The Denver Broncos continued their salary purge today by releasing 11-year veteran cornerback Dre' Bly, who had spent two years starting opposite star Champ Bailey.

Bly was acquired from the Detroit Lions on March 2, 2007, to replace Darrent Williams, the rising 24-year-old cornerback who was killed in a drive-by shooting two months earlier.

In his two years in Denver, Bly recorded 134 tackles, a sack and seven interceptions, including 77 stops and two pickoffs last season.

He's the fourth defensive starter dumped this week by the new regime of general manager Brian Xanders and coach Josh McDaniels, who replaced the fired Mike Shanahan.

Bly was due to count $6.8 million against next season's $123 million salary cap.

Monday, the Broncos released defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson, linebacker Jamie Winborn, safety Marquand Manuel, special teamer Niko Koutouvides, defensive end John Engelberger and tight end Nate Jackson.

    Finally, they release Dre' Bly. No matter what the stats are, Bly cannot defend his reciever. I think this is McDaniel's best decision this offseason.
