The Chargers continued to give quarterback Philip Rivers more weapons by signing Denver free agent Eddie Royal. He will likely be the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in San Diego, depending on the development of second-year receiver Vincent Brown. He was not in the Broncosí plans. ESPNís Adam Schefter reported that it is a three-year deal worth $13.5 million with $6 million in guaranteed money.
How much would Manning ask for and how much room do the Broncos have in their salary? Also I thought that they were going to have Tebow be the starting QB?
The Broncos have a lot of salary room. I've read $44.7 million under the cap which includes a $27 million rollover from 2011. They were under the cap in 2011 and are able to declare whether they will roll that over to this year and have chosen to do so. This is the money available to sign free agents, both theirs and on the market, and draftees.
