The Denver Broncos are headed into 2014 free agency with around $25 million in projected cap space. However, they can put themselves into an even better position by clearing out some cap space. Doing this will require getting rid of players that no longer represent a value at their current price.
Part of the process during this time of year includes self-scouting, and teams must take the time to look intently at their own roster. In addition to examining their own group of players, teams must be honest about where a player is at in his career.
This process leads to some tough decisions, and sometimes players who are popular with the coaches or the fans have to get released. It’s not a fun process, but it is part of the business that is the NFL.
Let’s take a look at the current roster for the Broncos. I’ve picked five players who could be cut for reasonable cap saving.
