Broncos release Wiegmann and Jordan

The Denver Broncos released center Casey Wiegmann and third string running back Lamont Jordan.

LaDainian Tomlinson

Wiegmann currently is riding a 142 consecutive games played streak dating back to 2001, the longest streak for any center in the league. He made the Pro Bowl with the Broncos in 2008.

It is no surprise to see the Broncos part way with Wiegmann as they look to get bigger on the offensive line to fit more of a power blocking scheme that coach Josh McDaniels is trying to slowly transition to.

Jordan played in nine games last season and collected just 86 rushing yards.

This roster move might lead to the Broncos making a move at a free agent running back and many talented veterans have been released, including LaDainian Tomlinson, that could be potential targets for the team.

Another third down running back could help greatly bolster the depth to the Broncos running back core and Tomlinson could be a perfect mentor for a guy like Knowshon Moreno as he continues to mature in the NFL.

L.T. wants to go to a proven winning team, like the New England Patriots or Pittsburgh Steelers, but perhaps McDaniels could convince the legendary running back to come to the Mile High City just as he did with Brian Dawkins a year ago.
