    Most likely IRman. It will save us about 3.8 mil toward the cap if we cut IRman. Funny that they were teammates at OSU.

    Cut Jake Butt. He is an injury prone.

    They are just giving Jake one more chance in this pre-season to prove he can stay healthy. If he can't, he'll be released. He has a lot to prove to make the roster and he's looking up the depth chart as it is.

    But, he's not costing much on his rookie deal. So, it's a very LOW risk, high reward. If he proves himself, fine, he can stay on the roster. If not, his career is done before it starts really, due to major knee injury issues. Sad that he never got the chance to prove what he could do.

    what, like six bucks? they needed another TE who might be able to stay on the field, and fant is the receiver. . .

This is our fourth offense in probably three or four years. Quarterbacks need to be developed. You don’t find one ready-made. We got to have a solid system in place for when we do go after whatever guy it may be, a young guy or a trade or whatnot.”

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but Kittle (drafted after Butt) was from the same conference that every other TE from that conference went to the Broncos for the last 3-4 years, right? But we still like these TEs?

    I’m not sure why they need more tTE’s, Vannett is JAG, you can find 1000’s of him in the yellow pages. Waste of cap space.

    Meanwhile, the Broncos have put the same amount of effort into fixing the OL ... riddle me that?

    He’s a stiff, I liked him coming out but he’s a total stiff.
