Report: Broncos “negotiating in earnest” with Malik Jackson

SANTA CLARA, CA - FEBRUARY 07:  Malik Jackson #97 of the Denver Broncos celebrates with teammates after recovering a fumble for a first quarter touchdown against the Carolina Panthers during Super Bowl 50 at Levi's Stadium on February 7, 2016 in Santa Clara, California.

It wasn’t long after Super Bowl 50 came to an end that Broncos General Manager John Elway called keeping defensive end Malik Jackson in Denver a priority for the offseason.

It doesn’t look like it took too long for the Broncos to put action behind those words. Mike Klis of 9News in Denver reports that the team is “negotiating in earnest” with the player who scored the first touchdown of their Super Bowl victory.

Klis adds that talks about a deal have not progressed to a point that Jackson would re-sign before hitting the open market. Jackson said on PFT Live this week that he’d like to return to Denver, but that “it’s a business” when it comes to where he’ll eventually wind up.

Seeing what the business might offer a productive starting defensive end could keep that progress from getting made and the Broncos won’t be able to improve their chances of keeping Jackson with a franchise tag should they use it on linebacker Von Miller.

Per Klis, contract talks haven’t started with quarterback Brock Osweiler yet but that some could happen at this month’s combine.

    never heard’ve him, should sign some one else imo

    One hit wonder. Let him go. Miller is the guy.

  3. edelmanfanclub says: Feb 14, 2016 1:46 PM

    Just dont illegally defer money in order to keep him and your team under cap this time.

  4. mrwalterisgod says: Feb 14, 2016 1:59 PM

    Elway did a fantastic job of using free agency to build the core of his teams. I have a hard time believing they can sustain when Miller wants to get paid next year (he’ll get tagged soon) and Talib, Ward and Ware start to show their age. Elway won the lottery when Manning chose to sign in Denver and that bought him a few years to realize that yes, defense is important too.

    Oh, and you know everyone associated with the Denver Broncos is HEAVILY regretting they succumbed to Demaryius Thomas and giving him all that money. Good receiver, not great. Not worth that investment.

  5. cinzano08 says: Feb 14, 2016 2:04 PM

    Elway won the lottery when Pedton signed? You mean the Guyer clinic won the lottery. Hgh is illegal dude and don’t give me the it’s my wife’s stuff answer. He’s dirty and should be suspended like other ped users on his team were

    We are doing the same thing with Brady’s salary. He has a lot of deferred money and “bonuses” just to look like he took a pay cut and lowered our salary cap. But in reality he didn’t and that’s how we were able to sign Revis, Browner to help us win the championship.

    So if someone is worth 400 million dollars, and they r trying to have a child, they go to an anti aging clinic?? Anyone with a brain would go to NYC or Boston for fertility care that can not be matched anywhere else in the world! Manning is lying when he leaks his wife is receiving fertility care at an anti aging institute…

    Yes. Peyton is the sole reason Tony Dungy is in the HOF.

    People who believe Peyton was only because of PED’s are trolls.

    Peyton won at Tennessee. He won with Jim Mora. He won with Dungy. He won lots of games with John Fox.

    Manning casts a large shadow because he is one of the 3 greatest QB’s to ever play the position.

  13. val1005 says: Feb 14, 2016 2:46 PM

    There are a lot of players who went for the money and watch the Super Bowl on TV.
    To me after so many millions whats more important?
    imho

  14. billytodd2013blbaad says: Feb 14, 2016 2:47 PM

    better focus on the QB, peyton isn’t gonna be there next year either way and there’s no one in the draft that’s an instant starter and the free agent market isn’t all that awesome.

  15. joehamilton4444 says: Feb 14, 2016 2:51 PM

    We sign killers ( Hernandez) and wife cheaters ( Brady twice) Patriot lovers just stay in the background and wait for next year.

    Seattle somehow managed to keep most of their players after their Super Bowl win. Now it’s Denver’s turn to see if they can do the same. Their current cap number for 2016 is $141M and their cap is $149.3M. That means they currently have about $8.3M available but they only have 41 players currently under contract for 2016.

