    It might have been prudent to offer Os a contract after the NE game, or shortly after he started. As for Malik, he played well before last season even started. We could have retained him at a reasonable price if negotiations stated after we signed DT. Same goes for Danny.

    I just hope we learned the lesson to resign the guys we like (we, meaning Elway and co.) before their contracts are soon to expire.

    But I understand the Os issue, hard to spend millions on a guy that you're not sure of.

    When it comes to malik I don't see how it becomes a Broncos problem.. He left and cashed in. He said he would have given a discount but made no moves with his agent... so Just talk

    Why extend oz early if they don't know what he had? His 7 game performance was bleh with some wow mixed in... I say he is a Texans problem now

    And for what Trev went for... ya that one I will agree they should have sent an offer...

    You can't pay them early if they don't want to negotiate...If I recall correctly we tried getting Brock resigned fairly early on and they wanted to wait until the end of 2015.

    And for every Malik Jackson who gets the big money there are 2 players like Kaep who strangle their team with a bad contract and bad play.

    I agree, I'm just saying that if he starts the season without an extension, he's probably gone. Every catch, every first down, every successful game when he has numbers better than DT...the price goes up up up. He's never going to be cheaper to sign than he is right now.

    I'm glad he wants to retire a Bronco, and he seems genuine about it. I just can't see us paying two WRs top money plus 20+ million a year to an OLB. Just won't fit, IMO.

    Which is a good point. Kubiak's offense will be of particular interest where Denver defines it's needs.

    As an NFL veteran Sanders understands that professional football is a business.

    “Everybody wants to get paid (what) they feel like they put in, and what they put out. Hopefully we work out something in the next 30 days.”

    If they don't get a deal done on an extension, then enjoy watching his last season as a Bronco.

    If Miller's agent gets what he is asking for, I think Sanders will become a cap casualty. Unless he is willing to take the proverbial "hometown discount."

    More a case where it's highly possible that Mr Elway needs to see what happens with Von first. We had articles to read that said Elway pays for production not potential. Sanders is likely on hold only to possibly reward Sanders with a higher contract. If Von refuses to sign, they may move quickly to give Sanders more money. If Von signs big, then hope that Sanders will accept less.

    I think Elway may go up to 9-10, but 11-12, i dont know, yes only 1 or more mil more but having both your WR's on big money deals is rare in todays NFL.

    Sanders has said many times he wants to retire in Denver but we'll see what happens once the Von contract fagu is over.

    Given his age and other big WR deals, his deal was going to be tough.

    Still not sure it gets done.
