More on the players:
Jordan Taylor: The rookie wide receiver impressed during Training Camp and made some nice catches during the preseason. Unfortunately for Taylor the Broncos were deep at receiver and there was no room for him. Taylor will provide the Broncos some depth on the team in case someone gets hurt during the season.
Dillon Day: Day received the highest signing bonus of any of the Broncos undrafted free agents this year, so the Bro cos staff felt highly enough about him. Look for him to learn and grow on the practice squad this year and compete for a backup job in 2016.
Zaire Anderson: Anderson was praised by Head Coach Gary Kubiak multiple times this summer and played well during the preseason. Unfortunately for Anderson there wasn't enough room for him on the roster. Anderson will be called on if the Broncos suffer any injuries to the middle linebacker spots.
Chuka Ndulue: He was an undrafted free agent for the Broncos in 2015, and will provide depth for the Broncos at nose tackle. He's a versatile lineman who can play three spots along the line. The 6'3" 298lb lineman had a half sack during the preseason.
Only one former Bronco was claimed from waivers
That player, linebacker Steven Johnson, was picked up by the Tennessee Titans where perhaps another former-Bronco, Wesley Woodyard, put in a good word for him.
Taurean Nixon: Nixon was drafted by the Broncos in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He was teammates with 5th round pick Lorenzo Doss at Tulane. He's a speedy cornerback who will look improve his game and contribute for the Broncos in the future.
Danny Mason: Mason is a speedy outside linebacker who was among the Broncos first series of cuts earlier this week. He has a very raw skill set, but his speed and athleticism has earned him another look from the Broncos.
George Uko: George Uko is a 6'3", 284lb defensive lineman who previously played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He joined the Bucs in 2014 as an undrafted free agent and spent the season on their practice squad. Uko will now provide depth for Broncos on their practice squad.
Kapri Bibbs: With running back Montee Ball being waived yesterday the Broncos needed to add another running back to their roster, and that guy is Bibbs. He's a good fit in Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking offense and will be called on if one of the Broncos running back suffers an injury.
Kyle Roberts: The Broncos signed Roberts after he went undrafted during this year's NFL Draft. He will add depth to the tackle position that includes Ty Sambrailo, Michael Schofield, and Ryan Harris. The Broncos will look to groom Roberts this season and hope he can compete for a roster spot in 2016.
Arthur Lynch: He was a fifth-round pick for the Miami Dolphins last season but was waived by the team this past August. He spent time with the New York Jets but was waived by them earlier this week. He'll provide depth for the Broncos at the tight end position.
