Broncos Waive Tyler Polumbus, Get Ryan Clady Back

It was a good day to be a Broncos fan. Not only did the team announce that Pro Bowl left tackle Ryan Clady will return to practice tomorrow, but Denver also waived tackle Tyler Polumbus.

I've written enough about Polumbus for one lifetime. I believe -- as Gregg Rosenthal states at PFT -- that the return of Clady to practice precludes him from being placed on the PUP list to start the season. It will be interesting to see if Clady is at 100 percent (or close to it) by the time the season starts.

"In other words, it's impossible to reconcile history with the idea that Clady's going to be back by August. So either one of three things are true here:

1) Clady doesn't have a torn patellar tendon

2) The Broncos and/or Clady are misinforming people about the expected timeframe of his injury

3) Clady is superhuman and will heal at a rate no NFL player ever has."

I imagine that you can tear something any number of ways. Maybe he tore it in a specific way that heals easily or doesn't impair greatly. So maybe he got lucky.

Lots of crazy news for Broncos today, including that potentially reformed uber-bust Jarvis Moss will be starting across from Robert Ayers... two #1 draft picks.

What I like about this team this year is that while there's considerable room for uncertainty, there's also a lot of possible upside if things work out right. Whereas with a lot of other teams, you generally know what to expect at most positions. If Mario Haggan is the worst starter on our defense this season, then that's not *horrible* anyway...
