Some of these decisions are a little surprising, but you can see what the Front Office and coaching staff were thinking. Keeping QB Zac Dysert around would make some think that John Elway is stubbornly collecting Quarterbacks, but Dysert has shown a great deal of improvement throughout Training Camp and backed it up with a consistent performance against the Arizona Cardinals.
