Things will be a lot different for the Denver Broncos and the NFL as a whole this week. After three weeks of the NFL preseason, teams must get down to the final 53-man roster and 16-man practice squad by Tuesday at 2:00 PM Mile High time.

Some of the other changes include waiver modifications. The waiver priority will be based on the 2021 draft order and players with less than 4 accrued seasons are subject to the waiver wire. Also, any player placed on injured reserve prior to the 2:00 PM deadline will be ruled out for the entire season.
