This morning, the Denver Broncos converted the lion’s share of Von Miller’s 2018 base salary into a signing bonus: $16M out of a total $18.5M. That decision frees up $12.375M of the 2018 salary cap.
Elway has clearly chosen to pursue a major free agent, but who? Possibilities might include defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, and defensive back Tyrann Mathieu.
Updates to come as more details come out.
