Palm Desert -

Former Palm Desert football star Lars Hanson was released by the Denver Broncos Friday morning following the team's final preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night.

Hanson told Sports Director Blake Arthur Friday that "it's on to the next one. It's a journey."

Hanson made the cut down to 75 players on the Broncos during preseason but fell short of making the team's final 53 man roster.

The 6 foot 8 inch, 300 pound offensive lineman hopes to be claimed by another team which could happen within the next few days.
