Broncos to reinstate Matt Russell after 60-day suspension

Broncos player personnel director Matt Russell, who was suspended indefinitely without pay in July after his drunk driving arrest, is about to get back to work.

Russell will be reinstated on Monday, after having been suspended 60 days, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network had previously reported that the Broncos’ plan was to reinstate Russell after Week Two, pending NFL approval.

The Broncos had two of their top executives, Russell and pro personnel director Tom Heckert, arrested for drunk driving over the summer. Heckert is already back at work after serving a 30-day suspension.

    The Broncos is the girl that just wasn’t pretty enough to get asked to the prom. So she just sat at home on her couch and cried as she watched Joe Flacco won Super Bowl MVP.

    Who wins the first game doesn’t matter, who wins the last game is all that counts! Chumps…becareful when u give Payton Manning a slice of that game 1 victory cake – wouldn’t want him to choke ^_<

    Besides… there are plenty of us still around that believe at least one of those two trophies in Dove Valley don’t belong there as well… considering they “massaged” the cap to be able to get it….

    Let me get this straight, after the antler spay drama, the emo crap about this being ray the murderer’s last ride, getting all the calls in Denver and still needing a miracle to win you think your team is better. Then the win is only there against San Fran because of a holding non call that won the game for the ratbirds. So your team has at least 2 games you should have lost and you are a fool if you can’t admit it. And you are talking? Well congrats your the prom queen that won because you rigged the votes. take your dance in your nasty spandex!
    Then you come back talking about how your team is better than last year and when the officiating is neutral you get SPANKED to the point that the loud mouth suggs has to waive off the cameras cause he can’t handle the shame, and you are trolling and talking smack!? Even when your team looks like the girl voted “most likely to be a bad hair salon girl” you are gonna troll and talk huh?
    Well go and talk cause the last game played is the one where flacoo choked on his betters nuts! Good luck with the Browns, you might win a game!!

    @bwnasky You can think all you want, but the cap violations didn’t give Denver a advantage, it helped Denver pay for a stadium. Go ahead and google it! It is a Washington post article…

    Actually Salutethis, no matter how you slice it, they cheated the cap to defer payments of bonus money to their players in order to solve a cash flow problem in order to pay for the new stadium. Now, whether you like it or not, the other way they could have done that would have been to let some high priced talent go and conform to the rules of the cap and try to win without Elway or Davis or any of the other “several” players mentioned in the Washington Post article. So whether you like it or not, that “massaging” the cap did help the Broncos secure their Lombardi trophies.
