Denver Broncos Have Salary Cap Flexibility Even After Acquiring Russell Wilson

Tuesday was quite a day for Denver Broncos fans. Just minutes after learning that Aaron Rodgers would stay with the Green Bay Packers, the Broncos finalized a trade in principle with the Seattle Seahawks to acquire nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson.

The Broncos now have a quarterback they can build around, but it begs the question: Are the Broncos still in a position to do that?

From a cap standpoint, certainly.

Over the Cap has updated the Broncos’ financial status and has the Broncos with $26.2 million in cap space. That accounts for Wilson’s $19M base salary and $5M roster bonus, plus the money saved by dealing Shelby Harris, Noah Fant, and Drew Lock as part of the blockbuster trade, and Tuesday’s release of DaeSean Hamilton.
