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.
