IR....means what?? Out for the year or for the time being? Need a clarification by a higher power.

It says McD is going to address the media at 215 (now), anyone have a link to that?

Both were kind of teetering on the roster bubble.

Well I guess that helps clear up the Wide Receiver logjam.

WR 1- Gaffney, Decker
Slot- Royal, Stokely
WR 2- Thomas, Lloyd, Willis

And our secondary should look like this:

FS- Hill, McBath
SS- Dawkins, Bruton
CB1- Bailey, Smith
CB2- Goodman, Cox, Thompson

With Jones as a swing CB/S

It sucks to lose both of them, but it appears at least like we still have great depth at both positions.

Damn.

Was stoked to see if McKinley could stick around.

Awesome

This.

That's a great move. Both are young guys with potential. This way we can keep vets like Stokley for another year.

I bet they're not even injured.

This actually means that he will stick around. Instead of risking putting him on the practice squad and some other team signing him, he will be a Bronco til next year.

And as another poster mentioned it helps clear up the logjam an WR

It sure does, however ...I think the team would have been better served to allow Stokely to walk (which I figure was going to happen anyway) and let youth be served to vitale experience.

Barrett and Burton were probably the 2 best gunners in the league last year on punting ST's.

This is exactly what I was thinking. Guys with no place this year, but too much potential to let loose.

Yes and no. If we stay healthy, yes. If we lose more safety's or receivers, no. As has been mentioned, both are bubble guys.

Yeah that hurts, but Joe Mays should help soften the blow on Special Teams.

Perhaps they are clearing roster spots to bring in an OLB?

The Broncos have signed two wide receivers: Patrick Carter and Britt Davis. The team waived WR Patrick Honeycutt

While this looks bad. I agree with those who are happy. We can keep these players for another year. Both of whom I saw being cut due to the competition at their positions.

This sucks, while on the IR, they are not allowed to take part in any practices...just observe and work in the weight room

Not true. They can do any kind of rehab that helps them develop their football skills. While they can't participate in full squad practices, the gray area of that rule will allow them to catch passes, run routes, etc.

Same here, we talked about that a little earlier this year.

He showed flashes when he was out there, oh well.

Barrett's a huge loss on special teams. I was looking at this years Football Outsiders almanac and it specifically called out Burton and Barrett as two of the top gunners in the NFL.

Barrett was pretty damn safe considering his special teams play. McKinley though, was probably on the bubble.

If they weren't injured the team would've waited until final cuts to put them on IR.

McKinley was for sure gone, he's actually lucky he got put on the IR. He'll have a guaranteed pay check now.

When I was at practice earlier this week Cox was much better at returns than McKinley - so no problem there. I agree this is probably a way to keep McKinley around and develop him for another year. There's a logjam at receiver now, but Stokely for one could be replaced by a younger receiver in another year or two.

If you are Patriot then they can do football style drills, but the rest of the league that is a no-no. That what the Pats got in trouble for a couple of years ago, which lead to Spygate.

IR players get paid and can attend meeting they can not participate in organized football style drills. Call it rehab but that a strectch.

Jeez, you say it like that and I hope the league doesn't challenge the IR designation.

Stokley may get limited touches, but that guy can score TD's. He still has a year left in him at least.

Stokley has 108 receptions in the past 3 years, and 12 TD's. That's amazing. He's a great vet to keep on the team.