    I can’t imagine Peyton will be back with a cap number of $21.5M when they could cut him and create $19M of cap space. Here are some others…

    Demaryius Thomas–15.2M and -19M
    DeMarcus Ware–11.6 and 10M
    Ryan Clady– 10.1 and 8.9
    Aqib Talib–9.96 and 6.96

    One would have to think they may cut Talib loose to free up some space. He has a lot of miles on him and I can’t imagine Elway liked his behavior he saw in the Super Bowl. I also wonder if they would let DeMarcus Ware go. He’s 33 now and faced with the decision to spend $10M on him or use that money to try to sign Jackson, Miller and Osweiler. I wouldn’t be surprised if they approach Clady about restructuring his contract to free up some space.

    If they do cut Manning (or he retires), Ware, and Talib that would give them about $35M to sign the three players mentioned. That might at least give them the ability to get in the neighborhood.

    The Demaryius Thomas contract is like a boat anchor. Even if they wanted to cut him to save some money, they can’t because they’d take a $19M cap hit. Given that he was almost a non-factor this year I bet they wish they hadn’t given him all that money.

  19. genericnflfan says: Feb 14, 2016 3:13 PM

    15 other AFC teams hope these negotiations aren’t successful. and 16 NFC teams, for that matter

  20. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 3:20 PM

    Demaryius Thomas didn’t have a great year but he is still a top end number 1 WR. He will bounce back. Broncos will be fine under the cap because Manning’s 18 million is coming off. You can sign a lot of players with 18 million in cap space.

    People need to realize without the Broncos what the AFC would be like.

    Who knows how long the drought would have went had we not risen up and beaten the Packers in 97. It showed the rest of the league the NFC dominance was over.

    Not only that but we have a 5-3 record vs the Steelers in playoff games. What? you want them to have more then 6 rings, they already won’t ever shut up.

    Patriots? Without Denver who knows how many rings they would have. Brady literally can’t beat us in the playoffs, we have a winning record bs him as well.

  21. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 3:21 PM

    Also if people think Brock Osswieler is dumb enough to leave the Broncos you are nuts.

    He will get a fair prove it up deal in Denver

  22. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 3:25 PM

    Clady already said he would take a pay cut to stay in Denver.

    Most likely Elway will get his cap number down to about 5 million.

    You are crazy if you think they need all that space to sign players. You just don’t know how the cap works and how they can spread the money over the next 4-5 yrs.

    Broncos are in good shape and also have some extra comp draft picks coming.

    If they did want to move Ware or Talib though they could pull it off. They have Shane Ray and Shaq Barrett ready to start at OLB. They have Bradly Roby as a 3rd corner and he’s already good enough to start on all 32 teams.

  23. badbabyjane says: Feb 14, 2016 3:27 PM

    So many haters. Aught oh, this means Denver did something big!! Hey haters, seriously, you think we care? Enjoy the combine. We’ll still be celebrating SB 60!

    “Malice” Jackson.

  25. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 3:54 PM

    I’d gather most football fans who now want to sign Malik Jackson to their teams didn’t even know who he was before Wade Phillips came to run the Denver defense.

    Umm Wolfe and Malik decent players but it’s the scheme and the presence of Miller/Ware on the edges that make it work.

    That and the best secondary the league has seen in quite some time.

    Our 3rd corner Bradley Roby is probably in the top 15 corners in the NFL right now. Talib and Harris are both top 5 most likely. Throw in two good safety and you have the real NO FLY ZONE!

  26. bronco6745 says: Feb 14, 2016 4:16 PM

    Malik is a boss but I get the feeling he’s gonna chase the money. Cause even though Peyton’s salary coming off the books will help, that’ll largely get taken up just by von miller. And I’m sure Osweiler is gonna require 12mil+. Elway has some tough decisions but he’s proven he knows what he is doing, and is I think better than everyone in the league in free agency.

  27. stoplyingpatriotsucheatnotbroncos says: Feb 14, 2016 4:43 PM

    Hey @ edelmanfanclub and broncoscheatedthesalarycap…
    You two professional trolls should take a break, get out of Mom’s basement and do some research on why the Patriots sucked so bad all those years before Brady.

    And try as hard as you want… the general perception is that the Patriots are cheaters and the Broncos are not. And perception is reality!
    Sorry, Truth hurts.

