Club (team) options
The Broncos have the option to pick up or decline a few options on key players. John Elway already noted that Von Miller’s $18 million team option will be picked up, but what about some of the other guys?
Todd Davis, LB
The Broncos can save $5 million by declining Todd Davis’ option. They’re not starved for cap space, but do they want to spend $5 million on Davis ($6 million cap hit) or do they want to go after another free agent?
Davis was a tackling machine for the Broncos but his time in Denver could be coming to a close.
Brandon McManus, K
If the Broncos decline McManus’ contract option, they would save $3 million. I’m not so sure they’re going to do that. They may look to extend him.
Ron Leary, OG
This is a pretty easy call in my opinion. The Broncos can save north of $8 million by declining Ron Leary’s option and that chunk of change could open up a lot of other possibilities in free agency.
Leary’s injury history and inconsistent play make this a pretty easy call.
