Report: Broncos cut running back De’Angelo Henderson

  •  According to 9NEWS Denver’s Mike Klis Dennis Smith Jersey , the Denver Broncos have waived 2017 sixth round pick, running back, De’Angelo Henderson. This is a bit of a shocker but still not a huge surprise. Despite being a fan favorite, Henderson was surpassed by Phillip Lindsay on the depth chart and was on the roster bubble. The Broncos decided to move on and roll with Royce Freeman, Devontae Booker, and Phillip Lindsay at running back. The fate of seventh-round pick, Dave Williams remains unknown. Henderson was a sixth-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and quickly became a fan favorite. His play during the preseason was impressive, but it didn’t amount to many regular season reps. He had 7 carries for 13 yards for the Broncos which resulted in a poor 1.9 yards per carry. He did haul in two catches for 36 yards and his lone NFL touchdown.Henderson does have practice squad eligibility so he could land back there but first will have to make it through waivers unclaimed. There were reports that teams were showing interest in Henderson so we shall see how that goes. A nearly impossible task, choosing the top four Broncos defenders of all-time."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Broncos NewsBroncos 2019 Draft ClassBroncos PodcastsBroncos 2019 ScheduleKey Offseason DatesCommunity RulesFull ArchiveBroncos StoriesScheduleRosterStatsOdds Shop About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Who would be on your Broncos defensive Mt. Rushmore?New Karl Mecklenburg Jersey ,134commentsA nearly impossible task, choosing the top four Broncos defenders of all-time. Who would be on your Broncos defensive Mt. Rushmore?Here’s an off-season question to ponder if there ever was one - if there was a Mount Rushmore of all-time Denver defenders, who would be up there?The guys on 1st & 10 at 10 on Orange & Blue 760 opened up their segment today with Benjamin Allbright tackling that very question. They were giving him a hard time because he said it would be difficult to put Steve Atwater up there, not because he’s not a Hall of Fame level defender, but because there are too many great Denver defenders to choose from. While he took some good natured ribbing from Mr. Atwater himself, Allbright makes an interesting point. No matter how you slice it, you’re likely making an egregious omission if you try to narrow it down to just four.There’s the old-time greats like Louis Wright, Karl Mecklenburg, Tom Jackson Jared Veldheer Jersey , and Randy Gradishar; then guys like Steve Atwater, Champ Bailey, and Von Miller who are all Hall of Fame players, regardless of the fact that the committee continues ignore Atwater’s bid.So who would your top four be? Maybe it’s someone I forgot to mention. I don’t think you can go wrong no matter who you put up there, but I agree with Ryan Edwards, maybe we just build another mountain to fit them all!
