Elway’s Broncos Release Two Players Known for Kneeling During Anthem: “More Trouble Than They’re Worth”

When John Elway assumed control of the Denver Broncos, he insisted on complete authority over football operations.

Regarding the national anthem kneeling controversy, Elway made it clear such actions were intolerable. Despite this, two players knelt during away games, challenging his stance. Elway dismissed them but faced reinstatement by the Player’s Association.

Wide receiver DeJ’ose Barron asserted Elway had no jurisdiction outside Denver. However, Elway ultimately released Barron and teammate Lavart Tubolls, inviting them to seek other teams. Legal action for season salaries is expected.
