The Denver Broncos made a huge splash with the opening of free agency on Tuesday.
Caldwell was signed to a two-year deal that could be worth up to $3.45 million, Talib was signed to a six-year deal worth $57 million, and Ward's deal is for four years worth $23 million.
On top of that, the Broncos are the favorites to sign the recently released DeMarcus Ware, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The Broncos entered the free agency period with about $28 million in cap space. It's unclear how all three of the aforementioned contracts are set up, but it's safe to assume the Broncos spent a good chunk of that cap space on Talib, Ward and Caldwell on Tuesday.
If the Broncos are to make a push for the seven-time Pro Bowler Ware, along with other possible signings to address holes at the left guard (Zane Beadles signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday), running back and middle linebacker positions, Denver will have to make cap-friendly moves in order to free up more cap space.
This isn't even including the fact the Broncos will have seven draft selections in May. That's another seven possible players to pay in 2014.
Here are five cap-friendly moves the Broncos must make this offseason.
