According to 9NEWS Denver's Mike Klis, the Denver Broncos have released center Gino Gradkowski.

This move was expected after the Broncos claimed former Houston Texans center James Ferentz off waivers.

Gradkowski joined the Broncos in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens back in April. The Broncos sent a 2016 4th round pick to the Ravens for Gradkowski and their 2016 5th round pick.

Gradkowski was the Broncos starting center throughout the spring and summer. He was the Broncos starting center for the beginning of Training Camp, and but eventually lost the job to Matt Paradis one week in. Since then Gradkowski has been working with the second team.

This trade doesn't look for the Broncos now that they are releasing him. The Broncos should get a 4th round compensation pick this winter to give them a 4th round pick, but it still sucks losing that 4th.

The Broncos have at least one more roster move to make before the day is done. Their roster currently stands at 54 players.