    As for Malik… I would spend the money on Trevathan and Osweiler first.

    It’s going to be tough.Lets hope Elway can smash the draft out of the park (again) I think Malik will be chasing the money. J.T took 2 or 3 million more in JAX…I bet he regrets that one.

  30. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 5:27 PM

    The Broncos need to keep their secondary intact or even add to it through the draft. All the recent SB winners have had good to great secondaries.

    2013 – Seattle
    2014 – Patriots
    2015 – Denver

    In addition, the Broncos will need to beat the likes of Big Ben and Brady to win the AFC which is hard to do without a good secondary.

    Demaryius Thomas didn’t have a great year but he is still a top end number 1 WR. He will bounce back. Broncos will be fine under the cap because Manning’s 18 million is coming off. You can sign a lot of players with 18 million in cap space.

    That $18M won’t last long when you have a QB, who people are going to throw lots of money at, a LB (Miller) who people are going to throw lots of money at, and a DE (Jackson) who people are going to throw lots of money at. That $18M won’t cover for what two of those guys are going to want. Then you have Brandon Marshall (who only made $585k last year) and Trevathan who only made about $1.5M last year. All of those guys are going to want raises and if the Broncos don’t ‘pony’ up enough money, they’ll be gone.

    Miller made almost $10M last year. He’s going to want at least that much. There’s half of that $18M right there.

    I know they can spread money down the road but kicking the can down the road only puts you in cap purgatory a few years down the road. However, the window is short so if they can figure out a way to make all those guys happy they should find a way.

    I think you’ll find that $18M won’t go as far as you hope it would. The Broncos have a real challenge in front of them but if they can keep those guys on the defense around, they have a chance to repeat. Hopefully Osweiler won’t try to break the bank but I’d be surprised if he doesn’t get at least $10M per year…maybe loaded with incentives.

    It’ll be interesting to see how it all plays out. Hopefully some of those guys would stick around for a little less money instead of just signing for the biggest deal they can get and go to a loser (ask Julius Thomas how that worked out).

    Peyton NEVER beat the GATORS in College ball.

  33. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 6:10 PM

    Broncos have 10 million under the cap. Manning coming off will add about 17 million.

    27 million.

    Restructure Clady like he already said he would bring in another 5 million.

    32 million under the cap.

    Tag Von Miller will cost 14 million. That leaves Denver with about 18 million.

    Sign Brock to about a 10 mil a yr prove up deal.

    Still 8 million left and that without even all the other little deals Elway can make.

    No doubt Travatheon will be gone. But Marshall even at the RFA tender of 1st round is 2.8 million a yr. You can all dream the broncos get picked apart but Elway is the master and has this handled.

  34. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 6:11 PM

    Then after this year we ditch Demarcus Ware and let the two young players take over. It’s all planned out and the league will be crying when Elway has enough money to keep all our core players and sign some OL help.

  35. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 6:12 PM

    Then when the time comes, because Bradley Roby is so good the Broncos can draft a new 3rd corner and let Talib walk.

    Jackson has leverage on Elway. Period. Every single FA has leverage on the cheating Horseteeth.

  41. tylawspick6 says: Feb 14, 2016 7:11 PM

    Can’t wait for the 4pM fax deadline again when Elway gets bamboozled by another player who blamed the signing on a slow fax transmission.

    That’s still one of the funniest stories I’ve ever heard.

    I want to see Elway’s college degree. I have a hard time believing he want to class and took his own tests.

    Dumber than a door nail.

  42. arwiv says: Feb 14, 2016 7:11 PM

    Giants have 60 mill in cap space…and that includes a paid for franchise QB who has about 3-4 years left of his prime. I have to believe that they’ll look very hard at signing Jackson.

  43. tylawspick6 says: Feb 14, 2016 7:21 PM

    Broncos are as delusional as Jets fans.

    My goodness.

    Gomer’s cap hit is 2 million, so it’s 16 million, but if you tag Miller at 14 million, you only have 2 million left.

    Translation?

    They’re walking on Miller because he can get 14 mil from someone else who doesn’t need to cheat the cap.

    You people are delusional. I would bet money Elway cheated the cap the last few years anyway. He’s done it before with very minimal punishment back in 1995, 1996 and 1997.

