Broncos have released Todd Davis

The Denver Broncos have released ILB Todd Davis.

In a shocking move, the Denver Broncos have released their starting inside linebacker Todd Davis. Davis had been battling through a calf injury that had sidelined him through the second half of training camp, but had by all accounts been on track to start in Week 1.

Davis, 28, is a former undrafted free agent out of Sacramento State who has started for the Broncos since 2016. His departure apparently opens things up inside for Josey Jewell or for one of the two newly acquired players in Mark Barron and Austin Calitro.

The ILB position seemed a bit shaking from the outside looking in before this surprise move, but now there will be plenty of questions for the Broncos at this position heading into Week 1. The move will save the Broncos $4.5 million on Davis’ remaining salary for 2020.
