Beats me, but we should look at trading Rick Smith for one of Denver's guys...
Overthecap says this about Denver's cap position before free agency started:
Est. Salary Cap Space: $27,471,486
Offensive Spend: 31 Players $75,657,767
Defensive Spend: 31 Players $33,860,431
Specials Spend: 3 Players $7,633,834
Dead Money: $3,935,450
If the cap is 132 million this year, that would give them about 15 million in free space, plus any carryover from the previous year.
They signed TJ Ward for 5.5m per year, Talib for about 9m a year, and Ware for 10m a year. So yeah, I have no idea where all that money is coming from.
