The Denver Broncos have come to the decision that many saw coming and have released QB Peyton Manning who was due 19.2 million if he reamined on the team. Coach BBJ said he thanks Peyton for all his hard work and continued leadership even after the decision to start Brock Osweiler. Coach BBJ also stated that if the opportunity to bring peyton back at a reasonable number for both sides that he wouldn't close the door on that happening. Kicker Matt Prater after cutting off talks after the broncos offered over 4 million per year was slapped with the franchise tag. Broncos Management said that while it's sad that they couldn't work out a long term deal they are glad they are saving a little money by using the TAG and will look at using it again if Prater's price doesn't come down next season.
