ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos have released nine-year veteran defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson and third-year safety Duke Ihenacho, a starter last season who had nine tackles in the Super Bowl.
They also let go of third quarterback Zac Dysert, an Ada grad who starred at Miami (Ohio) and made the 53-man roster last year.
The Broncos hope to sign Dysert to their practice squad on Sunday but other teams will also likely show interest in Dysert.
The Broncos added plenty of depth following their Super Bowl loss to Seattle, and Vickerson and Inhenacho paid the price.
Slow to recover from a dislocated hip that sidelined him down the stretch in 2013, Vickerson was unable to fend off free agent Marvin Austin.
Ihenacho was the odd man out in a crowded secondary that features free agent acquisition T.J. Ward at strong safety.
Teams must trim rosters to 53 active players by 4 p.m. ET.
