Broncos cut former first-round pick

The Broncos finally have had enough of former-first round pick LB Jarvis Moss. As the Denver Post reported today, the organization announced it has released him.

Moss has been underwhelming since Denver chose him with the 17th pick of the 2007 Draft. In the 28 games he’s played in the past four seasons, he’s started only once (his rookie season), and he’s accumulated 3.5 sacks (none since 2008).

Moss Moss was supposed to help take over the post vacated by LB Elvis Dumervil when Dumervil tore his pectoral muscle in early August. But Moss broke his hand in training camp, and he never broke through to the starting lineup, and in the end, he only accumulated five tackles in nine games.

“He’s been a great kid for us, done everything we asked him to do. It just hasn’t been a perfect fit,” coach Josh McDaniels said. “Hopefully he can find a place that will be a better fit and suits what can do.”

LB Robert Ayers, another Broncos first-round pick, is close to returning from a broken foot, but let this be known: he hasn’t been stellar in his career so far either. In 20 games as a pro, he’s produced 1.5 sacks and 38 tackles. Still, he’s got better numbers than Moss and, since he was drafted in 2009, there’s still time to help him turn around his career.
