OFF-SEASON REPORT 1

Broncos released DLs Dewayne Robertson and John Engelberger, LBs Jamie Winborn and Niko Koutouvides, TE Nate Jackson, and SS Marquand Manuel.

I'm hoping to see that also.I would like to see the Steelers pick up either a free agent wide reciever or an offensive lineman so it takes a load off of what we have to draft.

Cheifs release QB Damon Huard and LB Donnie Edwards(this mean the Chiefs with the releases of just Edwards and Surtain that they have freed up $10.7 million in cap room today)

DT Shaun Rogers wants out of Cleveland.Here is a quote from his agent "Rogers has grown so disenchanted with the situation in Cleveland that he has asked the Browns not to pick up the $6 million option-bonus payment due to him next month, a source close to the defensive tackle said. Rogers would rather be released after one season with the Browns, despite still being owed another $15 million in guaranteed money. Some of Rogers' feelings stem back to two offseason incidents in which he believes Mangini disrespected him. The first time, Mangini walked into the Browns' training room and failed to say hello to Rogers. The next time, at a public charity function in which both men were in the green room, neither said hello to the other, and Mangini later said he didn't know Rogers was there".
