Notebook: Broncos release guard

| Friday, Feb. 25, 2005

The Denver Broncos released guard Dan Neil on Thursday, parting ways with one of the cornerstones of their solid offensive lines for the past eight seasons. A third-round pick of the Broncos in 1997, Neil started 104 games over eight years with Denver. He was in the starting lineup last season until knee and stomach injuries slowed him, forcing him to miss Denver's final three regular-season games and the playoffs. The Broncos are about $2 million under next year's salary cap, and releasing Neil should save them about $1.75 million.

  • Former Titans cornerback Samari Rolle waived his right to an initial court hearing for allegedly hitting his wife, court officials said yesterday. His wife, Danisha Rolle , was treated for a cut over her left eye the night of Feb. 14, and hospital officials called authorities, police said. Samari Rolle was arrested the next day on a misdemeanor assault charge. He could face from probation to a year in prison if convicted. The next court date is April 6. Rolle was released by the Titans on Tuesday in a salary-cap move. His attorney, Peter Strianse, did not return a phone call seeking comment.

  • The Eagles released linebacker Nate Wayne yesterday. Wayne started seven games last season and every game in his first season in Philadelphia in 2003. He had 173 tackles, four sacks and one interception in 25 games with the Eagles.
