Broncos | Team needs to clear nearly $30 million for 2006 salary cap
Mon, 23 Jan 2006 18:59:35 -0800

The Associated Press reports the Denver Broncos need to pare close to $30 million off the 2006 season salary cap. The situation could mean several players will not be with the team next year. C Tom Nalen, OT Matt Lepsis, DL Gerard Warren, and DL Courtney Brown are all possible victims.

I am sure alot of teams are going to be cutting some decent prospects to fill our holes. If we cut or trade AB and Howard goes we should be about 24 million under the cap and that's without any league compensation or incentives that the NFL has hinted at. It could be a very good off season boys and girls, even better than the regular season.

Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at them.

I'd like Nalen & Lepsis. With Nalen, we could move LeCharles Bentley back to guard where he can dominate. Lepsis could take Gandy's place. Wow, that would give Leinart extra time to pick teams apart. Our FO isn't that bright though, but hell, it doesn't hurt to wish.

Uhmm... Actually, Mel Kiper has Leinart rated as the #1 QB in the draft as he should be, but let's stay on the "I hate Leinart" bandwagon. You guys, kill me. We finally have a shot at a franchise QB & you guys want to draft another Brooks. As athletic as Young is, he's got the "Brooks Fumbleitis" disease. I don't know about the rest of you, but I've had about all of that crap I can stand!!!

I have to agree with putting Bentley back at guard. He was a beast at that spot. If we can get a good center in the offseason it would be a smart move.

Think about the right side of the line with Bentley and Brown... that would look like a couple of dozers.

I agree TD, I think if we pick up a veteran center in FA and with Stinchcomb coming back the Oline will be in pretty good shape.