    The greatest NFL scandal ever and it goes un-reported or ignored by the media, just like Gomer’s Chinese HGH and other possible PED violations, across the entire Denver roster.

    Von Miller went from finesse one trick pony to Lawrence Taylor over night.

    Broncos done for YEARS.

  44. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 7:29 PM

    Big deal if we lose Jackson. If the Giants want to overpay they can have him. He had one good year after Wade Phillips arrived. He had two of the best edge rushers in the NFL to the left and right and the best secondary in the NFL.

    He isn’t worth more then what Wolfe got. Wolfe wanted to be a Broncos and signed a cap friendly deal.

    If Malik wants to be on a great defense he can do that same. Or he can walk and be an avg player on some team like the Giants whose secondary is crap.

  45. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 7:30 PM

    Broncos have a player who got injured that was pushing Malik for his spot just last training camp.

    =================================
    yup, yer right. The Pats let him go when he was arrested, not waiting to see if high priced lawyers could get him off; unlike what other NFL teams have done. It’s unfortunate that teams cannot more closely follow what their players are doing during the off season; see who they are running with. Hanging with dangerous people can have dire consequences. The Broncos lost a good CB in a drive by shooting a few years back where the intended target was a Bronco WR who allegedly got into a tiff with some gang members.
    But kudos to the Broncos for having such a fine upstanding list of players on their roster, both past and present. BTW – the only difference between Talib and Hernandez is that one aimed better.

  47. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 7:33 PM

    Tyla is forgetting broncos have 10 million in cap space before Mannings 16-17 million comes off.

    Also plenty of guys to let walk like Owen Daniels who may retire. That would be another 2-3 million.

    Clay already told Elway he will take a pay cut, or be cut so that 10 million is there also. No way Broncos pay a guy 10 million who missed 2 of the last 3 yrs and both Superbowls.

    Broncos may cut Clady if he doesn’t

  48. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 7:36 PM

    Other fans just pissed the Broncos are the masters at controlling the cap.

    We don’t have dead money and we hit on all our FA.

    Emannual Sanders=hit
    Ware=hit
    Ward=hit
    Stewart=hit
    Talib=hit

    Elway found Chris Harris UDFA, Brandon Marshall was a Jacksonville castoff, 2 more hits.

  49. tylawspick6 says: Feb 14, 2016 7:38 PM

    Since Elway cheated the cap with Manning and others using PEDs to accomplish their SB win, the Cap Gods have been watching.

    Denver is done. You won’t be sniffing jack squat for years as long as a drunken sailor for a GM, featuring a low IQ, is running the ship.

    This isn’t MLB where you just knee jerk contracts on a whim and don’t think it’ll catch up to you.

    When exactly did the Elway cheat the cap?

  52. tylawspick6 says: Feb 14, 2016 8:03 PM

    Well, the run the audits a few years after, as we learned the first time Elway cheated the cap in 1995, 1996 and 1997 deferring his true salary that was reported at the start of those seasons.

    So, that is the first time he did it.

    We’ll have to wait until 2019 and 2020 until the audits are run to learn Denver cheated again.

    Having so many free agents at once like this is also a tell tale sign, not to mention his actions leading up to this little cap cheat operation he tried to repeat in honor of Gomer’s last year.

    Elway saw himself in Gomer.

    WIth Gomer clearly admitting to HGH cheating and whisking off during Osweiler’s first ever start, it all now makes sense.

    What other PEDs are the Broncos using?

    Broncos have 10 million under the cap. Manning coming off will add about 17 million.

    Actually they are going to be about $8M under the cap but they also have only 41 players under contract. So you’re saying give it all to those three players and sing a bunch of UFAs to round out the roster?

    I’m not sure how they keep everyone with all the people who are going to want to break the bank unless they all agree to take a little less and have a team-friendly structured contract. If they do though, that means they are probably going to pay for it a few years down the road. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.

    And btw, I’m not a Broncos hater. I pondered these same questions after the Seabags won the Super Bowl two years ago. They were lucky enough to not have a lot of high value contracts unlike Denver.

