Yesterday, the Broncos released five offensive players. They were P.J. Pope, Chad Mustard, Clifford Russell, Alex Haynes, and Anthony Alridge. I was actually a little bummed that they let Mustard go. I know we already have Tony Scheffler, Nate Jackson, and Daniel Graham at tight end, but it’s tough to see Mustard go. Although Mustard played in some games last season, he didn’t put up any numbers. He was cut right after training camp, re-signed in October, waived after a month, and re-signed again after Jackson suffered a season ending injury. Believe me, I would rather see Scheffler, Jackson, and Graham at the tight end position, but Mustard has worked so hard to make it as a pro athlete. He is obviously a great personality to have on the team considering he was released and signed so many times during the season. He’s a diverse athlete, playing tight end, offensive tackle, and special teams last year. It’s hard to see Mustard go in and out of unemployment while athletes like Stephon Marbury are making $40 million for sitting on the bench. I would love to see Mustard make it somewhere if he doesn’t re-sign with the Broncos.
