    Based on some of the salaries quoted for various players how can Broncos be anywhere near the cap?

    Well they have let go Bird and Joe O, plus Corey Parker and Third man Thiaday retired so that still leaves Eleventy Billion Bronco dollars left.

    They have lost Fifita, Boyd, Bird and Ofahengue. Now maybe Lodge. All on big coin. I'd say they are easily under.

    Faftita was hardly on huge coin, and all those players they
    Let go they would have to pay something to get rid of them. And they also had to replace them.

    McCulloch is also back, on 600k lol plus Turdpen got upgraded to 400k. They are paying 1m on dummy half alone.

    Because half their squad would be on minimum salary.

    W. Smith is a brilliant squad player
    He can play 14 every week at a pinch and offer some spark. He can also fill in at 9,6,7,1 and centre.
    One of the best back up players you can have in your 30 man squad imo.

    Obviously the Broncos think so too. Oh well, you can't keep them all.

    Funny how Crichton hasn’t committed to the Panthers beyond 2021.

    Would be the best option for us. Specialist left side centre. Apparently he wants $700k a year.

    That's a bit steep for a bloke with 1 year of 1st grade under his belt. But if reproduces something similar in 2021, and plays Origin (and plays well) then yes I could see him getting that money from somewhere. I don't know if I'd like it to be us though. I'd go as high as 500K but anything north of that is risky IMO
