Denver Broncos: 5 worst moves on the final 53-man roster
5. Letting fullback Adam Prentice go
This is also nit-picky. In fact, most of these gripes are.
For the record, I think the Denver Broncos’ 53-man roster is really strong and they did a good job assembling it (and the practice squad) for the most part.
I would have loved to have seen the inclusion of Adam Prentice on the 53-man roster and the inclusion of a traditional fullback in the offense.
Andrew Beck is much more in the H-back/tight end/special teamer role. Prentice is a throwback fullback who was flat-out flattening guys in the preseason.
He did a good enough job that he was poached by the New Orleans Saints on the waiver wire, and he’ll be able to contribute there right away.
The New Orleans Saints determined that Adam Prentice was a fit for their offense and special teams, but he wasn’t good enough for Pat Shurmur and Tom McMahon?
I’m sure the Denver Broncos would have loved to have Prentice back in the fold as a practice squad player, but now they are going to miss out.
Denver Broncos: Nate McCrary a dynamic addition at running back
The Denver Broncos surprisingly claimed a rookie running back off of waivers, stealing Nate McCrary from the Baltimore Ravens. What does he bring?
Although on the whole, the roster is impressive, this move is a bummer considering the Broncos could have still executed their plan with Shamar Stephen and Cam Fleming, and they could have just cut Jonathan Harris in the initial wave and kept Prentice aboard.
