Broncos waive punter Max Duffy, make worst decision of the offseason

First, they trade the legend Tim Tebow, and now this? Who keeps letting the Denver Broncos get away with this???

On Thursday, reports began to circulate that the Broncos organization had waived former Kentucky punter/fan favorite/football wizard, Max Duffy. The Broncos would later confirm the reports, adding that both Duffy and former Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick would be cut in favor of signing two wide receivers (Amara Darboh and De’Mornay Pierson-El) to its 90-man roster.

Duffy originally signed with Denver back in late May, lasting 24 whole days before the Broncos cut ties with him.

What makes the situation even worse for the 2019 Ray Guy winner–or slimy, depending on how you want to read into this–is that Denver’s special teams coordinator Tom McMahon was reportedly fawning over Duffy’s ability just one day before the Broncos cut him, saying that Duffy “blew us out of the water.”

The NFL can be a cruel, cruel business.

The native of Australia went undrafted out of the 2021 NFL Draft but was bound to land somewhere after a record-setting career at Kentucky. Unfortunately, Denver ultimately decided to go with 31-year old veteran punter Sam Martin over the 28-year old Duffy.

Let’s hope Duffy finds his way back onto an NFL roster at some point this summer. We certainly know he’s capable of playing at the next level.

    Let’s set up a GO FUND ME to hire Nick McKellar to send a message to the staff and front office.

    He was awesome for UK…but he’d be blocked one out of every 5 kicks in the NFL.

    He’ll be signed somewhere. Duffy could adjust his punt style pretty easily IMO. I still remember that bomb from last year during I believe Auburn game at the beginning of the year
