  • Denver Broncos Roster Cuts: 20 players cut to bring roster down to 53

    The Denver Broncos have whittled their roster down from 75 to 53 by the 2pm MT deadline on Saturday, September 5th. The final roster looks fairly loaded, especially once Derek Wolfe and T.J. Ward return from their respective suspensions.

    Today, John Elway and the Broncos let go LB Steven Johnson, TE Dominique Jones, TE Marcel Jensen, WR Corbin Louks, OL Ben Garland, RB Kapri Bibbs, C Dillon Day, CB Tony Carter, NT Sione Fua, LB Zaire Anderson, LB Lamin Barrow, WR Isaiah Burse, S Josh Furman, NT Chuka Ndulue, CB Taurean Nixon, LB Gerald Rivers, OL Kyle Roberts, OL Charles Sweeton, WR Jordon Taylor and DE Josh Watson. T.J. Ward and Derek Wolfe were placed on the "reserve/suspended" list to bring the Broncos down to 53.

    Next up, filling the 10-man practice squad. Do you see any of these eligible players making it onto the Broncos practice squad in 2015?

    Practice Squad candidates include Joe Don Duncan, Jordan Taylor, Corbin Louks, Dillon Day, Ben Garland, Kapri Bibbs, Josh Furman, Taurean Nixon, and Zaire Anderson, among others. Elway could look to players cut from around the league to shore up the offensive line and other key positions, though.

    Is it just me or does it seem awfully quiet in these forums lately? Broncos cut down day and no one had posted this already? Seems odd for this site.

      Gerald Rivers making the team surprises me. Keeping 4 inside linebackers and 6 outside linebackers surprises me.
      Keeping only 2 TE and 1 fullback seems light.
      Gradkowski and Shelley both making it surprises me.
      Ball making it seems like a waste of a roster spot. I wish we had kept Bibbs.

        Rivers was released. Bush is on the team at least for game one until Ward returns.

          Cause everyone is talking about the cuts in the main forum. These two threads may be joined since they are discussing the same thing.

              He's still on the team because people can't waiver wire him if we don't cut him. He's only on the roster until someone trades for him. I expect to see a LB or two moved as well based off the same thing.

                Here is the Broncos official Depth Chart.

                Offense

                POS - FIRST - SECOND - THIRD - OTHER
                WR - Demaryius Thomas - Andre Caldwell - Bennie Fowler
                LT - Ty Sambrailo - Michael Schofield
                LG - Evan Mathis - Max Garcia
                C - Matt Paradis - Gino Gradkowski
                RG - Louis Vasquez - Shelley Smith
                RT - Ryan Harris - Michael Schofield
                TE - Owen Daniels - Virgil Green
                WR - Emmanuel Sanders - Cody Latimer - Jordan Norwood
                RB - C.J. Anderson - Ronnie Hillman - Juwan Thompson - Montee Ball
                QB - Peyton Manning - Brock Osweiler - Trevor Siemian
                FB - James Casey - Virgil Green

                *(My comments & Not Official) I hope they can find better backups to replace Gradkowski & Smith on the o-line. You can almost say the same thing about Schofield. Hopefully we can find some better depth players.

                Defense

                POS FIRST SECOND THIRD OTHER
                DE - Antonio Smith - Vance Walker
                NT - Sylvester Williams - Darius Kilgo
                DE - Malik Jackson - Kenny Anunike
                SLB - Von Miller - Shaquil Barrett - Lerentee McCray
                WLB- DeMarcus Ware - Shane Ray
                ILB - Brandon Marshall - Todd Davis
                ILB - Danny Trevathan - Corey Nelson
                LCB - Aqib Talib - Kayvon Webster - Lorenzo Doss
                RCB - Chris Harris Jr. - Bradley Roby - Curtis Marsh
                SS - David Bruton Jr. - Josh Bush
                FS - Darian Stewart - Omar Bolden

                *(My comments & Not Official) My guess is when Ward & Wolf come back it is going to push Marsh & Bush off the team.

                Special Teams

                POS FIRST SECOND THIRD OTHER

                PR Omar Bolden - Jordan Norwood
                KR Omar Bolden - Andre Caldwell - Jordan Norwood

                *(My comments & Not Official) They keep talking about using Sanders for return duty and I hope they do not have to use him there because I would hate to see him get hurt.

                  P.S. ?
                  Bibbs, maybe Garland, Furman, Dillon Day, Kyle Roberts, Ziare Anderson, Nixon, Jordan Taylor, Gerald Rivers, Joe Don Duncan.
                  Of course that's considering they get through waivers ... Bibbs might not make it. My guess is 1-2 of these guys won't be on the PS and the Broncos find other players. TE Dan Light might still be a candidate?

                    Yeah, this place doesn't have the same energy it used to have. The only time it gets any life is the constant Manning debate, nobody wants to talk about any other players.

                      It's because A. it's a holiday weekend B. it's pre-season. Wait till next week and this place will be hopping again.

                        Thinking the only problems will be OL, TE and the returners. No depth at OL, TE, and no returners.

                          There's already a couple other threads talking about it...

                            He's still on the roster because our FO doesn't make knee jerk roster decisions. It takes time for some football players to hit their stride.
                            A healthy Kenneth Dixon is a top 5 NFL RB.

                              He's still on the team because he has talent and could still develop. doubt we see anyone moved now. The ILB Elway was trying to move were probably Barrow and Johnson.
