The Denver Broncos had a busy Wednesday as they decided to move on from edge rusher Randy Gregory, while also activating Baron Browning off the PUP list. The only true non-participant for Wednesday was Javonte Williams who has quad issue. Everyone else looks like they are progressing back into action for Week 5.
It looks like the move away from Gregory had more to do with head coach Sean Payton wanting to get more playing time for the younger players.
“In fairness to the question, it was a number of things,” Payton said. “He played 30 snaps last week. We just felt like these other guys were playing better. It happens in this league. We want the best players possible. There was a combination of things. Those other guys stepped up, and we felt like they’re playing better.”
Aside from not having Aaron Rodgers available, the New York Jets are reasonable healthy too. Denver’s defense needs to play a great game, because this Jets defense looks really good.