    @stoplyingpatriotsucheatnotbroncos

    Sorry kiddo, I’m not a Pats fan. If you ever read my posts you’d know that. And the Broncos have been the biggest cheats in football history. Paying players under the cap and having your QB admit to receiving HGH is about as bad as it gets. Read up, son.

  55. tylawspick6 says: Feb 14, 2016 8:08 PM

    Broncos CB Darrent Williams was involved in a gang. The Crips killed him.

    At least the Pats immediately cut Hernandez once they found out the truth of what the police had via the governor.

    Broncos fans are delusional and obnoxious. Nothing applies to them.

    No wonder why Chiefs fans hate Denver so much.

  56. tylawspick6 says: Feb 14, 2016 8:13 PM

    5-6 million counts against the rookie draft picks. If you swap out Manning’s bloated deal for Von Miller’s, that isn’t going to do much.

    Talib, Ward and Demarius Thomas, while good players, are also wildly overpaid.

  57. dtroxallday says: Feb 14, 2016 8:14 PM

    But since there’s not one or any reason to believe there will be one, why not just make up one of your own like you just did?

  58. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 8:20 PM

    Broncos may let Malik walk, big deal DE in a 3-4 that can hold the edge aren’t that hard to find. It’s all about edge rushers and having a stout NT in Wade Phillips defense. Keeping Wolfe was more important.

    Most of his sacks were just Miller or Ware pushing the QB to him, or the secondary doing an awesome job.

    Thomas is a little overpaid for his drops this year but he still made big plays that one games for us, had 105 receptions and over 1000 yards.

    The tds were down for everyone this yr as the offense stunk. Think about that, the offense stunk and they still won it all.

  59. tylawspick6 says: Feb 14, 2016 8:20 PM

    Talib = 9 mil
    D. Thomas = 13 mil
    Von Miller tagged = 14 mil
    Clady = 9.5 million

    Shall I keep going?

    That is atrocious.

    Manning leaving, taking on 2 mil cap hit, does nothing gain space if they tag Miller at 14 mil.

    The kids today are so dumb.

    You can’t have that many people overpaid on the market and not expect it to hurt you.

    Mass exodus in Denver….Marshall, Trevathan, maybe Von Miller, CJ Anderson, etc, all set to totally rape other teams’ cap positions.

  61. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 8:23 PM

    No check the win loss record and then you will know why Chief fans hate the Broncos. It’s why the Pats, Steelers, are also hated. It’s because we win.

    Crappy teams like the Queefs who haven’t sniffed a Superbowl since Len Dawson played can’t take it.

    I think we have beaten them like 12 of the last 13 games or something ridiculous like that.

    Broncos CB Darrent Williams was involved in a gang. The Crips killed him.

    At least the Pats immediately cut Hernandez once they found out the truth of what the police had via the governor.

    Yeah right. They only cut him after he was indicted. At that point it was already over. Don’t act like the Patriots are some high and mighty moral organization. Look how many times they’ve been caught cheating. How you can overlook all the crap the Patriots have pulled (including having a psychotic triple murderer on their team–don’t forget that he played the 2012 season after murdering those two people in Boston) and say anything about another team?

    You’re an idiot. You are probably one of the people who carried signs saying “Free Hernandez” just because he played for your hallowed Patriots. Pathetic.

  63. tylawspick6 says: Feb 14, 2016 8:27 PM

    @BroncosRChamps

    Your offense stunk/was imbalanced but we all saw Cotchery make that catch, which was not the right call, and the the very next play was a Def TD.

    Talib offsides on that FG, is another creepy call in your favor, which is a 10 point swing.

    Stop acting like you dominated.

    You had help from the refs all year, namely in that game vs the Pats. It’s widely accepted as the case.

    Get over yourself.

    It took your team 20 years to find a way to cheat again, and it started with using illegal PEDs to get Gomer in a Broncos uni and on the field.

    Congrats on buying a title. It’s all downhill from here.

    All those draft picks you can’t pay for, means Elway completely botched for them to pay them ahead of schedule, to keep his leverage.

    He has no leverage.

  64. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 8:29 PM

    Also look for Denver to part ways with Vasquez, he played like crap all yr. Broncos get Clady to restructure, and Sambrillo back, they will cut Vasquez for someone who fits Kubiaks scheme better.

