Richard Quinn released from jail, not from team

On the Internet, the only thing that travels faster than accurate information is inaccurate information.

And the worldwide series of wires and tubes invented by Al Gore has been buzzing today with the erroneous news that the Broncos have cut tight end Richard Quinn, the team’s second-round pick in the 2009 draft.

Apparently, Josina Anderson of FOX 31 in Denver misinterpreted the fact that Quinn has been released from jail as an indication that he has been released from the roster.

Quinn was jailed Monday as a result of an allegation of harassment arising from a domestic dispute.

So Quinn is out of jail, not out of a job.
