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.

  1. Funny who gives a crap stat:
    LaDainian Tomlinson(Rd 1) and Lamont Jordan(Rd 2) were both drafted in the 2001 draft. LT was able to jump right in as the lead RB while Lamont Jordan was stuck behind Curtis Martin for his first 4 seasons.
    Over their 9 year careers LT averaged 320 carries per season for 4.3 ypc while LJ averaged 99 carries for 4.2 ypc.
    Poor LJ. Woulda Shoulda Coulda.

  2. Wiegmann could be going to Washington, but i am waiting to see if Chris Kuper gets released so the Redskins can sign him and Ben Hamilton.

    Zoology, you couldn’t be more right.
    And mwcarolina, the Redskins are welcome to Ben Hamilton. Just what Shammy likes – a flyweight guard who can be walked back by linebackers and is absolutely useless in the red zone.

  4. Weigmann got manhandled last year in every must have short yardage play I watched last year, he is done, and retiring.
    Happy trails Casey, he’s a good guy that was playing at an unnatural weight for his body.
