Reports are out that Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are restructuring his contract. The fact that Peyton Manning is willing to restructure shows he wants a shot at another ring and is willing to help create salary cap space for the Broncos.
Denver very much wants to keep Demaryius Thomas and if they franchise tag him it will cost them around $13 million. Peyton Manning needs all the weapons he can get if he wants to make another Super Bowl run at his age.
If Peyton Manning is healthy and stays that way then the Broncos may be Super Bowl contenders. However if Denver falters and John Fox does well in Chicago then the Broncos will have egg on their faces for hiring Kukiak.
If the Denver Broncos save some money by restructuring Peyton’s contract they should spend some on defense and not just weapons for Manning to use. A healthy Manning and an improved defense would be very good for the Broncos.
