A good team leaves themselves options and by going all in you're severely limiting your options.
I think they would ask bailey to cut his salary significantly. he has No SB amortization as his contract was guaranteed fro the first two years. If he cuts his pay to 5mill a year for the next two years it could happen. Right now they have a two year window before Peyton hangs it us and Thomas and Von Miller become FA.
In 2015 peyton Retires and they split his 25 mill between miller and thomas. it could happen, they are 18 under the cap now,add the 6 mill from Baileys salary they got 24 mill, they will need a min of 8 mill for a 1st year cap hit for Clady and 11 mill for Revis that still leaves them 5 mill for their rookies.
Now do i think Denver would do it? no. That is where I see DRC or Sean Smith ending up. having Revis, Dumavil, and Miller on the roster will have 2/3 of the defensive money tied up in 3 players.
