The Denver Broncos will need to get down to their 53-man roster this weekend and there is going to be some surprises. The biggest surprise could be the cutting of T.J. Ward. Given the trade rumors this week, that really only happens when a team is thinking about cutting the player and is hoping to get something for him instead of getting nothing from cutting him from the roster.
Report: Broncos getting calls about trading TJ Ward. Translation: Broncos hope to get calls and trade him, otherwise he'll be cut— Greg Gabriel (@greggabe) August 29, 2017
The Cleveland Browns just did the same thing with Joe Haden, but then just straight cut him early after receiving little to no trade interest for him.
Given this information, I mapped out my final 53-man roster projection accordingly. Line up the firing squad, I will face it with courage and dignity.
