Broncos are still under the NFL's 90-man roster limit, team says

The Broncos have not yet exceeded the 90-man roster limit, the team explained on Monday.

After coming away from the NFL Draft with six new rookies and agreeing to terms with fifteen college free agents, the Denver Broncos appeared to have 92 players on their roster, two more than the NFL's offseason limit. Or so we thought.

As it turns out, the Broncos have only signed eleven of their college free agents, team PR man Erich Schubert explained over Twitter on Monday evening. After cutting defensive back Charles Mitchell earlier today, the Broncos are still three players under the 90-man limit.

Until the Broncos sign their remaining UDFAs, no more additional cuts will need to be made.

It could be a few days until all of the UDFAs sign, but eventually, they will all sign. When that happens, Denver will need to part ways with another player.
