 2023 so we'll be seeing big jumps in the cap in the next few years, I'm guessing they'll use that to ensure Wilson's contract grows with the cap.
            It's great to have solid front office in place from top to bottom. I really like how Paton and company manage the salary cap.

                Don't forget the two 4ths, #113 & #114.

                  Maybe we can sign Von and then trade him for another couple of picks.

                  • I was just thinking about us being a "have" team, which I mentioned elsewhere, but not only because we now have a legit starting QB, but because in my mind, we have a very legit GM as well.

                    Just like you need confidence and faith in your QB, same applies with your GM. If your QB is pretty good but makes poor decisions now and again, it can be concerning. Same goes for the GM. GMs can not make many errors, because they can be very costly. Plus they need to be visionary, understand finances, and strengths and weaknesses of their team, and have a roadmap and actions items that will ensure they have the right resources throughout their team/organization in the short and long term. There's more to it then that of course.

                    But from what I see, after careful assessment, is a GM in Denver that is worthy of my trust and support. It's becoming a little repetitive, but he had a great first draft. And a solid trade that involved Von (who we could actually get back and keep the draft picks). And then the big move for Wilson. I'm giving him a solid "A" in year one.

                    So instead of hoping we select certain players in FA and the draft, this year I feel more inclined to sit back and watch what Paton does, rather than expect specific acquisitions. This year for sure. Just get out some popcorn and a cold drink and watch it unravel.

                    This is going to be fun folks, and we've only just begun!

                      Plenty of ammo to trade up in the draft.

                      • I wanted Von back, but not at 6 years for $120M.

                              Me too. Talk about an excellent ILB.

                                IMO, if we land him, our D is close to being set. We can add more in FA, and definitely in the draft. Dbacks, another pass rusher. But absolutely solid!

                                That leaves a little O fixer upper, including a right tackle, and maybe a weapon. Again, the draft alone will get us there.

                                This is the last big FA move I am hoping for, and anything else is another shot of whipping cream on top.
