Elwood Cannot afford a first round draft pick

Many of us thought Elwood was out of his mind when he gave Von Miller Superbowl QB money. In fact, he was generous to several other players while the rest of the Bronco’s roster was relegated to entry-level NFL wages. That cannot bode well in the locker-room.

Elwood was forced to get rid of a pro bowl cornerback to make room for QB Case Keenum. In 2018, the Broncos have the best draft position ever, but Elwood cannot afford to pay a 1st round draft pick?  What a catch 22.

Elwood will have to trade away his 2018 1st round pick in exchange for a 2019 1st round pick or a 2nd and 3rd in 2018. He needs to get on the phone.

Von Miller will have to renegotiate his 2019 money or the Broncos should simply trade him away or release him and take the hit. He should talk with Wade Phillips and see if he will take Miller’s remaining contract in 2019.

2019 will be the year that several high paid Broncos will have to be released or renegotiated.

 

In reality, Elwood screwed the Broncos when they agreed to pay Von Miller $114 million.

remember when Shawn Phillips got 10 Sacks for 1 million?
