    Since we haven't drafted or found his replacement yet, my sincere hope is that this is a motivation for Bolles to get his shit together and fulfill his potential.

    Maybe they will resign him for a cheaper deal, eh?

    This is based on the assumption that his potential was greater than what we've seen to begin with. We desperately drafted 2nd round talent in a year when 2nd round talent at LT was all that was available.

    What makes it sting worse is that we let Okung walk because he was meh...and then he reverted back to decent form after he left. Our coaching had to be so awful back then.

    I don’t have a problem with the decision but it does seem odd that we didn’t address the position in the draft at all if this is what we were going to do.

    There was a bit more to it than that...

    On March 17, 2016, Okung signed with the Denver Broncos on a one-year deal worth $5 million, which included an additional four-year, $48 million option.[39][40] The contract he negotiated for himself for 2016, had no guaranteed money and was extremely team-friendly and incentive-laden and is solely based on his performance. Had the Broncos exercised the option to retain him in 2017 he would have received $21 million guaranteed for 2017 and 2018.[41] He ended up starting all 16 games at left tackle for the Broncos in 2016.

    On February 23, 2017, the Broncos declined Okung's option on his contract, making him a free agent.

    This is the only way this does not end up as yet another busted draft pick during the Elway era. So, I'm hoping the same as you!

    That is not an unfair point, not at all.

    I'd like to think that even a 2nd round LT has a higher ceiling/potential than Bolles has shown at this point.

    I've always said, if you have something to say, say it. The longer you have to explain something, the less effective it is.
