They will let him go to CHI and come back and beat Denver.

What about the Comeback Package?

Does this help them financially at all? aren't they still on the hook for his full salary this year?

I wonder if it has anything to do with wanting to evaluate Weber, or keeping other teams from signing him off the practice squad? Also, holy balls.

Why waive a guy when TWO teams we have to face need a QB and another one in a playoff race needs a QB (Texans). Poor timing IMO.

Man, I just ordered my Orton jersey.

Seriously, I wonder why this happened now.

Wow...

Too bad this team doesn't support Tebow and was working on the Mighty Orton Flying Wing package.

Wouldn't be surprised at either the chiefs or the bears. Seems like strange timing to release him.

Is this Bowlen stepping in and putting the final word in on Tebow?

WTF for? Was having him on the team still a distraction? What if Tebow gets hurt, who backs up Quinn?

AAAAnd, the front office continues to fail, fail, fail. I'm more sure about Tebow's future in this league than Elways...
