Broncos Release Final Cuts.

September 5, 2009

Picture 5After their very delayed releasing of the cuts to the public, the Broncos announced today the final 6 players cut from their roster. 

The cuts included tight end Marquez Branson, linebacker Braxton Kelley, safety Vernon Fox, safety Antwain Spann and cornerback D.J. Johnson. To many peoples surprise, Le Kevin Smith was not added to the Physically Unable to Perform list, which is very good news.

So here is your final roster breakdown, according to the Denver Post:

9 offensive linemen: the starters (Clady, Hamilton, Wiegmann, Kuper, Harris) plus backups Seth Olsen, Russ Hochstein, Tyler Polumbus and Brandon Gorin.

7 wide receivers: Marshall, Eddie Royal, Brandon Stokley, Jabar Gaffney, Kenny McKinley, Chad Jackson and Brandon Lloyd.

4 running backs: Knowshon Moreno, Correll Buckhalter, LaMont Jordan and Peyton Hillis, who doubles as a fullback. Spencer Larsen also on the fullback depth chart.

3 quarterbacks: Kyle Orton, Chris Simms, Tom Brandstater

3 tight ends: Daniel Graham, Tony Scheffler, Richard Quinn

6 defensive linemen: Ronald Fields, Chris Baker, Kenny Peterson, Ryan McBean, new DE Vonnie Holliday, Marcus Thomas

9 linebackers: OLBs Elvis Dumervil, Mario Haggan, Darrell Reid, Robert Ayers, Jarvis Moss; ILBs DJ Williams, Andra Davis, Wesley Woodyard, Spencer Larsen.

4 cornerbacks: Champ Bailey, Andre Goodman, Alphonso Smith, Jack Williams

5 safeties: Brian Dawkins, Renaldo Hill, Darcel McBath, David Bruton, Josh Barrett

3 specialists: K Matt Prater, P Brett Kern, LS Lonie Paxton

I wish the best to those who were cut, and hope they are able to find jobs elsewhere in the NFL. Players put a lot of hard work in making a roster, and being cut is an unimaginable disappointment.
