Broncos Roster Cuts Tracker: Live Blog and Open Thread

Good Morning Broncos Fans! Today is the day that we figure out just exactly what our 53 man roster will look like (at least to begin the season). Today will put an end to all offseason activities and mark the start of preparations for the Broncos as they look forward to kicking off the season against Baltimore on Thursday. The Broncos will practice today, and by 4 pm MDT, we will know exactly who was cut and who survived.

The Broncos waived six players including WR Gerell Robinson and RB Lance Ball. Damien Holmes, Lamaar Thomas, Aaron Hester and Ben Garland were the other casualties on Friday.

The biggest and perhaps most welcomed surprise was news that the Broncos made room on the final 53 for RB CJ Anderson. According to reports, Anderson is just a couple of weeks from being able to play again.

Some rather cryptic tweets from Jacob Hester and a teammate have people speculating that the Broncos are also retaining his services. If true, that brings the number in the offensive backfield to 5.

Other tweets indicate that Omar Bolden has also made the final 53.
