Four quarterbacks are indeed too many - at least for the Broncos. Denver took care of their logjam at QB by releaseing Tom Brandstater today, according to the National Football Post. Brandstater was drafted by Josh McDaniels and the Broncos in the 6th Round of the 2009 Draft and became sort of a cult hero with Broncos fans after a solid performance against the Arizona Cardinals starting defense in the final Pre-Season game last season.
Some were even hoping that Brandstater would get a shot to compete for the starting job this season.
Once the Broncos acquired Brady Quinn from the Browns and drafted Tim Tebow in the 1st Round of the 2010 NFL Draft, the writing was on the wall for Brandstater. By releasing him now, the Broncos have allowed Brandstater plenty of time to find a new home - and he should be a pretty attractive commodity in a League starving for quarterback talent.
Best of luck to TB in his future endeavors.
