DENVER, Colo.- When the ax falls it falls hard and on Monday it fell hard in thirteen different directions as the Broncos trimmed their roster to the league mandated 65-player maximum.
The most surprising of the cuts was veteran center and long snapper Davids Diaz-Infante, who was specifically brought in during training camp to take over the snapping duties after potential candidate Darius Clark fractured his forearm.
The release elevates former Colorado Buffalo Matt Lepsis into the role on field goals, extra points and punts.
Other players released include:
WR Charlie Adams, Hofstra
DT Cyron Brown, W. Illinois
S Darius Clark, Duke
S George Coghill, Wake Forest
LB Trev Faulk, Louisiana St.
C Mark Fischer, Purdue
CB Delvin Hughley, Jacksobville St.
QB Todd Husak, Stanford
DT Jerry Johnson, Florida St.
T Jared Peck, N. Dakota St.
C Jason Scukanec, BYU
T Brandon Winey, Louisiana St.
