Shamar Stephen was cut by the Broncos today. I really thought he had a great chance of making the 53 man roster, as he had a solid if not spectacular camp.

He's gotta get picked up soon.

The Broncos GM stated that after some players are official designated on IR, he expects to try to resign Shamar back onto the Broncos 53 man roster to begin the season. We’ll see if that happens, but the Broncos really liked him during the preseason and OTAs.
I hope so. He's been pretty consistent wherever he's went. Not flashy, but does what he needs to do and does it well.

Chance he bounces back on practice squad as he hasn’t been claimed off waivers as a now:

Worst case scenario is he hangs up the cleats and can put the $14M+ he has made in his career to good use.

Andrew Adams in his 3rd stint with the Bucs (sort of).

Well that’s frustrating…was really looking forward to watching Peart develop this year. He’ll still get snaps, but I think he deserves the chance to start.

I think they will both play but Matt had issues against New England in practice and during the game. It is a setback but I think he will bounce back.

TBF, Solder is a proven veteran that will perform. I think this gives Peart some extra time to develop more and when he eventually steps in to start, can pick up where the former lineman left off.
