    The Denver Broncos have parted ways with tackle-turned-guard Menelik Watson. The former 2nd round pick of the Oakland Raiders joined the Broncos prior to the 2017 season on a rather generous contract relative to his prior performance. After Watson failed to live up to his pay check, John Elway is cutting bait.

    Broncos fans have been calling for this move ever since Watson turned in a terrible showing at right tackle last season, grading out as one of the worst tackles in the NFL. Now the day has finally come.

    This also means that the only training camp competition for the Broncos starting O-line spots is effectively over. There had been some question whether Watson might unseat Connor McGovern from the right guard spot, but now the Broncos 2016 5th round pick has secured his starting role.

    Watsonís dead money is a bit of anchor on the Broncosí salary cap, but as guaranteed money it was a sunk cost anyway. Despite the expensive mistake of signing him in the first place, Iím glad to see the team move on and perhaps give someone new the opportunity to develop behind Leary and McGovern.

    Watsonís dead money figure of $6,833,333 will push the Broncosí total dead money up to $9,318,214. Thatís the 15th highest figure in the league as things stand today.
    Hopefully Elway is done with stupid mistakes for a while.

    From the games I remember last season, Watson was good at pass protection but lamentable against the run. He wasn't all round awful.

    Another o-line bust, Elway and company really need to start doing their homework or at least find someone who know how to evaluate o-line talent.

    Actually, Watson was pretty bad all around. In pass-pro he was the defenses 12th man

    His PFF grad for 2017 was just bad: 41.1 pass (7.5 sacks), 39.8 run.

    Somehow he graded out better in pass blocking than run blocking which was more his strength, but that's PFF for you.

    So this is good in that we're getting rid of a bad player, but this probably means we aren't cutting Lynch.

    Come on now, Stevie is way too undersized to play O-line.
