The NFL offseason is upon us and that means that free agency is just around the corner. While most teams are caught up in scouting the combine, a few are starting to also pay heavy attention to the upcoming free agent class and are determining who much they want to spend.

When it comes to the Denver Broncos, the checkbook is going to come out in a big way. According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, John Elway has stated that he’s not afraid to go out and spend in free agency this year to make sure another Super Bowl caliber team is on the field in 2014.

Not only that, but Elway said Peyton Manning would be willing to give up salary to help bring in free agents if needed.

Per the Denver Post,:

“I think we’ll be fine,” Elway said. “I don’t think (Manning) would have any problem, if we needed to find some cap room, that he wouldn’t help us out.”

The Broncos are in a win-now situation and it’s sort of dumb to build for the future. Peyton Manning is here now and he’s showing a resurgence in glory, and when that happens you live in the moment and don’t over look it to gander into the future.

    Next year will be Mannings last season and I doubt the Broncos even make the play-offs. The reason being the NFC west. All four teams in the division have defenses with the ability to ruin his day.

    You do not know what you’re talking about. The Broncos will still be the best team in the AFL, let alone the AFC West. And Peyton will probably play until 2016 when his contract expires. He loves the game and he is a consultant player who will always give 100+% on the field, practice, study time and locker room. You won’t find a better leader and field general anywhere. Broncos will have a better team than they had last year. Elway will have another good year of free agents and draftees and will be the team to beat in the AFC West and and along with the Patriots, the class of the Conferance.

    You forget that in order to make the playoffs you can win your division. The entire AFC West plays the NFC West next season so unless the Chiefs, Chargers, or Raiders win more against that division the Broncos are just about guaranteed a spot.

    “The Broncos are in a win-now situation and it’s sort of dumb to build for the future.”
    Actually, it’s sort of dumb not to build for the future. Because if you don’t, you won’t have one. That’s why Elway spent a 2nd rounder on a QB a year ago, in spite of having Manning. You’re not real bright if you think Elway is going to mortgage the future for a one year window. He could have done that either of the last two years and didn’t. He won’t now.
    Because that really would be dumb.

    I don’t think Peyton should have any problems sparing some of his $96 million he just inked up for the next 5 years in order to get the right players and win another superbowl for him.
