The 2008 Broncos Salary Cap

I have finished compiling my unofficial salary cap figures for every player on the roster or who otherwise counts against the cap this year.  I have not included the details of John Engelberger's contract and I have made some guesses (especially related to Henry, Stokely and Bly's renegotiations).  This also does not include any salary cap credits for incentives not reached in 2007.  Lastly, I have made some assumptions about if the Broncos spread the cap hit for players like Lepsis, Plummer and Al Wilson over one year or two.

During the reloading season, not every player counts against the cap.  Only the top 51 players plus any prorations for players not in the top 51.  Right now, I have that value as $103,618,921 and the maximum salary cap is $116,000,000.

If any one has any questions about how I reached any player's number, please post a comment (and even post your own breakdown if you have it).  Also, if anyone has any other suggestions for ways to display this info, leave it in comments.
