Broncos will release suspended McBean

According to Mike Klis, the Broncos will release defensive tackle Ryan McBean today. Denver had given McBean an original-round tender (fourth-round) worth $1.26M last month, but the fifth-year player is facing a six-game suspension, which he is fighting, for having allegedly violated the league's PED policy.

PFF had graded McBean at minus-21.6 overall last season (-3.5 run, -14.9 pass rush, +1.0 pass coverage, -4.2 penalty). The most notable moment of his three seasons with the Broncos came during the 2010 season opener, when McBean's two facemask penalties helped the Jaguars along to their game-winning touchdown.

Denver brought back veteran tackle Justin Bannan last week, and speculation continues again this year that the team will draft a DT or two.
