Broncos cut a guy for being late, get in fights in practice

The Broncos did their best on Thanksgiving to prove they’re not soft.

Perhaps someday it will carry over into a game.

According to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com, an eventful day for the 3-7 Broncos included cutting a draft pick for being late to a team meeting, and having a practice which included a number of fights between players.

The Broncos released cornerback Lorenzo Doss, a 2015 fifth-rounder who has a reputation for being late. He had played in three games this year and was inactive for the other seven, and Broncos coach Vance Joseph was succinct when asked about his release.

“We’re just trying to get better as a football team, simply put,” he said.

Moss marks the third player released in the last nine days, a time span which coincides with their six-game losing streak, firing the offensive coordinator, benching another quarterback, and being referred to as “soft” by executive John Elway.

So their practice reflected a team trying to disprove that notion, as cornerback Chris Harris Jr. and rookie wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie were involved in one of the two fights.

“It’s not a good mood at all,” Harris said of the team as a whole. “We lost seven straight, it’s not a good mood at all.”

While his math is off, the theme is correct, and the frustration is beginning to show.

    It’s a good indication that your team is in disarray when the following occurs:

  2. Way to go out on a limb. Cut a guy who never plays for you to show you’re a tough organization. Cut a starter and then you can get back to us about getting tough.

  3. I could care less-no longer spend any time on Sundays with the NFL-some day there will be economic classes showing how quickly a seemingly lock solid, multi billion dollar brand can be shoveled under with morons running the show.

  4. “I could care less-no longer spend any time on Sundays with the NFL ”

    Classic

    Yeh, but as typical, spending lots of time on NFL chat boards talking about how you are no longer spending time with the NFL.

    Just like back in the day when people were “never going to watch baseball again because of Jackie Robinson”.

    NFL will get over you, there are plenty of fans to buy your tickets if you don’t show up and then some day when you get over yourselves, you might just come back and enjoy the game.

    In the meantime, feel free to exert your first amendment rights on the NFL news boards telling us how you never want to watch the NFL again.

  5. It’s obvious that Gary Kubiack was the only reason the Broncos became a very good team. Elway doesn’t have a clue other than hiring Kubiack.The sooner Elway is dumped the better.
