In a shocking move today the Denver Broncos have released inside linebacker Andra Davis. Since there has been no additions to the linebacker squad this comes as a huge surprise.Vic Lombardi tweets:
VicLombardi Wow…this one’s a bit of a shocker. Broncos release LB Andra Davis today.
Davis performed very well in his first year in Denver’s defense posting 90 tackles and 3.5 sacks. Having said that, Davis did wear down in the stretch. It is surprising that Denver would not try to keep him as a backup. The inside linebackers on the squad to replace Davis are Nick Griesen, who spent all year on injured reserve, and Wesley Woodyard who is smaller than some safeties at 222 pounds, and plays mostly in nickel packages.
This completely contradicts my earlier post stating Denver will be more offensive minded this draft. It seems that Denver is in win now mode. If Josh McDaniels and Brian Xanders feel as if you aren’t ready to win now, you’re gone.
The NFL Network stated that every team was at the Alabama Pro-Day, meaning that Denver was there to catch a glimpse of what Tuscaloosa has to offer. Perhaps they liked what Rolando McClain has to offer?
What do you think Bronco nation? Air it out!
