Broncos cut QB Mark Sanchez

Broncos cut QB Mark Sanchez

The six-year veteran was acquired by the Broncos in the off-season after Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler bolted to Houston in free agency.

Sanchez was let loose just before the 4pm ET (9pm BST) roster deadline but shortly after that time passed, the Cowboys revealed they had signed the 29-year-old. The Broncos cut Sanchez after failing to find a trade partner. And that carried plenty of weight in the decision-making process given Kubiak and John Elway, the Broncos' executive vice president of football operations/general manager, both have done the job, Elway as a Hall of Famer with the Broncos when Kubiak was his backup. He handled everything great.

"I don't know if it's ever going to hit me that I'm playing for my favorite team growing up or playing for America's Team", Presscot stated to Dallas Morning News. He wanted to stay here. "I think we did a good job of doing it tonight".

The Denver Broncos' door was still swinging from the exit of Mark Sanchez when the team announced it had signed Austin Davis to be the third-string QB.

Signing Sanchez is all about adding to the Cowboys' quarterback depth.

Hillman was the Broncos' leading rusher a year ago but played sparingly in the Super Bowl and his lack of special teams play cost him.

"He's coming in to learn the offense", Elway said of Davis. Denver is the first team since the 2001 Baltimore Ravens to try to go back-to-back after losing its top two quarterbacks. On Sunday, after the dust settles from all the league-wide transactions, the Broncos will sift through their options on the waiver wire and begin to form their practice squad, with up to 10 players.

Perhaps the day's most surprising move came in Green Bay where the Packers terminated the contract of veteran offensive guard Josh Sitton, a three-time Pro Bowler. Romo would miss the first seven games if he's on that list, and Sanchez could take that roster spot.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the team tried to trade Sitton before Saturday's 3 p.m. "He has like a quiet confidence about him, so I'm looking forward to seeing him play".
