ENGLEWOOD , Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos created more than $4 million in salary cap space by cutting a trio of veterans Monday, savings that could go toward a seasoned backup quarterback or middle linebacker should they seek to plug holes on their roster.The Broncos jettisoned sixth-year defensive lineman Zach Kerr, 10th-year outside linebacker Dekoda Watson and fifth-year returner/receiver Nick Williams .Kerr was due a $1.5 million salary this season with a cap hit of just over $2 million. Watson’s salary and cap hit were both $1.55 million and Williams recently signed a one-year, $805,000 contract that carried a cap hit of $645,000.“Well, one thing was to give them an extra week ahead of the major cutdown to maybe, possibly hook on with another team,” coach Vic Fangio said when asked about Kerr and Watson, who were released in the morning. “And we felt good about the other guys at that position.”In particular, Fangio pointed out the play of DeShawn Williams and Mike Purcell on the D-line.Williams, a third-year pro, was a cut casualty a year ago in Denver, then spent the season competing on the practice squads in Denver, Miami and Indianapolis before re-signing with the Broncos in May.“That’s why I play every day the way I play because I know every day is not promised,” Williams said. “Look at Zach, and that kind of hurt walking in and seeing one of the fellow guys who has proven that he can play and he’s not here. (It) just got real. … So, I just want to make sure I play hard for Vic because he brought me in. He didn’t know me from a can of paint. And I just want to do everything I can for him.”The Broncos don’t plan to bring in roster replacements for the players they cut because, Fangio said, “time’s not favorable for that,” with the preseason finale Thursday night and cuts coming Saturday.Injuries have impacted Denver’s plans for the 53-man roster. Inside linebacker Todd Davis , their leading tackler last season, tore a calf muscle on the first day of training camp and has yet to return to the field.“No, he won’t practice this week,” Fangio said. “He’s progressing, but not at the rate we had hoped.”Davis was originally expected to miss 3 to 4 weeks when he got hurt on July 18. His replacements have been OK, but nobody has really stood out, and Josey Jewell, the other starter, also was sidelined for a while.Three offensive players expected to make the team will be sidelined to start the season: fullback Andy Janovich, receiving running back Theo Riddick and rookie QB Drew Lock.Lock was on his way to securing the backup job behind starter Joe Flacco when he sprained the thumb on his right (throwing) hand last week, and quarterbacks Kevin Hogan and rookie Brett Rypien had middling performances in a 10-6 preseason loss to the Rams last weekend.Asked if he had seen enough from Hogan or Rypien to name one of them the backup QB to start the season until Lock’s return, Fangio said he still needed to see some separation Thursday night when the Broncos face the Arizona Cardinals.“That remains to be seen,” Fangio said. “I’ve seen some good play. I’ve seen some not-so-good, so I don’t know the answer to that just yet.”Bringing in a veteran QB “is always an option,” Fangio said, “but as you see out there, there’s not a lot of them available.”Notes: Fangio was Stanford’s defensive coordinator in 2010 and got to know Andrew Luck well and he was “like everybody else, surprised” over his decision to retire after a series of injuries sapped his passion to play. “I can tell you this: he didn’t do it in a harsh, quick way. I’m sure he gave it a lot of thought.” … TE Jake Butt (knee) was held out of practice Monday after his first action since tearing his left ACL last season. … Fangio said RG Ron Leary (knee) is still trending toward being available for the season opener. … Fangio said that he’s not considering coaching from the press box, where he’s spent most of his career: “No Dalton Risner Jersey , I’m not going to do that. But it is a better view up there.” How does a Los Angeles Chargers’ fan see the AFC West Landscape?" />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesMile High Report homepageHorizontal - WhiteMile High Reporta Denver Broncos communityFollow Mile High Report online:Follow Mile High Report on TwitterFollow Mile High Report on FacebookLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchMile High Report main menuFanpostsFanshotsSectionsBroncosOddsShopAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Broncos NewsBroncos ScheduleBroncos PodcastsBroncos Film RoomBroncos RosterBroncos Injury UpdatesFull ArchiveBroncos StoriesScheduleRosterStatsOdds Shop About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕3 & Out with Bolts From The Blue’s Michael Peterson New,14commentsHow does a Los Angeles Chargers’ fan see the AFC West Landscape?MDTOne of the things that always sticks in the back of my mind as I write about my favorite team is the ever present subconscious bias I have. To combat this, I’ve always attempted to look at the Denver Broncos from an objective standpoint. Even still, I know it’s there. That’s just one reason why I thought it would be illuminating to speak with fans from a rival team in the AFC West. Michael Peterson is the Deputy Managing Editor of Bolts From the Blue, SB Nation’s Los Angeles Chargers site.Our conversation has been lightly edited. 