The Broncos have made an interesting decision in not renewing the contract of their Director of Football Administration and Lead Negotiator Mike Sullivan.
Mike Sullivan, the man responsible for the contracts of players like Peyton Manning, Von Miller, Chris Harris Jr. among others, has found himself no longer working in Denver.
In what was a very strange decision given what is coming up in the next few weeks, the Broncos have decided to not renew the contract of Mike Sullivan. He was the Director of Football Administration for the team. He also was the Lead Negotiator and handled the salary cap information for the Denver Broncos.
With free agency starting in a matter of a couple months, it is strange to see this kind of move happen. For a guy that helped with some major contracts for the team over the span of eight years, it would be an odd decision to let him walk.
Then again, the Denver Broncos have made some interesting personnel decisions over the last few days. Rich Scangarello was surprisingly fired by the team in the midst of a AFC Divisional Round game. They quickly made the switch to Pat Shurmur.
I am not familiar at all with those who handle these types of jobs, so no one really comes to mind on who Denver could be looking at. There is, however, a time stamp on getting this position filled.
There are key free agents that could hit the market in mid-March. Not to mention quite a few in-house free agents to focus in on. Players like Justin Simmons, Shelby Harris, and Derek Wolfe will be looking to get new contracts in 2020.
If the Denver Broncos are going to be focusing on getting the best players with the salary cap they could potentially have this offseason, they will need a guy that can do well in pursuing the key players to play in the Mile High City.
