Looking at 2011 Salaries, Cuts and Restructures

The Broncos are less than $800,000 under the proposed 2011 salary cap with a slew of rookies to sign and some pretty big holes to fill in free agency. I think the Broncos will be fairly busy making moves to prepare for those FA signings. Looking at a site that is posting the 2011 salaries and current contracts (unverified), I came to some conclusions about some players on the Broncos that may be at risk for getting cut or having to restructure to stay. Here is my list:

Chris Kuper - $7,000,000 for 2011 -- I like Kuper, but is he really worth 7 Million a year? If the Broncos truly have interest in a proven RT (Like Tyson Clabo or even Ryan Harris), they could cut/restructure Kuper and put Franklin in the OG mix.

Brian Dawkins - $6,000,000 -- I think this is a given that he will restructure.

Andre Goodman - $2,880,000 -- I think he restructures or gets cut. Although, uncertainly on Parrish Cox's freedom may influence this.

Reynaldo Hill - $2,400,000 -- The salary is not that bad, but I think he's on the back side and they may go with youth.

Jabbar Gaffney - $2,400,000 -- He's a McDaniels guy. He's making a decent money for a no 3 WR.

Marrio Haggan - $1,930,000 -- I know there's talk of moving him to DE, I don't see it at this salary.

Correll Buckhalter - $1,920,000 -- He restructures or leaves, period.

Also, I believe also that it is a another reason that Kyle Orton and his $7.3 million are gone.

What do you good people think?
