Surprised about Bannan. Not Williams, though. We weren't getting our return on investment.

Wow! Bannan is a shocker to me. Let's see... who do we have at DT? Well, there's... Guess we are looking at Dareus or Fairley.

Williams was due $1 mil bonus on third day of league year and $4.2 mil salary. Bannan was due $500,000 bonus on 5th day and $3.5 mil salary.

per mikeklis

i dont like cutting bannan, low salary and roster bonus. several denver reporters said they are cutting guys to save cash now.

Surely they'll try to get Bannon back at a reduced rate? Even if he did electocute a hamster with his roommate.

Vickerson hopefully gets resigned and Marcus Thomas depending on the labor situation with a rookie or two would still be good.

Very surprised about Bannan. What was he due to make next year? Maybe they didn't think he'd be as good a fit for the 4-3. With Thomas, Vickerson, Fields, and I think McBean all FAs, do we have a single DT on the roster at this point?

Good?!? Ummmm, what!? If they went into the season with only Vickerson, Thomas and a rookie or two at DT, they would be BY FAR the worst DT unit in the entire league on paper.

Surprised about Bannan, they must not think he is a good fit for the new scheme. Williams is pretty much washed up. That said, between these two moves and Thomas' contract situation being in doubt, I think it's pretty much a slam dunk that we are drafting either Dareus or Fairley. We've got as good as nothing at the DT spot right now.

Bannan was the best mCd pickup on the D side Surprised about him, I thought he could have played DE in the 4-3.

I think we definitely need to keep Thomas.....Vickerson could also be good, as he had a nice year last year....but, to cut Bannan, it just doesn't make sense, as he is a productive DL-very odd, I wonder what's up. Williams is done.

Me too. We'll see. This is room we needed to clear somehow, so this might be a good thing.

Like to see them get Dareus and one of the Big 10 linemen - Corey Liugit or Ironhead's kid.

This makes me wonder if there is a realistic shot at trading down at the #2 and in turn load up on DL...