    Cutting Vasquez is 5.5 million saved and a no brainer.

    Owen Daniels is talking retirement=2.5 million

    Latimar is a bust hes gones = 875 grand

    Clady restructures/pay cut = 3-5 million in cap space

    Manning leaves = 16 million

    Then next yr most likely either Ware or Talib leaves the Broncos for a cheaper player we already have on the roster. Roby, and Barrett/shane ray

    No doubt they can’t sign everyone. Either Malik or Travatheon most likely gone. But Brock and Miller will be broncos.

  65. Lancane says: Feb 14, 2016 8:30 PM

    First off, it was Shanahan who messed up the finances that caused Denver to overspend back in 98′ and Denver was punished accordingly, so get off it. Too many idiots on here talking guff when it’s easy to screw that up…it’s called human nature. Every team in the league has screwed up, but thus far Elway has done well in Denver without messing up too bad.

    If I was him I’d cut Ryan Clady, trade Demaryius Thomas, extend Emmanuel Sanders, allow Malik Jackson and Brandon Marshall go while keeping Miller, Osweiler and Trevathan.

  66. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 8:32 PM

    Your crazy the Cotchery ball cleary hit the ground and moved. Also Talib moved when the ball was snapped.

    I agree we did not dominate. Nothing like 1998 where we won every game by 14 points or more all yr.

    Broncos are a young team on the offensive line, started 2 rookies, and would have started a 3rd had Sambrillo not got inujured. They will only get better.

  67. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 8:33 PM

    Bought a title?

    Nope its a mix of FA and homegrown draft picks.

  68. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 8:35 PM

    Brandon Marshall a RFA no reason to let him walk unless a team gives us a draft pick.

    Most likely we tender him 2nd round, that means he will count around 2 mil on the cap this yr.

    Too cheap to not keep one more yr for a player that graded out in the top 5 of all linebackers on PFF

  69. orandegadsen says: Feb 14, 2016 8:44 PM

    Time for Elway to attend a few AA meetings. Guy seriously needs to lay off the sauce,looks like he’s been living off cream bullets and Johnnie blue

  70. tylawspick6 says: Feb 14, 2016 8:49 PM

    @Lancane

    Elway HAD to have known he would be receving smaller paychecks until AFTER each season ended, 3 years in a row.

    Elway was the one to do it because he was the most expensive player Denver had in 1995, 1996 and 1997 since he was there for so long and a Pro Bowl QB.

    You bozo Broncos fans cannot admit your team actually cheated.

    THAT is cheating.

    Mocking a former protege is not cheating, nor is magically deflating 13 balls at a feverish clip in a bathroom, when it never even happened.

    Also, PED use is cheating and the Broncos are notorious for encouraging it through the years.

    Vaseline on the jerseys per Mark Schlereth is another example. Foreign, artificial substances are not allowed.

    Just admit these things and move on already.

  71. tylawspick6 says: Feb 14, 2016 8:50 PM

    @ Broncos R Champs

    We never see the ball hit the ground at all on the replay. The ball can move if his hand is underneath.

    Besides, final possession was when he rolled over and had, clear final possession.

    LEARN THE RULE

  72. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 9:01 PM

    Nope the replay booth had additional views that are no available. A good call no doubt.

  73. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 9:02 PM

    his had wasn’t underneath. He was pinning it to his leg and the nose of the ball hit the ground, and moved.

    That is no catch all yr long.

  74. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 9:03 PM

    3 rings haters, and we will have 4 within the next 3-4 yrs.

    Elway is just a winner period.

  75. johnniemayes says: Feb 14, 2016 9:07 PM

    Malik Jackson will be a star wherever he goes. He’s always been a dominant pass rusher but teams passed him up because of his run defense. He’s put it together and he’s the total package now.

  76. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 9:32 PM

    I’d be interested in seeing how Malik does in a 4-3/ Not to many teams run a 3-4.

    If he stays, great, if not meet Kenny Anuike who pushed for that job last yr until he went down with an injury.

  77. broncosrchamps says: Feb 14, 2016 9:33 PM

    Not to mention the fact people keep signing our FA means we keep getting comp picks in the draft.

