Malik Jackson is looking good, seeing some double teams.

Danny Trevathan looks to be an upgrade over Woodyard, though they are similar players.

Gerrell Robinson has looked good, but unfortunately Hanie is garbage.

Moreno earned his spot. I hope he can actually stay healthy for once in his career.

I think several of the cuts will be based on practice squad eligibility -- I think Weber, Garland, Steven Johnson, Jamie Blatnick and Gerrell Robinson will all be cut but find their way there.

I hope we cut Hanie in order to free up a spot for a 4th running back (Jeremiah Johnson over Lance Ball, please).

As much as I like him, I'm pretty sure Syd'quan is gone -- just doesn't look fast enough to play CB in the league.

Jeremy Beal is the biggest question mark for me -- I think some other team steals him if we cut him.....

I hope we are able to stash Adam Grant. That guy is beastly.

All the running backs played well.

Beal and Jackson. Carter actually made a case for himself too.

Tony Carter is the defensive version of Matt Willis and Lance Ball... just keeps hanging around year after year....

It is going to be tough but I am very optimistic. I admit that Denver's 3rd and 4th teamers aren't very good but I think the first 45 players are. I think we have depth everywhere except the Oline. Ramierez is playing great and when Kuper comes back I think Denver will be OK.

I did learn something. Virgil Green looks like a player! I cannot wait for him to get back. He is much more explosive than Dressin or Tamme.

All I know is I want our runningbacks to be:
McGahee
Hillman
Moreno
Johnson

I honestly don't understand why they love Ball so much, he blows.

Jackson has to make this roster. Has to. He has been borderline dominant at times. Could we really risk waivers on this kid?

There shouldn't even be a discussion if Malik makes the roster or not... he's a lock, period.

I wouldn't be surprised if we rolled with 2 active QBs on the roster.

The coaches love Ball, and he's pretty good on special teams, that might be the difference.

I would be surprised. I think they absolutely NEED to keep 3 QBs, this year. This is in case the duct tape wears off, over the season, and Manning has to sit. Next year, we should be more comfortable with rolling with Manning and Osweiler...

I was super hopeful that Bolden would get more PT than he did. Hopefully he gets a CB slot but I'm expecting him to hit the PS now

See I think you put Weber back on the PS and if the duct tape starts to wear off you pull him off the PS and activate him. The only thing that you risk is PFM and BO stinking it up (play on initials/words intended) and both getting injured in one game. Then that game is pretty much a loss...

I'm not sure about the CB depth around the league, but I have a feeling Bolden doesn't clear waivers to make the PS. Hope I am wrong... hope he showed enough in return skills to save himself a spot on the team... but I worry.

Last year to squeeze some PS juice out of Weber lol

"If served two seasons on a practice squad, are eligible for a third season only if the team has at least 53 players on its active/inactive list for the duration of that player's employment."

QB: Manning, Hanie, Oswieler
RB: Mcgahee, Ball, Moreno, Hillman
FG: Gronkowski
TE: Tamme, Dreesen, X (could be Cooley)
WR: Thomas, Decker, Stokley, Caldwell, Willis
OL: Clady, Kuper, Ramirez, Walton, Beadles, Hamilton, Philip Blake, X (either Clark, Grant or Harris)

CB: Bailey, Porter, Harris, Bolden, Florence
S: Adams, Moore, Carter, Bruton, Leonhard
LB: Miller, Woodyard, Mays, Irving, Mohamed, Johnson, X
DE: Wolfe, Dumervil, Ayers, Beal
DT: Warren, Vickerson, Jackson, Bannan, Unrein

ST: Prater, Colquitt, Brewer

Where I have left an X is either a player they will pick up from other teams cuts - I believe we will try to pick up a TE, or a position where I feel they may keep a current backup or look for other teams roster.

DJ Williams and Virgil Green will be exempt due to suspensions.

No Travathan? Arizona might claim him off waivers just after last night.

He could get the X linebacker spot, I am somewhat worried that he has played a lot with the 3rd teamers and I am not sure where Brooking is at.

Jackson is a lock to make the team. I don't see Bolden making it to the PS, some team would grab him up.

Moreno is now a lock IMO. I'd rather they kept Johnson over Ball at RB.

Green helped his cause, though will miss games to start the year, so hard to say about him. I think he could play some FB if need be too.

Florence is shaky. I hope he doesn't play much this year, if he makes the team.

Trevathan should make it, especially with the depth issues there at LB. Johnson might as well depending on how many LB 's they keep.

Thompson can only make the team if he returns punts, but Leonard might get that job.

Ball is a lock. he played with Manning in Indy. Manning is comfortable with him. he's not going anywhere.

It's not like he was a go to guy or anything. It was one season back in 2008 and Ball had 15 total touches on the year. He's likely equally as familiar with the other backs by now
