    Lilja must really be happy, turkey-neck Manning begs him to come out of retirement to play center for him then gets his butt cut.
    You’re welcome Peytom.

    Every team cuts some draft picks. ALL cuts speak to the depth of team’s rosters.

    You could also say that the broncos have a lousy scouting department OR their personnel men were both in jail at the time of the draft OR in a bar.

    Whatever….Lilja was getting pushed around way too much in preseason to be a viable option…he belongs on the couch.