1st & 10Quietly the Chargers GM Tom Telesco has built one of the sturdiest rosters top to bottom in the entire league. Everyone’s got their eyes on Patrick Mahomes, but what are your expectations for the Chargers as we approach the 2019 season? Expectations are obviously pretty high, and it’s tough for them not to be. After a rough stretch in 2015 and ‘16, the team has finally had back-to-back winning seasons and are coming off a 12-4 season. We also can’t forget that they also got their first win at Arrowhead Stadium, and first playoff victory, in over five years.Mike Williams with a crucial touchdown. My expectations are also high, but I don’t believe they’ll be able to top their 12-4 record from last year. There were far too many games that came down to the end and they almost all worked out in the favor of the Chargers. However, a 10-6, 11-5 record is still very attainable if they win the games they should, at least on paper.There is likely a dropped game to the Raiders or Broncos, and likely a split with the Chiefs, plus tough match-ups against the Bears, Colts, and Steelers. Don’t get me wrong, I’m hopeful, but there’s plenty of challenges ahead.2nd and 8At least from what I’ve seen, the offensive line and linebacker corps look like the two biggest question marks. Would you say that’s accurate? What are the biggest concerns you have with the team?I’d say that’s accurate, for sure. The offensive tackle spot is the largest question mark, by far. With Russell Okung out with an “undisclosed injury” and the team doing nothing in the offseason to provide more depth outside of the Trey Pipkins’ selection in the third round this year, they really did nothing to make fans feel better about the lack of depth.The linebacker group is actually one of the more fortified positions, especially after the team signed Thomas Davis who is the picture of consistency and longevity in this league. In a room full of guys who can’t stay healthy, Davis needs to pass out all of his secrets to the rest of the defense. With Kyzir White coming back from injury and the emergence of Uchenna Nwosu at the OTTO position, they’ve got some young guys ready to roll behind incumbent starters Denzel Perryman and Jatavis Brown.Outside of the OTs, my biggest worry is with the defensive interior and whether or not the addition of Jerry Tillery will make the needed impact on the team’s recent deficiency at stopping the run. Other than that, I feel pretty good about the rest of the defense.Tillery was one of my favorite prospects in the 2019 Draft. 3rd and 5I always value outsider’s perspective as a way to combat my own orange shades. How do you see the Broncos moves since the teams last played to end the regular season? How do you see them this year?As an alumni of the University of Iowa, I know firsthand how much of a difference-maker Noah Fant is at the tight end position. He’s a mismatch waiting to happen and hopefully the Broncos are able to capitalize on what he’s good at instead of forcing him to be something he is not.Joe Flacco has the best arm of a Broncos’ quarterback that I’ve seen in some time and you just hope their offensive coordinator can utilize that with the great pass-catchers around him in Courtland Sutton and Emmanuel Sanders.They also had a heck of a draft, in my opinion.and Dre’Mont Jones may surprise a lot of people after he fell in this year’s draft.Going into this year, they’ve got the right pieces on offense and defense to be in any game against anybody. Bradley Chubb and Von Miller are going to be one of the best pairings in the NFL at their positions. Phillip Lindsay is going to be great and Royce Freeman may take a step forward, as well. There’s plenty to be excited about if you’re a Broncos’ fan in 2019.Von pressuring Rivers into a pick in the Broncos’ last game of 2018. 4th and 1: How do you foresee the AFC West finishing, and any final thoughts?My predictions:1. Chiefs (11-5)2. Chargers (10-6)3. Broncos (7-9)4. Raiders (6-10)My thoughts: I don’t trust the Raiders until they finally prove it. Also, Tom Cable kills offensive lines and I don’t trust that Trent Brown will pan out. The offense should be much improved with AB and Tyrell Williams, but that defense is still suspect. The Broncos will likely have more luck outside of the division than in it, leading to an average record. I think the Chargers drop one or more games than last year, but stay up in the division. The Chiefs are going to be the team to beat for me until proven otherwise, as well. I hope this division becomes the Wild West and leaves us fans wanting more in this coming season.
