The Denver Broncos have reportedly made their first decision with roster cuts. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Broncos will be releasing punter Sam Martin.
The 32-year-old basically made the decision a little easier when he reportedly told the Broncos he would not accept any form of a pay cut.
“Sam Martin is being released today by Denver after indicating he would refuse any pay reduction. He was a top 5 punter statistically in 2021 and set Broncos all-time record for net punting last season. Will have interest,” Ian Rapoport reports.
Denver will save nearly $2 million in cap space in the move.
That means the team will go with Corliss Waitman as their primary punter in 2022.
One team likely to call Sam Martin immediately would be the Buffalo Bills who recently released their punter, Matt Araiza, due to some disturbing sexual assault allegations.
