The Broncos shaved $14.99 million of cap room Wednesday, but it came at a big price for talent.

The Broncos released three starters -- defensive end Trevor Pryce, running back Mike Anderson and tight end Jeb Putzier in moves that pull the team within a couple of millions of the $92 million salary cap.

Pryce had a $10.2 million cap number and his release saves $8.5 million of cap room. There had no been much talk about him adjusting his salary. The same happened to Anderson, who had a $2.565 million salary that he is now not going to receive.

Putzier and Stephen Alexander shared the tight end position, but Alexander ended up starting more games.

I think the Texans should look at these guys and since Gk helped coach 2 of them I think we probaly have a good chance to get these guys. Mike Anderson would help give us a 1-2 punch with DD and Jeb Putzier could be that TE we are looking for!:redtowel:

I think anyone of these guys would be a nice addition to our team. With Mike Anderson you get the big back we need that is cool with sharing the load with more than two runningbacks.

With Trevor Pryce, we get the DE we need who is more than an adequate pass rusher.

With Putzier, you get the pass catching TE that already knows our offensive system. Could be the TE that Billy Miller was for David in our first year just with better blocking ability.

El Tejano
03-02-2006, 11:03 AM
Either one of these guys would be a nice addition.

Mike Anderson gives that big back needed and knows how to work with a team fully loaded at RB.

Pryce gives us the pass rushing DE we never had.

Putzier could be Carr to Miller again with better blocking.

If they could sign Shields and Lepsis, that would be great. The OL could be Lepsis at LT, Pitts at LG, McKinney at C, Shields at RG, and Wade at RT. Unforunately, it looks like we're stuck with Wade because of his contract. At least, though, the offensive line wouldn't be a HIGH priority in the draft.

not likely


Starting Thursday -- and perhaps not ending until September 2008 -- Gene Upshaw is the most powerful man in sports. Which makes him the most powerful black man in America since David Palmer won the presidential popular vote between seasons one and two of "24."


Gene's got the power.
Seriously -- with the NFL and the NFL Players Association on the brink of failing to extend their collective bargaining agreement (the deadline strikes Thursday) -- Upshaw's power is unprecedented. As the president of the NFLPA, the former Oakland Raiders guard and Hall of Famer holds the key to the future of the most powerful sports entity and television force in the world.

Paul Tagliabue and 32 of the richest and most arrogant men in the world must bow to Upshaw's will over the next 30 months or face the possibility of a chaotic future come the 2008 season, when the league's total structure -- draft, free agency and everything else -- would come unglued without a new CBA.

Bow to Upshaw? Yes, Upshaw is negotiating from a superior position than Tagliabue, who has 32 highly attentive bosses with varying agendas. For example, Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder, with their seemingly limitless Cowboys and Redskins revenue streams, have far different concerns than Jacksonville's Wayne Weaver and Cincinnati's Brown family. Snyder's Skins pass out signing-bonus dollars and seven-figure assistant-coaching contracts with little thought because the Skins can generate significantly more non-revenue-sharing dollars than the Bengals and others. Therefore, Upshaw's demand of 60 percent of total revenue sounds different to Snyder than to Weaver.

While Tagliabue must build a consensus among a group of strong-willed businessmen, Upshaw need only please himself, a small group of lawyers retained by the NFLPA and IMG super agent Tom Condon, Upshaw's main confidant.

Upshaw's real bosses -- the 1,500 players he represents -- are in no way engaged in this process. Oh, the handful of big-name players who will be cut on what is being called "Bloody Thursday" will care about the CBA. In a last-ditch scare tactic, the league is making sure word gets out that Trevor Pryce and several other high-end veterans are getting whacked because of the failure to reach labor peace. But the majority of Upshaw's constituency has no idea what is going on right now. His base is in the middle of enjoying Bling Season, the time of the year between the end of the season and the beginning of mandatory-voluntary workouts, when playas sit courtside at NBA arenas and stage-side at America's strip clubs.
Getting cut in March only extends Bling Season for a savvy veteran, or family time with the wife/baby's mama and kids for a recently busted or henpecked vet.

If we learned anything from the NBA lockout, it's that players don't care to get involved in labor negotiations until the checks stop rolling in. If Trevor Pryce is unemployed come September, when the league starts cutting its paychecks, that's when he'll ask his agent who is running the union.

