Here's the 11 players released by the Denver Broncos tonight.
LB Jamar Chaney
RB Brennan Clay
WR Greg Hardin
QB Bryan Renner
DT Will Pericak
DE Chase Vaughn
RB Jerodis Williams
WR Greg Wilson
There's no big surprises here.
Offensive Tackle Winston Justice did not play at all last night, an was surpassed by Paul Cornick. Running back Brennan Clay was unimpressive during the preseason, and receivers Wilson and Hardin were longshots already because of the Broncos depth at receiver.
I'm a little surprised that Renner was cut. Figured he would get some action during the preseason finale, but it appears we'll get a heavy dose of Osweiler and Dysert.
The Broncos do have two more cuts to make, could one of them be a surprise?
