Total 2014 Salary-Cap Figure: $15.8 million
Highest 2014 Cap Number: $10 million (Champ Bailey)
Most Likely to Be Cut: Champ Bailey
The Broncos have to make some important decisions here. First, they must decide whether or not they want to sign Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to a lucrative free-agent contract.
Champ Bailey has a $10 million cap number in 2014, but there is zero guaranteed money left. This means the Broncos could cut him without any sort of cap penalty. Essentially, they cut Bailey and immediately add $10 million to their available salary cap.
Chris Harris is a restricted free agent, but no other teams may show much interest as he was lost for the season with an ACL injury in the divisional round of the 2013 playoffs. Harris will spend most of the offseason recovering from this injury, and there’s no guarantee that he’ll be ready by the start of training camp.
The Broncos will have to decide if they want to bring Mike Adams back in 2014. They will also closely monitor the health of Rahim Moore. His season was cut short by a rare lower-leg injury.
