Here is the Broncos initial 53-man roster

The Denver Broncos have gotten down to 53 ahead of the 2:00 pm MT Saturday deadline. Here is who made the cut so far.

The Denver Broncos have made the 27 roster moves necessary to get them to the 53-man limit required by Saturday’s 2:00 pm deadline. There were a couple of surprise cuts, but they are also not likely done making moves either.

The biggest surprise of the day was likely the team cutting both De’Vante Bausby and Alijah Holder, choosing to go with rookie Michael Ojemudia, Duke Dawson, and Devontae Harris instead. The other surprise news was the waived/injured move of tight end Troy Fumagalli, which meant the team went with Jake Butt on their initial 53-man roster.

This table represents your initial 53-man Broncos roster. The waiver period will end on Sunday afternoon, which means the final 53-man roster for Week 1 won’t be officially known until Monday or so. We’ll get another update then.

Here is where their roster stands as of right now. We’ll revisit this list again on Monday.
