      Just kidding. Just read it on Denverbroncos.com....

      I'm not worried about it. Meadows was hurt and wasn't starting anyways. Mustard is going to be a project at OT.

        Wow

        I realize he may not have recovered enough to be ready for the opener but WOW are we lacking depth!

            don´t forget that Meadows got cut from the colts due to injury, I don´t know if it´s the same injury, but mustard is younger and have less injury history

                        Meadows Out, Mustard In

                        http://www.denverbroncos.com/page.ph...4&storyID=7161

                        AMHERST, N.Y. -- Less than 24 hours before opening the regular season against the Buffalo Bills, the Broncos continued tweaking their roster, re-signing Chad Mustard while releasing offensive tackle Adam Meadows to make room.

                        Mustard had been waived at the roster deadline seven days earlier following his training-camp conversion from tight end to right tackle. He played extensively on the offensive line during the preseason games against Dallas and Arizona, particularly in the loss to the Cowboys when injuries to Meadows, Ryan Harris and Matt Lepsis whittled down the team's complement of tackles.

                        Meadows, who was signed during 2006 training camp, had worked his way up to the first team this summer, moving onto the No. 1 unit during the week of practices against the Cowboys. But during the afternoon session on Aug. 16, he injured his calf muscle during move-the-ball work towards the end of practice.

                        He did not return to the practice field for the remainder of training camp and would not play throughout the rest of the preseason. Erik Pears, who had been working with the first unit prior to Meadows' ascension, returned to right tackle and would subsequently begin the regular season on the first team at the slot.

                        Prior to this summer, Mustard's experience at tackle in the NFL came during 2006 organized team activities, when the Broncos worked him out at the position before moving him back to tight end. He subsequently made the team's 2006 roster at the position and started towards the end of the season when the Broncos opened some games in two-tight end formations.

                        Mustard, who was primarily a short-yardage and goal-line tight end last year, also lined up as an eligible receiver for a goal-to-go play in the preseason loss to the Cowboys on Aug. 18. He becomes the second former Broncos tight end to make the roster as a tackle in the last three years; Dwayne Carswell made the 53-man roster in 2005 after playing tight end for 11 seasons. Left tackle Matt Lepsis also has tight end work on his résumé, but his duties at the position came at the University of Colorado.

                        Heading into the regular season, the Broncos now have four tackles -- Lepsis, Pears, Mustard and Harris, who has been sidelined with back problems since the Broncos' second week of training camp. Harris, a third-round pick from Notre Dame, did not play in the preseason.

                          That's cool....I never understood the facination by the Broncos about Meadows. To me, he has been a waste of a uniform since he was signed.

                          Hopefully, Chad can provide some extra Mustard in short-yardage, double-TE sets

                            Mustard converted to T. Basically, we have a converted TE playing T for the first time in his career as a backup.

                            I don't feel too good about our oline right now in terms of depth.

                              I totally agree about Meadows, but I gotta say that to me the O-line is the biggest concern for this team right now. Not alot of depth at all. Hopefully we pull something out of the hat.
