Denver Releases A Young QB


The Tom Brandstater era in Denver is over. Tim Tebow watchers will now breathe a sigh of ease as Tebow is the likely “undisputed” thrid quarterback on the roster.

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels brought partial clarity to the quarterback situation Friday by releasing Tom Brandstater.

Thus, it’s official: Tim Tebow has been promoted to No. 3 quarterback. Even with veterans Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn, and the rookie Tebow in the Broncos’ quarterback stable, Brandstater’s release was surprising because as a second-year player who showed promise in the preseason last year, he was practice-squad eligible.

“I’m learning as you go you can’t worry about things you can’t control,” said Brandstater, a sixth-round pick out of Fresno State last year.

“I’ve enjoyed my time in Denver. The people were great, the fans were great, they’ve got a good team coming up. I will still be rooting for them, hopefully (while I’m) with another team.”
