The Denver Broncos waived wide receiver Chad Jackson Monday, making room for Brandon Marshall to rejoin the 53-man roster. Marshall was reinstated Sunday, but the Broncos were granted a 54-man roster exemption to figure out who would be released to add their disgruntled wideout. Jackson ended up the odd man out.

Jackson, a former Patriot, actually joined the Broncos last year during the Mike Shanahan era. Assuming Head Coach Josh McDaniels had some say in Jackson’s status in New England as Offensive Coordinator, this is the second time McD has axed Jackson in less than 12 months.

Jackson, a fourth-year wide receiver, joined the Broncos as a free agent on Oct. 27, 2008. He totaled eight kickoff returns for 162 yards (20.3 avg.) and a 19-yard catch in four regular-season games for the Broncos.

    okay now jordan’s next

    We just cut a slightly older Darrius Heyward-Bey. Good riddance.

  • Thomas

    This was expected. This guy really just does not have what it takes to be a productive receiver. The only thing he can do is return kicks and punts, and he can’t even do that well.

    Kyle, Schefter, please…throw us a bone.

    How is Marshall ‘behaving’ since returning yesterday? The silence is deafening.

    part 2

    Did he address the team?

    Also, anyone else having issues with this web-site? Taking forever to open up and click to comments on my computer. Any suggestions?

    A33 – I noticed this yesterday and today. Sometimes I can’t get on the site at all now.

    anthony33 – We’ve outgrown our server. I’m switching this week, which is no minor process.

    I’ve been bummed about slow load times too. Thanks a lot for all the work you guys do. This site is definitely my first stop when I need my Broncos fix. Better than the MSM (of course) and better perspective than the kool aid junkies at MHR.

  • Kyle

    It’s not a contest; we’re all Broncos fans and we love the MHR. Thanks for the kind words.

  • WhidbeyBronco

    yeah, I love MHR too. There are some really knowledgeable folks over there that work HARD! But you know damn well what Steeplebomb means! LOL! Glad to hear you’re upgrading. TY and Thank You for all the work you do as well!

    Meanwhile, can’t wait to hear how BM’s behaving now…
