Denver has 40 million of cap space and, if they don't sign Manning, are screwed in that the best FAs are gone. I hope PM keeps them on the fence for another week or two while we get Winston and Schwartz signed and then PM decides to go to Tennessee. The Denver fans will be right to go nuts ... all that cap space gone to waste.
Meanwhile, a FA period for us that includes Routt, Hillis, Boss, Winston, and Schwartz would be huge
for us, regardless of space we have left. Winston and Routt will not count against the compensation picks we might get for Carr, Orton, McClain, and any others because they were cut prior to our signing.
