On the first day of free agency the Super Bowl-champion Denver Broncos lost both co-starting quarterback Brock Osweiler and defensive end Malik Jackson, further weakening a team that has already seen Peyton Manning retire. Fortunately, Super Bowl MVP Von Miller had some fun with the departures, photo-shopping the two in a funny congratulations Instagram.

The money seen in the background is very appropriate, given that Osweiler is reportedly headed to Houston on a four-year, $72 million deal, while Jackson reportedly is inking a six-year, $90 million contract with Jacksonville.

The loss of Osweiler (and Manning) leaves the Broncos perilously thin at the all-important quarterback position, while Jackson emerged as one of the better defensive ends in the NFL last season.

How the Broncos replace the two remains to be seen. Meanwhile, Miller has been given the franchise tag—worth more than $14 million this season—though Denver will likely try to sign him to a mega-deal before the season starts.
