    I thought he was a pretty good pick with potential as a deep threat and future slot receiver. The roster has some junk (Bolden, Jammer, Lenon) occupying space so I was surprised to see the Broncos giving up on King so early.

      Dumb to have Jammer/Lenon on the roster over King who at least has some potential.

      Good luck to him.

        That is exactly how I feel. I would rather any of them be gone and he still be here. I can understand Lenon for LB depth, but we have depth in the 2ndary and I have not been impressed with jammer or bolden not too mention Jammer atleast probably isnt here next year where as I felt like King could be in the long term future given time to develope. I know I don't know more than our FO but this one just bugs me.

          While I agree with keeping the younger potential over aging veteran depth, I can understand why we let him go. Obviously with Woodyard out we needed Lenon to help at linebacker. Also our secondary has been pretty banged up with Bailey, Harris, and Ihenacho all missing time, so I dont blame them for wanting some versatile depth there with Jammer.

          Still, sad to see King go. I liked his potential coming out and thought he would be insurance/leverage in case Decker reaches free agency. Im just glad he didn't go to a team like the Patriots, Ravens, or Colts.

            Plus keep in mind that Caldwell has played exceptionally well on special teams and when his number has been called on offense. Tough to justify keeping a 6th receiver who would likely have been inactive for the duration of the season.

              Someone posted on another thread that if we released jammer it would cost us 5 million in cap space due to vet status?Lenon and bolden hmm.Why is lenon getting more snaps than irving.to me Lenon is useless.

                Stupid as hell, period

                Don't even get a chance to develop him instead we literally give CAR a 5th rd pick for no reason

                  Another wasted pick. Go figure. Meanwhile scrubs like Jammer Lenon and Boldin are still on the roster.

                    Great, give them another explosive weapon. Whoever plays QB for CAR next year, should be happy. Smith, Lafell, Olsen, Adams, and now King

                        Caldwell is a FA after this year, and King could of replaced him.

                        While he would of been an inactive on gamedays, isnt Jammer, what different is there?

                        Jammer barring injuries will be lucky to see the field, stupid to let King go.

                          it was interesting, fox was kinda like 'oh well' when the reporter told him king was gone. like, no biggie. maybe he is protecting the front office, maybe he was caught off guard, maybe king was a huge mistake and denver knows something others don't. who knows.