    Those middle round picks are how you keep the cap in control.

  78. ebdug says: Feb 14, 2016 10:51 PM

    The Broncs are negotiating with 32 other teams for Jackson’s services. We already know they’re willing to pay the tag price. I don’t even see why they have to talk to Jackson, he’s already said he’s going where the money is.

    Hernandez was ordered to stay away from the team’s facilities on June 20, 2013 after learning about Hernandez’s home being searched on June 18, by the police in regards to an on going murder investigation.

    If you had bothered to just use Goggle rather than whatever it was you used for research you could have posted some facts.

    If you had known about those 2 murders during the summer of 2012, you should move to Mass and run for Attorney General, as that would be impressive investigating on your part. That investigation was going no where until the tie in to Bradley being shot in Florida and Lloyd’s murder were all in relation to that murder. But you knew all that before hand….. I’m impressed.

    Even if they re-sign him and Von Miller, they still need a quarterback to contend for the Super Bowl. They have to decide whether Osweiler is good enough or not.

  81. concretejimmy52 says: Feb 15, 2016 9:39 AM

    I wonder how many women Elway tea bagged back in the day like his QB. Interesting story that’s just being told. Even though I heard rumors about it before.

    Seattle somehow managed to keep most of their players after their Super Bowl win. Now it’s Denver’s turn to see if they can do the same. Their current cap number for 2016 is $141M and their cap is $149.3M. That means they currently have about $8.3M available but they only have 41 players currently under contract for 2016.

    I can’t imagine Peyton will be back with a cap number of $21.5M when they could cut him and create $19M of cap space. Here are some others…

    Demaryius Thomas–15.2M and -19M
    DeMarcus Ware–11.6 and 10M
    Ryan Clady– 10.1 and 8.9
    Aqib Talib–9.96 and 6.96

    One would have to think they may cut Talib loose to free up some space. He has a lot of miles on him and I can’t imagine Elway liked his behavior he saw in the Super Bowl. I also wonder if they would let DeMarcus Ware go. He’s 33 now and faced with the decision to spend $10M on him or use that money to try to sign Jackson, Miller and Osweiler. I wouldn’t be surprised if they approach Clady about restructuring his contract to free up some space.

    If they do cut Manning (or he retires), Ware, and Talib that would give them about $35M to sign the three players mentioned. That might at least give them the ability to get in the neighborhood.

    The Demaryius Thomas contract is like a boat anchor. Even if they wanted to cut him to save some money, they can’t because they’d take a $19M cap hit. Given that he was almost a non-factor this year I bet they wish they hadn’t given him all that money

    ———————————————————-

    How is 100+ receptions and 1300 yds a non factor???

    DT had a great season given the complete overhaul of the previous pass-happy offense, two different QB’s, and a heavy run game.

    The earned his money! Stop complaining.

    Elway won the lottery when Pedton signed?
    ==============================

    Yes. Peyton is the sole reason Tony Dungy is in the HOF.

    People who believe Peyton was only because of PED’s are trolls.

    Peyton won at Tennessee. He won with Jim Mora. He won with Dungy. He won lots of games with John Fox.

    Manning casts a large shadow because he is one of the 3 greatest QB’s to ever play the position.

    ————-

    What exactly did Peyton win at Tennessee? Oh yeah, regular season games….

  84. sc5000 says: Feb 15, 2016 1:27 PM

    Demarcus Ware and Aqib Talib both signed front loaded deals 2 years ago. D Ware is scheduled to make 11.6 million but his dead money is only 1.6. Talib is scheduled to make 9.9 and his dead cap is 3 mil. Aside from Manning, these are the 2 roster cuts that would allow the Broncos the flexibility they need.

    There is a reason the Broncos drafted Roby 2 years ago and Shane Ray last year. Broncos will have plenty of Cap space for who they need to keep. Brilliant mastery of free agency and draft by Elway.

    Stop ripping Elway he is doing an incredible job you just look petty and jealous.

  85. broncosrchamps says: Feb 15, 2016 2:35 PM

    I doubt the Broncos cut Talib, but Ware is a possibility as he has a really bad back.

    The Broncos really took it safe with him this past yr letting him sit out about 4-5 weeks.
