    It’s got to do with Tebow’s large salary cap number. The Broncos will put Weber on the practice squad and hope he sneaks through waivers.

    Nothing major here except John Fox cutting his boy from Carolina, Dante Rosario. I was hoping to see some fireworks, but as of right now, Tim Tebow is still on the roster.

    I thought Beals outplayed Harvey by a long shot.

    Practice squad Beals, Weber, Riley, Jeremiah Johnson, Kyle McCarthy, Britt Davis, David Anderson

    Oh wait a minute. They cut Adam Weber??? He’ll definitely get picked up somewhere.

    Ortons brother Greg didn’t make it…?
    Bummer for that family.

    Don’t understand why Eron Riley was let go…

    I for one am glad Cox is gone! He showed promise last year, until he screwed up off the field. His last preseason game was truly a display of poor decision-making and bad playing.

    wow letting WEBER go when he out performed the infamous Tebow? Ridiculous.

    I’m not even a Broncos fan, but it’s crystal clear Weber should stay on the roster. I’m sure another team will pick up him up judging by the overwhelming positive reports and a couple years down the road the Broncos Front Office will wonder why they didn’t retain him.

    I’m surprised Kyle McCarthy is the odd man out at safety. He seemed to be playing very well and he was flying around the field and making plays I hope he gets on our practice squad like last year..

    Looks like Tebow best try to talk Fox in to a Wildcat job or he will be getting bench blisters this year.
    Pray brother, it’s a long cold season in the Mile High…

    I absolutely despise the Doneys, but major kudos to them for waiving that POS Perrish Cox.

    Dude should be in jail awaiting trial like any of us would be…just hope no other team claims him.

    What a great move by the Broncos front office, trading Gaffney for Jarmon. Who needs a solid receiver when you can get a guy who you’re just going to cut anyway?
