After a hectic few days, we have a comparatively placid start to the second full week of March, with only this to report:
Doug Nienhuis‘ quiet Broncos career ended Monday afternoon when the team released him after a stint that covered nearly 17 months.
In that time, Nienhuis saw neither the field nor the 53-man roster in the regular season. He spent the last half of the 2006 campaign on the practice squad, then incurred a knee injury while allocated to NFL Europa last spring.
Nienhuis did not recover in time for training camp last summer and remained on the reserve/NFL Europa injured list throughout the season that followed.
