    Broncos' 53-Man Roster Finalized

    Posted 51 minutes ago

    The Broncos announced 22 transactions Saturday as the team has reached the NFL-mandated 53-player roster limit.

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The roster is set -- for now.

    After 22 transactions, the Broncos have reached the league-mandated, 53-player limit with just five days remaining until their season kicks off against Baltimore.

    Saturday, the team announced that running back Lance Ball, center/guard C.J. Davis, running back Jeremiah Johnson, center/guard Ryan Lilja and tight end Jake O'Connell were released as vested veterans.

    Defensive end Jeremy Beal, center/guard Philip Blake, tackle Paul Cornick, defensive tackles Romney Fuga and Ben Garland, cornerback Aaron Hester, linebacker Damien Holmes, wide receiver Tavarres King, tackle Vinston Painter, safety Ross Rasner, wide receivers Gerell Robinson and Lamaar Thomas and defensive end John Youboty were all waived.

    In addition, linebackers Stewart Bradley and Lerentee McCray and defensive end Quanterus Smith were placed on injured reserve.

    Linebacker Von Miller was designated as reserve/suspended and will not count against the active roster during the first six weeks of the season.

    Three 2013 NFL Draft picks were included in the weekend's transactions -- King (fifth round) and Painter (sixth round) were waived, while Smith (fifth round) will miss the season with an injury.

    On Sunday, the Broncos can establish a practice squad of up to eight players beginning at 10 a.m. MDT.

    Below is a quick position-by-position breakdown of the Broncos' roster and another look at the 22 transactions that helped the Broncos reach their final, 53-man roster.

    Quarterbacks: Three
    Running Backs: Five
    Wide Receivers: Five
    Tight Ends: Four
    Offensive Linemen: Nine (three tackles, four guards, two centers)
    Defensive Linemen: Seven (three ends, four tackles)
    Linebackers: Six
    Defensive Backs: 11 (six cornerbacks, five safeties)
    Specialists: Three

    So they put Quanterrus Smith and Stewart Bradley on IR and Jammer made the roster. Tavarres King and Robinson waived. Dysert made the roster.

        Nope IR for the year
        A healthy Kenneth Dixon is a top 5 NFL RB.

          3 drafted guys already gone, kind of a dissapointing draft so far...

            What happened to Quanterus Smith? I thought he played all Preseason and now he's suddenly on IR?

              Grats to Dysert! I actually feel more comfortable having 2 developing behind Manning.

              What happens when Von gets back though? Someone's got to go then right?
              The beatings will continue until morale improves....

                  So, Holiday is listed as one of the 5 WRs?

                    It's not rare to waive late round picks and put them on the practice squad. Some fans just got used to Elway keeping nearly all draft picks recently. I don't agree with all the moves, but we're not there in the building watching these players closely every day. This roster may even go through more changes before week 1 depending on who's available out there. Most of all, I am concerned about the pass rush. I did not see much of it during preseason and the current depth chart does not look impressive in terms of edge rushers.

                      A little surprised to see Vallos kept over Lilja.

                        Pretty much a redshirt to get his knee healthy.

                          That's good. Wouldn't want to screw up his potential. I was wondering why he was on the IR, I saw him at the game a couple nights ago and nothing happened.

                            they must thought pretty highly of Dysert to keep 3 QBs on the roster. Then again he showed to much promise to be kept hidden on the practice squad.
