Broncos release four as roster cutdowns begin

Teams across the NFL has to pare their rosters from 80 to 75 players as the League prepares for the start of the 2009 Regular Season in 9 days.  For the Broncos, that meant saying adios to 4 players, since Brandon Marshall is on the Reserved-Suspended list (currently, anyway).

As such, the team released P Britton Colquitt, WR C.J. Jones, TE Jeb Putzier and C Blake Schlueter.

Schlueter was a 7th-round pick in this past April's draft, and Colquitt seemed to be making a late run at Brett Kern's starting job, with two beautiful punts inside the 5-yard line Sunday Night.  Too little, too late, I suppose.

The Broncos now sit at 75 players for Thursday's preseason finale against Arizona.  Teams have to be at 53 players by Saturday, 9/5.
