Denver Broncos News: 5 Players Released

Yesterday, 2/11, it was announced that the Broncos are letting go of 5 players.

Running Back – Anthony Alridge (I wanted to murder the announcers for adding a d when saying his name, it is not AlDridge jerks!). Saw no action, was on the IR all year.

Running Back – Alex Haynes. Saw no action, which is saying something since it was at the point of having the water boy carrying the ball.

Tight End – Chad “doesn’t seem to cut the” Mustard (yuck yuck, sorry). Played in 8 games, registered no statistics.

Running Back – P.J. Pope. I know he ended up on the IR, but I am a little surprised here. He played in 5 games, starting 1 and registered 130 yards rushing on 17 carries (7.6 average) as well as 3 receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown.

Wide Receiver – Cliff Russell. Cliff played in 2 games and registered no statistics.

I am a little curious on the decision to let Pope go, I know he is not “premier” backs but he did step up when asked to during the flurry of injuries at the running back position this year before he added to that list along with Alridge who saw no action. it certainly will fuel some draft drama. Mustard and Haynes have both had various stints with Denver so it would not shock me to see them back at some point again. Russell is promising in terms of talent, but with Denver having a strong core of receivers he is on the practice squad at best right now.
