An impressive preseason from Brock Osweiler, and a ton of talent across and deep down the depth chart, has led to changes in the way John Fox forms a roster. For the first team in his tenure as Denver head coach, the Broncos will exit training camp with only two quarterbacks on the active roster.

Zac Dysert, an undrafted second-year quarterback out of Miami, Ohio, will find himself on Denver's practice squad if he clears waivers. He had a strong preseason game in Week 2, but didn't see a snap in Weeks 1 or 3, and barely any time in the finale. Overall his snap count was very limited; he finished the preseason completing 12 of 18 passes (66.7%) for 106 yards, one TD, and no interceptions (100.7 rating).
This is the second surprise in Denver Broncos roster cuts today; earlier, the team released nine-year veteran defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson.
Hopefully Dysert sneaks through waivers and lands on Denver's practice squad, which forms Sunday.
