Free Agent Frenzy

I think Wolfe and Amukamara to fill out the defense makes sense. I hope they’re also keeping an eye on Bashaud Breeland, surprisingly still unsigned. There may be some value there.

Great to see Bausby back and Purcell tendered at 2nd round.

Two excellent additions from the AAF.

It looks like the Broncos are planning to make Flacco a post-June cut - meaning that the Broncos get $20million in cap savings this year and a $10million cap hit is transferred to next year.

I'm surprised WR Perriman is still out there, I wouldn't mind picking him up. Seems to be a good fit for our vertical game.

Looks like less than 2/25

Really poor judgement by CHJ and his agent. Perhaps he sees LAC as a better playoff contender than the Saints .....CHris really must have some Butt-hurt just to stay in the division.

If he's getting priced into the value tier, absolutely a strong move.   Wouldn't prevent us from prioritizing a draft WR, either - as I've said a bunch of times before, no one on our roster save for Sutton or Fant should be considered a future must-keep asset.   At the same time, rookies are rarely impact players, so getting someone to be our true WR2 behind Sutton while a rookie catches up to the NFL level of speed and playbook complexity is an A+ move, especially if it's a guy we can get at value and who has the potential to play at peak levels during their contract.  Perriman certainly checks off the boxes there.

Anyone else think it's possible that Belichick sends a player + a ton of his picks to Detroit for #3 and drafts Tua? It makes sense for both teams on a number of fronts. 

1. The Pats get their QBOTF who won't be under immediate pressure to start as it's not like New England has been bereft of success and will need to sell tickets and get nationally-televised games; their fans can stomach a down year and we know that BB's defense will keep that team at least marginally competitive even if the offense is a bottom-5 unit. Tua can sit for the year, develop with McDaniels and be ready to start in 2021. 

2. By trading out of a top spot, getting a starter from a familiar program and having a boat load of picks to load up with their guys, Quinn/Patricia can sell the Fords on the fact that they are undertaking a serious rebuild and thus potentially get the "playoffs-or-fired" threat lifted for at least this season. 

3. As we all know, former BB assistants who go on to lead other teams universally go after players from the same system. The Lions, Texans, Titans and now Dolphins heavily pursue New England castoffs and castoffs from each other's teams. Furthermore, the ties extend beyond the NFL straight to, you know where, Alabama and Nick Saban, meaning Tua already has a connection there.

Well said ! Add into the fact we can really us at least 2 WR's, it would also make us less predictable and give flexibility in the draft. I wouldn't mind taking a look at Paul Richardson as well, he did have a couple 80+ yrd catch seasons with SEA and this offense should be geared toward the vertical game.

Easily possible but I really think DET wants to stay towards the top 7 in the draft and probably not happening dealing with the Pats. I can definitely see them trying as Tua (if healthy) looks to be a perfect successor to Brady, his accuracy is as good as Brady's yet he'd bring a modern day mobility TB never really had.

Man what they would have to give up. But then again it’s Bill. He makes magic out of grains of salt. What player would they trade?

No idea. But BB dealing with Quinn/Patricia, they would probably give BB below market value given the connection.

That would be interesting.

23, 87, 98, 2021 1st, Joe Thuney, N’Keal Harry and Sony Michel might get it done

Updated Broncos cap information via Spotrac

We currently have $33.4M in cap space after the recent moves (including cutting Flacco) and a projected draft pool of just over $9M, meaning we have about $24M to spend, that's quite a bit of space and should allow us the opportunity to make a few more moves. We can also create some more cap space by signing Simmons to a long-term deal and pushing some of his money to future years. That likely won't happen until the eve of camp but could give us some more flexibility going into the season.

1. Glasgow and Bausby’s contracts haven’t been added yet. 

2. Draft pool is $2.25M max. I will die on this hill. 

Edit: $2.75M max, technically, if we don’t sign any of our last 4 picks. But any of those last 4 will actually save us cap space.
