If not injured, he's still better than most LB's in the league - but is he worth PR kind of $ until he's 33? Probably not.

That being said Elway seems to have a definite number in mind for each player (Osweiler, Jackson, Trevathan, Orlando Franklin, Pot Roast, Julius Thomas) and if they don't want to take the Denver Discount they are let go. Kinda sounds like a GM that used to roam the halls in San Diego, first name rhymes with "AJ".
How many Superbowl's did you play in and how many did you win with AJ?
