Broncos | Contract Update: T. Sauerbrun

Lee Rasizer, of the Rocky Mountain News, reports some of the details of the restructured contract signed by Denver Broncos P Todd Sauerbrun. A $100,000 workout bonus was converted to a roster bonus, making it easier to attain, and raising his salary-cap figure for this season to $1.3 million. Similar workout bonuses for 2006 and 2007 were converted to base salary. In the past, Sauerbrun had been fined by the Panthers for being overweight. That issue was "never brought up once" by the Broncos, agent David Canter said. Also, Sauerbrun's new salary-cap figures of $1,395,000 and $1.5 million for the final two seasons perhaps makes it more likely he could have the contract reworked should he perform to previous levels. "But he's under contract now for three years and if he plays them all out under that (deal), we'd be happy with that," Canter said. "I'm sure it's something we'll revisit again."
