Getting ready for NFL free agency

The new league year officially begins on Wednesday, but there will be plenty of NFL-related news over the next two days as the league kicks off with the ‘legal tampering’ period of free agency. It will be a unique free agency this season due to COVID-19 pushing the salary cap backwards in a big way.

There has already been a ‘bloodbath’ of sorts with teams cutting plenty of quality veteran players to get themselves under this new salary cap. This won’t affect the Broncos as much as they were well under the projected lower cap number all offseason, but they won’t have a ton of wiggle room for any big splashes in free agency.
