    Here's hoping we pay him the extra million.

    My adopted Bronco is Chris Kuper. Huzzah!

      this makes me very confident. he took less money to play here, under that contract. when money's on the line you know what you can do. and he believes he can do this. and judging from what i've seen and read from rice, he's confident but not stupidly arrogant. he obviously thinks he can hit 14-16 sacks.

      will he? doubt it. but he'll be gunnin all season long and will come close, and that's still just as good for us. a motivated simeon rice will do damage.

      Rivers has probably now the fastest release in the NFL that Favre is retired. - riversOWNSdonks
      Rivers has the potential to be better than Brady or any QB ever - riversOWNSdonks

        even if he doesn't get a bunch of sacks, pass rush+QB throwing quick=INT!

          Yah, he will most likely get double teamed if he is even 80% of his former self. Which means pressure on the QB's is very likely. And with our secondary that is almost what you want instead of sacks. Since both Bly and Champ have amazing ball skills.

              No kidding. In fact, I think they should have kept adding another $250,000 for every two sacks and see if the money motivated him to break 20.

              I sure hope he can bounce back with one of his typical seasons. If nothing else we've bought more time for our rookies to develop. But if they can contribute quickly I think our D-line could be a strenghth by the end of the season... when it counts the most.

              Just make the playoffs, Denver, and anything can happen!

                WoW...I was expecting him to get paid a little more....I mean he was supposed to get $5 MIL in TB...they asked him to take a pay apparently was more of a pay-cut than I had thought they had asked him to take!

                Well, if teams are double teaming him, GO GET'EM ELVIS AND MOSS AND CROWDER!! Hopefully that will help the tackles as well....

                  More contracts should be set up likethis, very fair, demands results to get paid, but rewarded nicely.
