The Broncos must trim their roster to 75 players by 2 p.m. MT Tuesday. They announced 11 transactions on Monday morning, as seen below:

TERMINATED / VESTED VETERAN
POSITION PLAYER EXP. COLLEGE
ILB Reggie Walker 7 Kansas State
INJURED RESERVE
POSITION PLAYER EXP. COLLEGE
TE Jeff Heuerman R Ohio State
WAIVED
POSITION PLAYER EXP. COLLEGE
CB Tevrin Brandon R Monmouth
G Andre Davis R Buffalo
TE/FB Joe Don Duncan R Dixie State
QB Zac Dysert 2 Miami (Ohio)
P Spencer Lanning 3 South Carolina
S Ross Madison 1 Toledo
TE Jake Murphy 1 Utah
RB Jeremy Stewart 4 Stanford
OLB Chase Vaughn 1 CSU-Pueblo

The most notable cut is quarterback Zac Dysert, who has been the team's No. 3 QB. This likely means rookie Trevor Siemian is safe.

Cutting punter Spencer Lanning also shows that the team is confident in Britton Colquitt. Fullback Joe Don Duncan is an early candidate for the practice squad.

After trading tackle Chris Clark to the Texans, Denver's roster is at 78 players.

Stay tuned as more cuts and transactions will be coming soon.
