Default Broncos release Wiegmann, Jordan

The running scheme in Denver is changing and so are the players.

The Broncos released center Casey Wiegmann Tuesday as they continue to transition away from the zone blocking system that Mike Shanahan made famous. Wiegman is undersized for the position and 37 years old.

Running back LaMont Jordan was also released. A public supporter of Josh McDaniels, Jordan only saw 25 carries last season while playing behind Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter.

At 31, Jordan may struggle to find another job in the league.

Because he sucks, Jordan may struggle to find another job in the league.

No big surprises there, Weigmann was a pleasant surprise in his first year but just looked lost last season.

I wish him well.

Jordan is probably done in the NFL. In a couple of years he'll be one of those guys you completely forget ever having played for Denver. He never really recovered from that injury in 2006. His first year in Oakland he was a beast, but he never really managed to stay healthy in what should have been his prime years.

Derail? Hillis is the most interesting part of this news because of the questions it raises. It's not even a subject change. It's like the next logical thought. "Huh, Jordan's cut. I wonder what that means for Hillis?"

I'd say it probably means that Josh has enough faith in Peyton's ability to grasp the offense that he is willing to let him be the #3 back next year.

Beyond that, probably nothing.

Hillis is young and probably makes next to nothing so not much reason to cut him at this point.

Bowlen can afford to pay for 7th round fullbacks in the 3rd year of a rookie contract

I'll be happy if they cut him. The guy has a lot of potential, but no here with the Broncos.
Once he's cut, traded or what have you, we can then sign another washed-up RB to take his place and everybody will be stoked...
