Broncos release andre brown

http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Source-Andre-Brown-released-by-Broncos.html

That didn't take long. I did like the brown pickup based on the potential he showed in the giants preseason, but the maroney trade made brown expendable.

Update:
Gary Miller on his show this morning said the Broncos are putting Brown on the practice squad.

I liked Brown's upside more so than Ball, but they aren't going to cut a RB that knows the playbook and has been with the team through the duration of offseason workouts.

i think his salary was guaranteed regardless, so hes making quite a bit of scratch for being a PSer

I'd just like to say that I think Josina does a great job.

I'm not going to go into specifics, but... really, a great job.

Don't think he's been in the league long enough to get the guaranteed salary treatment.

Seriously, I don't know who Josina is, since I don't live in Denver. I just wanted to get in on the joke.

Well there is that and also the Ball is the only one who hasn't been hurt. You gotta keep one guy who's not playing on tender recently mended muscles, lol. And it's not like he looked like crap either. He had some really nice runs in preseason.

I haven't heard any "official" confirmation Brown is going to the practice squad - just Gary Miller's comment on his show this morning that he heard that from the Broncos. Maybe they are waiting for Brown to clear waivers.

I would've liked to see more of the guy, for sure.
Oddly enough, he was the only one healthy enough to be given a shot, but then again, we'd brought in, Fargas, LenDale, Brown, and now Maroney which pretty much says the coaches didn't think he's that good.
He had a good camp. He definitely deserves a shot.

a) Is she mentally handicapped, or just a twitter-brained moron?

b) Any varification on P-Squad moves?

isnt it all players on week 1 roster get their base salary guaranteed for the year?

My understanding is that only applies to vets of 4 yrs. or longer. This would explain why McD may have waited to pursue Marony.

On McD's press conference today, I thought I heard him say "Tito" Brown was put on the PS, then said separately that Andre Brown was released. Not sure Andre Brown is going to the PS, but I may have misheard.

I think the good news is they still like Buck enough to give him a roster spot.

Yes, apparently that may be true, even if temporarily, until they find out what they got in Marony. I just got this gut feeling that they think C-Buck may be nearing the end.

Wouldn't call that 'good news'. There's a handfull of guys that shouldn't be in the NFL on our roster. 'Good news' would have been if one of them, like Buckhalter, was cut instead of Brown.

Maroney is injured. Buck stays until LoMo is healthy. Brown was moved to PS. Would not surprise if Buck was cut when LoMo is ready and Brown moved bavk up. We'll see.

I like most here like Brown's back side.

Thank God you alone determines who belongs on an NFL roster and who doesnt. How would GM's and HC's function without your guidance?

Jackass.

Haven't seen any reports of Brown signed to the Broncos P-Squad. Any links? The Broncos weren't the only team interested when he went on waivers so he'll prpbably end up on another roster instead of our P-Squad.

Look in the Maroney thread I posted an article from the DP
