The 2012 Denver Broncos final cuts will be completed today by the 7:00 pm MDT deadline. However, that doesn't mean they must wait that long. In fact, teams have already begun making their personnel decisions as exhibited by this Roster Tracker from PFT. Realizing this is another big day for the Broncos, and one that will effect the future of around 640 young men, I thought it would be worth creating an Open Thread for discussion. After the jump, I will fill you in on some of the past Final Rosters in Bronco history. You all have an idea of what the strengths and weaknesses, but here's what direction the Guru is looking:
