    Mythbusting Joe Flacco’s contract
    Despite what you may have read or heard, Flacco can be easily moved by Denver and his restructure didn’t add any additional cap burden onto Denver.
    This is correct.

    For a veteran like Flacco heíll get whatever heís scheduled to earn as long as heís injured. With his neck injury itís possible he could be with the Broncos earning $23,650,000 million next season. At least until heís cleared to play. If heís cleared to play before next season, I think the cap savings are greater with a post-June 1 cut: $20,250,000 vs $10,050,000 cap savings.

    He has no injury guarantees in his contract, so they can move on once the season is over. The problem with him being designated a post June 1 cut is that Denver won't get the cap savings until after June 1, and it would push his cap hit into a 3rd year. With a lot of cap space in 2020, and with a decent amount to be rolled over, I'd just release him Feb 15th (or whatever the first day they can release him is) and take the cap hit immediately.

    Like any of the Captain Buzzkills in this thread would be singing Elway's praises if he'd signed Matt Moore for 9m a year?

    And what exactly was the right QB move this off-season? Draft Haskins? Throw Lock into the fire from Day 1?

    A good foundation is finally being poured and that's when people want to bring in the wrecking ball...
    lol but in reality the team is 3-7 and the season is over. Flacco was not reasonably serviceable. He was a bottom of the league rated qb being paid like an above average qb.

    Thereís no captain buzzkill in people being less in denial than others.

    If his injury is prolonged, wouldnít the Broncos need to negotiate a settlement in order to cut him? I donít think a team can cut an injured vested veteran player without a settlement. If that happened I would think thereís a chance Elway would keep Flacco rather than offer a settlement.

    I advocated for signing Matt Moore last year. Watching the film on Moore he was a solid guy capable of winning games for the Broncos.

    Haskins isnít a good reference because Gruden completely mismanaged the situation just like Elway has. Haskins should have started Day 1. Washington may have still lost a lot of games but he would have a full season of experience.

    Only during the season, once the season ends teams can then release players, sometimes teams will hang onto injured players if their salaries are guaranteed if they can't pass a February physical (Ron Leary this year) but team's can still release injured players. Two examples of injured players being released are Richard Sherman in March 2018 (he was coming back from a torn achilles, and Peyton Manning in 2012 when Indy released him to not pay his roster bonus.

    If there is guaranteed salary I understand. Guaranteed salary doesnít require a negotiation or settlement because itís baked into the contract. I was thinking of a vested veteran being injured during the season and carrying into the off season. I think they would still need to negotiate a settlement with Flacco
    because heís a vested veteran, but could be wrong.

    A vested veteran's salary is fully guaranteed if they're on the roster for week 1. Because Flacco was this year they owe him his entire 2019 salary. But once the league year ends their obligation to him ends, and they can cut him with no further payment being required. The Sherman example is very similar, veteran injured in a game midseason, goes to IR, released in the new year with no financial obligation. He was still rehabbing when the 49ers signed him.

    What are we going to do with Flacco? I read that he might need surgery on a herniated disc? And he said that he would think about coming back to Denver next year to be a backup to Drew Lock?

    Flacco won't be backing up our quarterback making $17 million/year.

    Flacco would be wise to retire. The guy made a boatload of money and should be set.

    He would have to take a pay cut for sure. I would hope he knows that

    And also won a Superbowl. The trouble is all athletes want to end on a high and rarely get the chance. Most end up like Flacco.

    Would he be worth 5 to 7 mill a year to be a backup?
