NFL comes down hard on Broncos

The Denver Broncos were fined $950,000 and will lose thier 3rd round draft pick in next years draft for circumventing the salary cap between 1996 and 1998. The violations included agreements between the Broncos and several players to defer salary payments with interest and agreement not to wavie a player before a certain date. Both raised issues with accounting for the salary cap. Along with the team penalties the NFL said an agent for a former player agreed to donate $100,000 to a charity. Neither player or agent was identified.

I was thinking how many other teams could be pushing this line?

shanahan does the GM work and the coaching right? that makes it much easier for him to ask favors from his players... thats really not a huge punishment though, and there still may be violations happening.

I have to agree. A third rounder for violating rules of the salary cap seems light.
Although the success the Broncos have had drafting runningbacks in the late rounds, it might have cost them a future probowl runningback.

You call that hard? I'm sorry but they should have lost at least two first round picks. The NFL should have made an example of them.

One can only imagine if this happened to Snyder, he'd be getting ripped a new on by the media. Meanwhile this news has sailed under the radar for the most part.

He'd be a distant second to Jerry Jones if both violated the rule

I agree, this seems like a rather light punishment. The Minnesota Timberwolves had similar salary cap violations and ended up having to forfeit like 5 consecutive first-round picks-in a two-round draft!

Didn't the Redskins used to hide players on the injured reserve list...........

But yes the sentence was too light and would have been much tougher if it had been the Redskins...Jerry Jones would have seen to it.

You may get to find out if the league will stick it to Danny Boy under salary cap violations rules. If he loses the Arrington appeal, I was told that the Redskins will have been in violation of the salary cap for several weeks last year. I don't KNOW that to be true, but that is what I was told by someone who follows that kind of stuff very carefully. So...

One mitigating factor in the Broncos' case is that all this happened six of seven years ago so it isn't as if it was something so blatant that everybody could see what they were doing to break the rules.

might have been seven years ago, but it could have still been millions over...
