There’s no rush to decide yet - but it’s kind of ironic that Elway is holding off on making this decision on Bolles.  

Yeah, I believe he actually said they would wait until after the draft, not exactly a big endorsement for Bolles. 

Bolles is just a hard guy to trust.  Even toward the end of the year where his play improved, he was still a loose cannon who committed bad penalties.

The fifth year option is only guaranteed for injury so it’s most likely picked up.   
 

But I just couldn’t help but appreciate the fact Elway is holding off on the decision for Bolles.   If anyone can appreciate holding....  I mean, the joke writes itself.  :D

Yeah.  I don’t get the point of waiting unless it’s a motivational tactic.  As bad as Bolles can be, he’s still probably worth $11M at LT.  Even then waiting until Denver can draft a replacement before picking up his option is not a good look for Bolles.

So we decided to pick up the options on Todd Davis and on Brandon McManus but not on Ron Leary. I can't say any of these moves shocks me. 

Parting ways with Leary frees up $8m in cap space. According to Spotrac, we now have just under $66m to play with in free agency. Cutting Flacco will free up another $10m.

With $76m in cap space and a projected 12 picks, this is by far the biggest opportunity we've had to makeover the roster in Elway's tenure. I'm fascinated to see what we do.

I think we are going to see Elway be very aggressive.  IIRC, there was a report that if Denver isn’t competing when Elway’s contract runs out in a few years Elway was going to walk away and may do so anyway.

I get retaining Davis if that's the move. Truth is, 6 million for what he provides is still a decent value compared to what some guys might fetch on the open market.

Yeah, also an important locker room guy

No surprise that he’s not being targeted to return - but the ACL news likely means Gotsis won’t get much beyond a team-friendly offer in FA.   Probably won’t count much in the comp pick formula.   Oh well. 
 

We can close the books on him as a failed Day 2 pick - thankfully Elway’s athletic traits - zero football skill Day 2 practices are done.

The Gotsis pick is definitely up there when it comes to picks we immediately knew were bad/questionable in the Elway era

So on a Rams board we do a full mock and I volunteered for you guys. Think I’ve seen IOL, WR and CB if Harris is dealt. What are your big needs in the draft?

OT, WR, CB are the big three.

Maybe they're working on an extension rather than a 5th year.

I'm skeptical that's the case. I think it's more along the lines of- do we find someone to replace him in the draft, and if not, we'll exercise the option.

If I am not mistaken - it was Bill Koller who convinced Elway to draft Gotsis.
