  1. Must need to make way for another ex-Bronco!
    Where is the rest of the story? Why has he been let go?

  2. Ask no questions, get told no lies Out-Of-Puff.
    I would say he’s been released because of the lack of opportunities available for him. He’s been in the Dragons system for a few years now and hasn’t threatened to break into first grade in that time.
    A new start somewhere else might be what he needs.
