That looks good. I also see them keeping 5 RB's.

Payton all but assured Ball would remain with the team in the last quote I saw, and Fox guaranteed Brooking would be around as well by stating the other day that "he knows what he has in him with film"

Looks good. Personally I like the idea of having an extra safety or running back over having tony carter. That's just me though.

I would like to see Johnson as one of the RBs. Not sure if he is even eligible for PS anymore as he did play some games last season. We are sure thin at WR after Stokely and he is even long in the tooth. Not sure if Blatnick makes it as a DL or goes to PS but I have word the Broncos like him but not sure if he is liked enough for the 53 man squad. He hasn't been getting much play before the 4th quarter.

This looks pretty good but I don't see keeping 5 backs. Oh and for the love of all **** can Florence.

I don't think Brooking makes it, I am also pretty sure we are going to fish through other cuts and try to pick up possibly a WR, LB and OL.

I think Johnson makes the team. Just a hunch. Of course he would be a good practice squad guy as well.

Lance Ball was in Indiacrapolis for a full year. mostly on the PS, but he also played in a handful of games. he practiced with Manning. Manning knows him from there and they already had chemistry. he is basically "a lock" to make this team for that reason (barring any major screwups), just like Stokley and Tamme.

So Ryan Harris is getting cut? Guess I didn't pay too much attention to him so far in preseason, is he looking that bad?

The Denver Post had a little blurb about him. You remember coming out of Notre Dame He had back problems then he hurt his toe and McD did not like him. He went to the Eagles where he hurt his back again and spent all last year on IR. The speculation is that he is not as mobile and as strong as he used to be. it seems this might be his final stop in the NFL unless he can spen this year rehabbing it and get stronger.

He's not. I listened to a radio interview with him where talked about this being an all or nothing shot

I know that Virgil Green has the suspension looming, but he has shown me a much higher talent level than Julius Thomas. I just don't see why we would pick Thomas over Green. Green has at least shown in college that he has the potential to be a downfield playmaker. Thomas just hasn't shown me a single reason to believe he will pan out.

Green won't count against the roster until he comes back from suspension, so they won't have to make that decision until then. I would think they'd keep Thomas and Ingram until Green comes back. I don't know who you'd drop to free up that roster spot though.

No way we only keep 3 TE. That is a big position for this offense. Not only that but if it came down to Thomas or Green, it will be Green because Thomas has done nothing. Tamme Dreesen Green and Thomas all make it and maybe Ingram is part of the 53 man roster while Green is on suspension

Ryan Harris is one of my favorite Broncos, but right now he is the 8th OL. I had a conversation with him at the scrimmage, and I absolutely love that dude. I was hoping he would start at RT. The team would be taking a gamble by only carrying 3 OT's, but they can PS Adam Grant, and Beadles could play OT in a pinch too... I imagine a guy like Tony Hills would also be available to sign in a dire emergency.

His other only saving grace would be to cut one of the 11 DB's (Tony Carter?...whom I have as our 4th best CB), or 9 DL (Bannan?). Just can't see it. We need Leonhard to punt return, and Bruton is by far our best shooter on special teams.

You have to consider that all other 32 NFL teams will be carrying OT's on the PS that we could call up if needed (Levi Adcock would be good).

Julius Thomas was a wasted draft pick. Loved Virgil Green tho.

I missed the last game. was there that many dropped passes. I thought Ingram looked decent, better then thomas for sure. I don't even think thomas has had a reception this preseason has he?

what do y'all think is a weak spot so far this year that should be addressed next year

I agree. Also there is only one good blocking TE (Dreesen). I think they may keep Ingram since he is the best blocker then choose between Thomas and Green when Green returns. Could also replace Ingram with a waved blocking TE.
