Denver Broncos Release Renaldo Hill

The Denver Broncos trimmed more excess weight off of their salary cap number on Saturday by releasing safety Renaldo Hill. The Broncos were Hill's fourth team since he entered the league in 2001. Joining the Broncos in 2009, Hill started 31 games for the Broncos, picked off four passes and had 10 passes defended. 

Hill had been due $2.4 million, but the additions of safeties Rahim Moore and Quinton Carter made him extraneous. After not practicing during the first couple of days, Hill will now look to land in a new place.

As for the secondary, Brian Dawkins won't practice until his restructured contract is finished. That provides Carter and Moore the opportunity to play with the first-team defense. Sooner or later, both of them could find themselves as part of the starting secondary.
