Bad news for the Denver Broncos director of player personnel Matt Russell.

A Summit County Judge has sentenced Denver Broncos director of player personnel Matt Russell to seven months in jail for pleading guilty to DUI, careless driving, and possession of an open container of alcohol.

Some in attendance for the sentencing were upset that the case was not tried as a felony.

According to ProFootballTalk's sources Russell will be eligible for work release. Also, under a Colorado law that provides a day-for-day credit based on time served, Russell’s sentence should be completed in 3.5 months.

If allowed to continue his employment with the Broncos, Russell will serve work release out of Arapahoe County, which is the closest facility to Broncos' headquarters.