But Pryce won't be unemployed in September, and neither will any of the other valuable, big-name veterans who are let go this week. With the league staring at an uncapped 2007 season -- and the owners highly unlikely to force a lockout to prevent the 2007 season -- Upshaw in effect has 30 months before any of his players get real interested in the labor negotiations. A few players having to wait a year on free agency is a sacrifice even NFLPA members are willing to endure.

Upshaw is holding all the cards, and he knows it. With no stoppage of play in sight, he won't face the wrath of fans, gamblers or the media anytime soon, either. Most fans will find Bloody Thursday rather exciting. It took Kansas City football fans all of 30 seconds to start debating how the defensive tackle-starved Chiefs could land Pryce in free agency. Never mind the fact that Bloody Thursday might cost the Chiefs 13-year vet and future Hall of Famer Will Shields. Never mind that the lack of an extended CBA and new salary-cap structure would have the Chiefs and many other teams treading very, very lightly in free agency.

NFL fans have a "fantasy" mentality. The more big names that are on the market, the more NFL fans can play fantasy GM during the offseason and hold barroom debates on who they would sign. Fans have grown accustomed to their favorite players switching uniforms.



The other gigantic advantage Upshaw holds is that NFL agents are weaker than their baseball and basketball counterparts. In the NBA, what David Falk and Arn Tellem have to say is far more important than what NBAPA president Billy Hunter has to say. Falk has more clout with players he doesn't represent than Hunter has with his rank and file members. Hunter has to acquiesce to Falk and other agents' agendas. Hunter isn't the head of a players' association. He's the head of an agents' association.

Upshaw faces no such problem. Drew Rosenhaus, the agent with the biggest client base, is viewed as a clown more interested in mugging for ESPN cameras than creating a profile as a visionary. What credibility Rosenhaus had with the public and players he doesn't represent got tossed away in the Terrell Owens fiasco. David Dunn and a quirky personality chopped Leigh Steinberg's profile in half. The inspiration for "Jerry Maguire" would now inspire a sequel with a tragic ending.

Condon, the head of IMG, is the only agent with the intellect and credibility to usurp any of Upshaw's authority. But that won't happen. Condon, a former offensive guard with the Chiefs, is Upshaw's underboss. Upshaw's critics claim that Condon is Tony Soprano and Upshaw is Junior Soprano, meaning Upshaw carries the title but Condon wears the crown.

Whatever the case, Upshaw and Condon have a strong alliance, and the NFLPA is infiltrated with IMG-trained lawyers and lieutenants.

Bottom line: There are no legitimate threats to Upshaw's power, and there is no reason for him to rush a deal. He's overreaching by asking for 60 percent of total revenues, but you're supposed to overreach when you have the kind of leverage Upshaw holds.

Did we complain when David Stern overreached in his dealings with NBA players? No. We applauded. Stern had the hammer, and he used it.

I'm not going to hate on Upshaw now that he wields the hammer. I'll support Upshaw with the same level of enthusiasm I gave President David Palmer. Now, I'll do it from afar, because eventually Tom "Jack Bauer" Condon won't be able to save him from every assassination attempt.

I know he is 35 years old, but he still has a few years in him. He is a 6 time pro-bowler and one of the top centers in the leage despite his age. I have no idea what his salary was but i expect it was big. Do you think that we could sign him and if so do u think that he would take a pay cut b/c of his age? he is the kind of guy that could be the leader of the O-line and anchor it for several more years. He would be a big time sign, and he would bring credibility to our line... and i think he would look darn good in a Texans uniform.

He is an enigma. All I know he is a beast that is misunderstood or an injury prone intelligent malcontent. Either way he will be expensive. I really do not know what to think on this one.

Just saw on ESPN News that the Broncos have cut RB Mike Anderson and DE Trevor Pryce. Wonder what Kubiak thinks about that?


It's been my opinion, that Denver didn't ever really want to run RBBC...... that it's just the way it fell. They do pretty good finding serviceable backs, teaching them how to work in a system, and moving on, when the money get's to be a problem, or in the Champ Bailey thing, when they needed something in a bad way.

I doubt they try to add anymore "thunder" to their line up, Tatum Bell will be their Feature back through next year. They may look to get a quality back up, who may compete for the Job, but I think Denver wants to be a one back team.

One back, who can catch, block, run....... makes for more versatility, I think than having a short yardage guy, a backfield reciever, a between the tackles guy, and a speed guy.

So lets add Kerry Collins - QB OAK, and center Kevin Mawae (NYJ)

So I rescind my comment about Collins being cut....for now. Seems he is still a Raider (for the time being).

With our GM, I bet we sign him to be a backup.

I think that move would really be a "WTF?" type move.
