Broncos Not Likely To Cut Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders

Published

on

The Denver Broncos should have a bust offseason ahead of them and, for some time, many have thought that the Broncos would part ways with receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders for cap reasons.

Now, it appears that Broncos general manager John Elway is considering keeping both veteran wideouts as the team searches for a top quarterback this offseason, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

Currently, Denver has about $27M in cap space, which is the 16th most in the NFL, but could significantly increase space by releasing cornerback Aqib Talib, offensive tackle Menelik Watson and running back CJ Anderson.

Those moves would create more than $40M in cap space.

Thomas has 2 years left on his deal and is set to make $12M in 2018. Releasing Sanders would save $5.563M but incur a penalty of $5.375M, which makes it very likely that he stays on board with the team.

Phillip Rivers

The Los Angeles Chargers will enter the 2019 season as one of the favorites in the AFC and veteran quarterback Phillip Rivers is feeling good about the upcoming season, as well as his current contract situation with the team.

The Chargers and Rivers could work out a contract extension, but Rivers isn’t stressing about that right now:

“I just feel at peace,” Rivers said, during an appearance on FOX Sports Radio San Diego. “If the extension is what works best for both of us and that’s how it plays out, then great. If not, shoot, let’s go have a heck of a 2019 and then we’ll worry about 2020 when we need to worry about it. I say that with every intention of being the quarterback in 2020 here. It’s not for any reason other than, hey, I signed up for this many years and this year is the last year running and let’s go if that’s what’s best. I really do feel at peace about it and feel good.”

Rivers is slated to earn $11 million in the final year of his contract.
