You can cross Jeff Saturday off a list of possible Denver Broncos center candidates.
ESPN’s Ed Werder reported that QB Peyton Manning’s longtime battery mate has no plans of ending his retirement. Saturday, who retired after last season, is down to close to 230 pounds. Manning and Saturday played together from 1999-2011 in Indianapolis.
Manning and the Broncos have a hole at center. Dan Koppen suffered a torn ACL Sunday in practice and is out for the year. Regular starter J.D. Walton suffered an ankle injury last September, and he is out until at least midseason. Right now, guard Manny Ramirez is Denver’s starting center.
