It's not that we couldn't afford him, just chose not to. We would have over paid for him just like Denver has done.
Denver only has two player in double figures towards the salary cap. Add that with all the young players on rookie wage scale contracts you have the room. They will have to spend some money to keep J. Thomas, D. Thomas and E. Decker when their rookie contracts run out.
