The Wrath of Shanahan -- Broncos Release S Roderick Rogers

Mike Shanahan made it very clear that he was none too happy with the performance of 2nd year safety Roderick Rogers.  The Coach also made it clear that it was Rogers, not Dre Bly, that blew the coverage on the turning point play of the game -- a 51-yard completion from JaMarcus Russell to former Bronco Ashley Lelie while the game was tied at 10.

Today, Rogers felt the wrath of Shanahan when he was given his outright release form the Broncos.  Does this mean the beginning of the Josh Barrett era in Denver??

The official release is below --

The Denver Broncos on Tuesday waived safety Roderick Rogers, Head Coach Mike Shanahan announced.

Rogers, a second-year player from the University of Wisconsin, saw time in Denver's last three games (1 start) and posted six tackles (4 solo) on defense along with two special-teams stops. He spent the first nine weeks of the season on the Broncos' practice squad before he was signed to their active roster on Nov. 4.
