    You can't be serious.

    I would be surprised if Elway doesn't move on from a QB who had the job to lose, and then lost it.

    I totally agree....our QB next year is not on the team now...

      No way on Earth do the Broncos pay Osweiler $20 million for one year. At that rate you may as well just pay Manning.

      The idea is that you need to trim money at the QB position - not equal or compound it. For me, while I respect what Osweiler did in replacing Manning for several weeks nothing about his body of work indicates he's worth a franchise tag or a high-end contract. Unfortunately, some team will fork over ridiculous money for him, so my hunch is he won't be on the team next season. While that leaves a very small window for Manning to return, my hunch also says he'll move on.

        Nice post.

        In regards to the QB situation, we can get similar, if not better production at the position next year with guys that will cost a fraction of what Brock or Manning would cost if either one of them returned.

        It's simple.

        -Sign an experienced, reasonably priced veteran to be a back up and could start a few games, if we need him to.

        -Draft a QB

        -let the rookie compete with Siemian to be the starter with the veteran waiting in the wings in case things go wrong.

          After the way he's played in his last two games, it seems inevitable.

            Pay the man. He just took over the biggest football game there is.

              If they don't pay Von, the fans will riot and potentially burn Denver to the ground!

                The irony here being to pay him that we most likely will need to cut his idol.

                  Franchising and paying Von is not just about keeping a high impact, elite player, it's preventing him from potentially going to a rival who could hurt us with him! Imagine facing him twice a year as a Raider bookended with Mack, or in a P*ts uniform!

                    Impending free agent OLB Von Miller said contract negotiations with the Broncos will be "a peaceful thing."
                    Miller's comments came while accepting the MVP award for Super Bowl 50. One of the best pass rushers in the league, Miller elevated his game this postseason with five combined sacks in the AFC Championship and Super Bowl wins. Even if they cannot agree to a long-term deal, the Broncos are widely expected to retain Miller with the franchise tag.

                        This is not MLB, you don't get to just out pay everyone (not that we have the deep pockets to do that).

                        Elway has never used the exclusive tag before. I believe it is a matter of respect to players. If the Jags offer Miller 30M this year, do you think it is a no brainer to match the contract?

                        It takes two to tango and while I am sure we will offer him > Justin Houston $$$ to be the top OLB in the NFL, I do not have the same confidence we will match any absurd contract offer he gets.

                        The sooner we know the tag type, the sooner we will get a feel for if he will be back.

                          If Elway paid DT 14 mil a year, he better give Von what he wants, players like him dont grow on trees.
