Denver Broncos Roster Cuts: 20 players cut to bring roster down to 53

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos have whittled their roster down from 75 to 53 by the 2pm MT deadline on Saturday, September 5th. The final roster looks fairly loaded, especially once Derek Wolfe and T.J. Ward return from their respective suspensions.

Today, John Elway and the Broncos let go LB Steven Johnson, TE Dominique Jones, TE Marcel Jensen, WR Corbin Louks, OL Ben Garland, RB Kapri Bibbs, C Dillon Day, CB Tony Carter, NT Sione Fua, LB Zaire Anderson, LB Lamin Barrow, WR Isaiah Burse, S Josh Furman, NT Chuka Ndulue, CB Taurean Nixon, LB Gerald Rivers, OL Kyle Roberts, OL Charles Sweeton, WR Jordon Taylor and DE Josh Watson.  T.J. Ward and Derek Wolfe were placed on the "reserve/suspended" list to bring the Broncos down to 53.

Next up, filling the 10-man practice squad. Do you see any of these eligible players making it onto the Broncos practice squad in 2015?

Practice Squad candidates include Joe Don Duncan, Jordan Taylor, Corbin Louks, Dillon Day, Ben Garland, Kapri Bibbs, Josh Furman, Taurean Nixon, and Zaire Anderson, among others. Elway could look to players cut from around the league to shore up the offensive line and other key positions, though.
