    (Side Note: who knew the letters *** were a censored "word"?!?)

    Champ Bailey- During the new "self actualization and realization" training, Champ goes into a fit of crying after coming to grips with the fact that the title "Boss" outranks "Champ". He is found later that week in a pool of his blessed mothers blood rocking back and forth muttering "She always loved him best"

    Mike Shanahan- While not actually a "cut" per se, Mike is arrested and charged with several illegal activities relating to a laboratory found in a small locked hanger in Dove Valley. Many vials of DNA are confiscated, including John Elway's, Terrell Davis', and Eddy Mac's. Shanny's spine chilling cackle is recorded and played repeatedly on ESPN "Muahahahah!"

    All predictions guaranteed wrong, or your money back!

    Boss Bailey - He proves once and for all he really is just not that good. DJ is told to play SAM (being that really is his best position) and Woodyard impresses so much he is the starting WILL.

    Hamilton - Suffers another concussion and retires more than cut. Kuper takes over as LG.

    Colbert - Jackson tears it up in camp and gets an extension, Parker becomes one of those WRs to suddenly breaks out when he gets on a new team.

    Those would all be surprises, what would not be a surprise:

    Bronco fans are pissed about the wasted $$$ spent on Boss and Colbert instead of focusing on the good that is a productive Jackson/Parker. DJ refuses to re-sign and Denver drafts Brian Cushing to play SAM in 2009.

    Yeah maybe this thread should be expected cuts. Mike Bell is hardly a surprise. He was never a true fullback and we have three guys that can do what he does in Graham, Hillis and Sapp.

    My surprise guesses would be:

    Travis Henry: The Broncos dump his salary and get rid of an embarrassing character.

    Ben Hamilton: He is unable to come back from his injuries and play at the level that they need. With the need to get bigger on the O-line, and youth in Kuper and Lichtensteiger, Hamilton becomes expendable.

    Josh Barrett: Oh come on. Did you really think every player we drafted will make the team?

    Ryan Harris or Erik Pears: One of these guys will be gone, and whichever it is there will be shock.

    For the OP - those wouldn't be "surprise" cuts. Those would be practical cuts.

    I kind of hope Mike Bell stays - although I'm not confident at this point. Nate Webster and Glenn Martinez however should have been cut long ago.

    WRONG bell wont be cut if he was going to be cut it would have happened already. Webster is actually a very good back-up for mike and SLB in fact he had a better season than boss did last year, so dont6 count him out at all

    well, its almost june 1st so the cuts are coming. there's normally a few surprises so lets have a look.

    here are my top 3, maybe not massive surprises but not scrubs either.

    1 - MIKE BELL - he will be gone. we will keep HENRY/YOUNG/TORAIN/HALL as RB'S and HILLIS/SAPP as FB'S who can run the ball if needed. i felt bell overachieved a little in his rookie year but his potential was very limited. a little small and does'nt have great speed, he is a tough player but not good enough IMO at either RB or FB position.

    2 - NATE WEBSTER - this guy tackles almost as badly as ian gold did and if he isn't celebrating a tackle 15 yards downfield then he's picking up his helmet thats fallen off again!! i just don't believe this guy is worth keeping around and i have alot of belief that larsen could play the back-up MLB role and if there's any major problems this season then DJ can move back across and someone else can fill in at OLB (although only if there's a few injuries as we don't want DJ to keep moving and he's much better as an OLB) - i just don't think websters good enough to keep around.

    3 - GLENN MARTINEZ - i think he was gone as soon as royal was drafted. royal takes over as a returner and the back-up slot behind stokely. martinez did a decent job last year but he is very limited in the receiving game and struggles at times to get seperation, mainly due to his lack of strength, and was always a very average returner who offered very little. a good return one week against the titans but did he ever look dangerous at THAT speed???

    well, thats JMO - who are your cuts?
    I don't know that those would be "surprise" cuts.

    Surprise cuts?

    John Lynch - The front office thinks he's too old, too slow and can't cut the mustard anymore so they release him, renegotiated contract and leadership skills notwithstanding, and he goes and finds new life playing safety for Oakland for one more season.

    Brandon Marshall - the kid can't/won't grow up, so the organization releases him before he can cause anymore problems, and they start looking around for someone reliable.

    And finally (drumroll, please!) DJ Williams, who failed to excel at MLB last year, therefore it must be all his fault; in the long line of blame game that includes Larry Coyer, Jake Plummer and Gerard Warren, Williams is released where he finds new life with Tampa Bay and former coach Coyer and helps the Bucs over the hump and deep into the playoffs with their defense, just like the old times.

    Meanwhile, former VP in charge of offense, Heimerdinger at Tennessee manages to make the Titan's offense even worse, with Vince Young offense averaging only 17 points a game.

    Let him miss tackles and strike a pose elsewhere ...

    I really don't think the Broncos will have any surprise cuts...

    Unless it's some of the rookies they drafted .

    I could see some of the players that the Broncos added mid year last year getting the cut...

    But if players like Bell,Martinez got cut.. I would not think that is a suprise...I would just think that is doing business..
    i agree, those players are definately not surprises, in fact i would say if any of them make the roster i would be more surprised than if they got cut

    Quick question. Did we cut Nick Ferguson? I thought I read something about that. Or maybe I am confusing that with the whole Javon Walker to raiders thing.
    Nick Ferguson was an unrestricted free agent that Denver just didn't want back.

    As bad as the talent and depth on this team is, I don't know if there are many players that you could call a surprise cut, if you think he'll make the team he probably will and if you think there is a chance he could get cut it isn't a surprise if he does.

    Ekuban, Mallard and Peterson. One of these could get cut and would be a mild surprise.

    Louis Green could get cut and would be a mild surprise considering he just signed a 3 year contract extension a year ago.

    Hamilton would definitely qualify as a surprise, but that's just wishful thinking on my part, so I'm gonna go with Casey Weigman......

    For our runningbacks/fullbacks:

    Ryan Torain will either make the roster or go to PUP so he won't be cut in any scenario. Selvin Young will make the roster unless he gets injured and goes to IR or PUP. Travis Henry will make the roster unless Ryan Torain and Mike Bell both make the roster. Andre Hall or Anthony Aldridge will make the roster, the other will go to PS (Aldridge) or be cut (Hall). Mike Bell has to beat out Travis Henry unless Torain goes to PUP, then Bell can make the roster as 4th RB. Cecil Sapp will make the roster unless Mike Bell has a stellar camp. Peyton Hillis will make the roster unless he is injured.

    WR:

    Marshall, Stokley and Royal will make the roster. Jackson, Parker, Colbert, Martinez et al will fight for 2/3 spots. Colbert and Jackson have the inside track, but nothing is written in stone. I believe Jackson will make the roster and will be a day 1 starter, Colbert will have a good camp, but fail to stand out in preseason games but will make the roster. I think Martinez and Parker will both be cut.

    I could see a scenario in which either Selvin Young or Travis Henry is cut.

    It's not likely, but it's possible.
