5 moves the Broncos should plan on making for 2021 offseason
5 moves the Denver Broncos should plan on making in the 2021 offseason.
The Denver Broncos have a huge offseason ahead in 2021, even though at this point there is just under half of the 2020 regular season yet to be played.
The Denver Broncos are currently 3-6, third place in the AFC West and frankly it looks like that is the best it’s going to get this season.
Considering the youth on the team, the lengthy injuries to critical players, a new system offensively, and the way COVID-19 has significantly impacted the NFL season, the Broncos’ record this season is neither surprising nor indicative of the progress this team has made in a number of areas.
With such a young and talented core of players, especially offensively, what moves do the Broncos need to look into making for the 2021 offseason?
At this point in time, nobody knows what the NFL’s 2021 salary cap number will be, but the lowest it will go is rumored to be $175 million. The Broncos are trying to carry close to $20 million in space over from 2020 to 2021, which would keep their adjusted salary cap close to what it currently is in 2020 (NFL salary cap is $198.2 million).
There are over $166 million in cap liabilities for the Broncos in 2021 already, so it’s possible that some re-shuffling will need to be done if the NFL’s salary cap is truly closer to $175 million than $200 million, even with nearly $20 million to roll over.
What moves should the Broncos be planning for in 2021 at this particular moment in time?
Let’s take a look.
