Broncos' undrafted free agent streak comes to an end after eleven years

Denver's streak dated back to 2003.

(Jon Heath-Mile High Report)

The streak has ended.

The Broncos announced their 53-man roster Saturday afternoon and for the first time since 2003, no undrafted free agents made the cut. The team's 11-year streak of having an UDFA on their Week 1 roster was tied for the third-longest active streak in the league.

Denver has had great success finding diamonds in the rough in recent years — their are 14 former UDFAs currently on the roster. And while the active streak has ended, the team may add a few UDFAs to their practice squad this weekend.

Denver can sign 10 players to their practice squad beginning at 10 a.m. tomorrow.

Undrafted rookies that are candidates to land on the team's practice squad include linebacker Zaire Anderson, center Dillon Day, defensive lineman Chuka Ndulue, offensive tackle Kyle Roberts, offensive tackle Charles Sweeton, receiver Jordan Taylor, defensive lineman Josh Watson, cornerback Tevrin Brandon, guard Andre Davis, and fullback Joe Don Duncan.

Duncan was among the team's early cuts and visited the Patriots on Friday.

Non-UDFA candidates to land on the team's practice squad include receiver Corbin Louks, offensive lineman Ben Garland, and running back Kapri Bibbs. Denver can also add players waived by other teams.

Practice squad buzz aside, Denver's UDFA streak has died. It had a good run.
