The Denver Broncos have released veteran long-snapper Lonie Paxton in their first round of roster cuts.
Former coach Josh McDaniels brought Paxton with him to Denver from New England in 2009, signing him to a five-year, $5.53 million deal that called for him to make $875,000 this season and $885,000 next year.
The 13-year pro was supplanted by rookie Aaron Brewer, a 6-foot-5 undrafted free agent from San Diego State.
The Broncos also waived wide receivers Mark Dell and Cameron Kenney, tight end Anthony Miller, running back Xavier Omon, fullback Austin Sylvester, tackle Mike Remmers, guard Austin Wuebbels, linebacker Eliot Coffey, defensive end Cyril Obiozor, safety Anthony Perkins and cornerback Ramzee Robinson.
Defensive end Jason Hunter was placed on injured reserve with a torn right triceps.

With Peyton Manning and the starters in the game, the Broncos took a 17-0 lead, and dominated the NFC's runner-ups...

Undrafted rookie Aaron Brewer acknowledges he was surprised to beat out 12-year veteran and three-time Super Bowl champion Lonie Paxton for the Denver Broncos' long-snapping job.
Brewer was perfect on 18 snaps in the preseason and displayed his athleticism that allowed him to record 15 special teams tackles at San Diego State, including a-half dozen as a senior last year.

The Denver Broncos are going to have to send a lot more players packing before opening day. A quick look at the roster shows they still have six running backs on the roster, even after parting ways with Xavier Omon. Other positions are similarly crowded, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out. [DenverBroncos.com]

Peyton Manning vs. Eli Manning. The elite vs. the pro bowler. The one time champion vs. the two-time champion. Who fears who more?
