Denver Broncos release three: Parker, Mallard, Lorne

Tuesday is the deadline for the rosters being trimmed to 75, yet today Denver released three players.

Veteran wide receiver Samie Parker cut.
Most notable of the cuts is veteran wide receiver Samie Parker who came to the Denver Broncos via free agency, Parker was a long time Kansas City Chief. He came at a time prior to the Broncos signing wide receiver Darrell Jackson, who is expected to start opposite Brandon Marshall/Eddie Royal this season.

The Denver Broncos also cut defensive tackle Josh Mallard and wide receiver Lorne Sam. Josh Mallard is a major surprise, as he has seen time with the first-team defense on several occasions during training camp and in rushing situations. Mallard played in only a couple of games last season, but was able to compile three sacks.
