Broncos Cut RB Montee Ball & C Gino Gradkowski


The Denver Broncos have announced the release of RB Montee Ball and C Gino Gradkowski on Sunday.

  • Broncos claimed C James Ferentz off waivers from Texans.
  • Broncos claimed TE Mitchell Henry off waivers from Packers.

There was talk that Ball could be dealt before Saturday’s deadline to get down to 53 players, but reports later said that he was being retained.

It will be interesting to see if a running back-needy team like the Texans show interest in him in the coming days.

Ball, 24, is entering the third year of his four-year, $3.53 million rookie contract that included a $964,896 signing bonus. He stands to make base salaries of $594,938 and $752,407 over the next two years.

In 2014, Ball was limited to appearing in just five games and rushing for 172 yards on 55 carries (3.1 YPC) to go along with nine receptions for 62 yards receiving and one total touchdown for the Broncos.
