Evening Denver and San Diego news and notes
By Bill Williamson
Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson
There was a lot going on in Denver and a little going on in San Diego to wrap up a Thursday night.
The Broncos cut three players Thursday: safety Herana-Daze Jones, running back Kestahn Moore and cornerback Rashod Moulton. None of the moves were a surprise.
- Brandon Marshall pleased the kids of Denver on Thursday, but he was mum on his stalemate with the Broncos. Had Marshall cancelled his clinic because of his fight with the Broncos, he could have further lost public support.
- Kyle Orton talks in a radio interview about being named Denver's starting quarterback.
- Don't be surprised if the Broncos defer some of the signing bonus in their rookie contracts. There was a small deferral of the $57,000-plus contract signed by seventh-round pick Blake Schlueter. The deferral is just a way teams can pay some signing bonus money at a later date.
- The Chargers extended their radio deal.
