Broncos cut David Williams; add him to practice squad

New, comments

The 7th round pick of this year’s draft class has been waived, likely to be brought back to practice squad

NFL: Denver Broncos at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

After a day that saw Denver cutting a majority of their 2017 draft class, the Broncos also cut one of their picks from the 2018 class.

7th round pick David Williams was waived today, with Denver hoping to bring him back to the practice squad.

This move is a bit surprising as it leaves Denver with only three running backs on the current roster. Given the physicality of the position, I would think Denver would want at least one more, but if they are able to keep David Williams on the practice squad, it may be the best of both worlds.

Update - 9/2/18

On Sunday, the Broncos added rookie running back David Williams to their 10-man practice squad.
