Broncos Cut Powell, Others.

September 4, 2009

Picture 1As of 3:20 the Denver Post and the Colorado Springs Gazette are announcing that 10 players have been cut throughout the day. 

The biggest of the 10 names would be Carlton Powell. The Defensive Tackle was thought to have been a great fit for the 3-4 defense and the Broncos in general. While he was a Mike Shanahan guy, McDaniels and Nolan had been complimentary towards him and we all assumed he would at least make the roster.

Here are the current cuts:

C Kory Lichtensteiger

DT Carlton Powell

LB Lee Robinson

RB Marcus Thomas

OT Clint Oldenburg

DE Matthias Askew

OG Matt McChesney (Injured Reserve)

QB Ingle Martin

CB Rashod Moulton

WR Nate Swift

I would say that Carlton Powell is the most surprising obviously, but I pretty much saw Lichtensteiger coming. Ingle Martin is a bit surprising, but it is good news, because we can now assume that Kyle Orton and Chris Simms could both be ready to play.
