Why did Broncos cut Davis?

Posted on: March 11, 2010 6:45 pm

The Denver Broncos have done some good things this off-season. Adding defensive linemen Jamal Williams, Jarvis Green and Justin Bannon will help their run defense.

So why did they release starting linebacker Andra Davis Thursday?

Davis is good against the run, but he's always struggled when matched in pass coverage. The Broncos need more athletic ability inside, which is why they probably cut Davis loose.

I think it's a strange move. Davis was a productive player for them last season. If you're trying to improve the run defense, why let him go?

Then again, this Broncos regime doesn't do things we expect. After all, they did trade Jay Cutler.

Why did Broncos cut Davis?

Apparently Pete missed the last game of the season last year, where, with the playoffs on the line, Andra Davis and the Broncos defense gave up 269 yards at home to Jamal freaking Charles.

Andra Davis does not help the rushing defense.

Why did Broncos cut Davis?

Cleveland is perenially at the bottom of the league in rushing yards against and they let Davis go last year without even giving him an offer. Need I say more?

Why did Broncos cut Davis?

I agree with the first post.  The guy is 32 years old and down the stretch last year he just couldnt get it done.  But on the flipside I personally wouldve kept him just for added depth.  Why let a good player go?  If hes not a starter then you put him 2nd string.  But also maybe if you do that he gets pissed and starts Cryin like a bish the way Cutler, Scheffler, and Marshall have.  So he probably wouldve been gone anyways.  So coach is like we will just cut him because we cant put him as a backup he will cry like a bish.  Who knows?  The NFL is hard to guage and we all have our opinions.  But what it really all boils down to is money.  Thats what this world revolves around unfortunatly.  peace guys

Why did Broncos cut Davis?

But why cut someone before you find a replacement?  As far as I know the Bronco's don't have a center yet either.

Why did Broncos cut Davis?

Maybe they released him because he's 32 years old.  The MLB position needs youth and athleticism.  Why keep an aging MLB who sucks in pass coverage?
