I will miss Mike Patt.. but this is a step in the right direction... We need VIOLENT defensive players. I wonder if we would've tried to TRADE any of these guys for draft picks, before releasing them.

Mike Patterson will be missed. In their prime, Patterson and Broderick Bunkely were one of the toughest DT tandems in the NFL. I wish him nothing but the best.

I hope this was purely because he did not fit 4-3 under or 3-4 or whatever scheme Davis is planning on running, and not because of his film from last year. This guy has simply done nothing but exactly what the coaches have asked since he came to this team.

He is the last guy on the roster that could of been included in that mysterious group of malcontents from last year. Seriously doubt Cullen was in the group either. I guess the character guys are getting added later?

Will miss ya Mike. Go to the Broncos and win a SB.

duece...

I think they wouldn't have gotten any trade offers because of how deep the draft is at DT

The are releasing money first, followed by age, followed by scheme, followed possibly by draft and free agency...offensive cut or trade coming soon.

Neither of these released players can be labeled "malcontents". Despite Jenkins row with reid last year, it was out of character and he's totally a team guy. Good luck to both. We're movin' on...

Patterson was a good run stopping tackle here for years. He fit well next to Bunkley in Johnson's scheme. He had to read and react which requires good instinct and he had that as well.

these sre not bad moves by anymeans but are they really nessasary? i mean looking at the end and beginning of each season it wasnt lack of effor that was problem.. u cant introduce a new schem and a diffrent one inthe wide 9 and not exect people to catch on. i mean the nfl caught on to the wide nine and it stopped being effetive.. that effected secondard and pass rush it was predicable. i aggree wit hthe realse but y not trade them? babin first off would have gotten a 4th round pick jenkins and patterson could have been 5 round picks and we could have stocked up. overall i think that the ripping aprt is stupid castio is to blame for the problems not players.
