We really aren’t. $10M of the $17M in dead cap was from the signing bonus. The signing bonus was $15M paid in 2020 when he signed and was spread to hit the cap $5M each year. No way to get rid of that $10M.

We save $8M in non-guaranteed salary in 2021, $3M of the $10M guaranteed salary in 2021 and save all $21M of non-guaranteed salary in 2022.

It was an awful signing when we should have ridden Grier to a great pick to get our future QB without trading away draft capital. Teddy also cost us Bradberry’s 3rd round comp we could have used for more OL depth on Friday and he also cost us $31M of cap for 4-11. Plus had we decided not to go for it with him, cutting Short and trading Turner for picks only might have occurred. So yes, it was a poo ass signing. 

Thanks for the clarification. I agree with you completely about the signing. We never should have let Bradberry walk either. So much stupidity.

Denver seems to be OK with the move.  I didn't seem too much excitement but they believe he will be good for Lock.

For them it’s not bad. $3M is all they are paying for 1 year. That’s fine for a backup QB and it cost them a 6th. They are sinking almost nothing into him so easy if it doesn’t work out.
