The Broncos have (finally) released their official list of cuts to get the roster down to 53 players.
But if the team’s actions throughout the preseason was any indication, this is by no means a final roster. Expect plenty of minor (and maybe a couple of bigger) moves as the season goes on.

Here are the cuts from Saturday: outside linebacker Tim Crowder, running back Darius Walker, wide receiver Matthew Willis, defensive end Nic Clemons, offensive lineman Mitch Erickson, cornerback Tony Carter, defensive end Everette Pedescleaux, tight end Marquez Branson, linebacker Braxton Kelley, safety Vernon Fox safety Antwain Spann and cornerback D.J. Johnson,

Add those to the 11 moves made Friday. Center Kory Lichtensteiger, defensive tackle Carlton Powell, defensive end Matthias Askew, quarterback Ingle Martin, cornerback Rashod Moulton, offensive lineman Clint Oldenburg (a Colorado State graduate), linebacker Lee Robinson, wide receiver Nate Swift, running back Marcus Thomas, cornerback Joshua Bell were all released. Offensive lineman Matt McChesney was placed on injured reserve while the team and McChesney’s representatives negotiate an injury settlement.

The Broncos had to cut 24 players from the active roster over the past two days to make room for new DE Vonnie Holliday and suspended receiver Brandon Marshall.
Breakdown:
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

Possibly McBean or Thomas if Vonnie comes in and impresses and dethrones McBean in the rotation, hell or even Vonnie if he stinks it up. If not a DL than Lloyd or Jackson if Marshall is doing well for us and Jabar Gaffney is healthy.

Depends on how they play, but probably Vonnie.

Surprised Barrett beat out Fox, but happy for it.

Sad about Carlton Powell ... betcha he finds a home somewhere in the league.

Why does that surprise you? Fox was another journeyman special teamers Shanny brought a long Barrett has great man to man cover skills against the TE and he plays great on special teams.

To bad for Marquez Branson. I think he can play somewhere, or maybe the PS him. Supposedly he's the reason they cut Putz.

McDooDooFace is tearing this team apart.

Clearly, this will divide the locker room even more.

Agree on both. I'm glad they didn't give up on Barrett. Remember the job he did on Gonzo last year? With that kind of size/speed ratio you have to hope he catches on and blooms late. Fox is just another guy IMO but Barrett has a higher ceiling. Same with Powell...he's got NFL talent. I hope he winds up on our PS.

McBean played very well in the preseason. He's not going anywhere.

Marcus Thomas got a real break. His injury might have saved him a job. He would have had to outplay a fairly tough field.

I hope this is a sign that the staff is bullish on him.

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

7 defensive linemen: Ronald Fields, Chris Baker, Kenny Peterson, Ryan McBean, new DE Vonnie Holliday, Marcus Thomas, Le Kevin Smith

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

No real surprises.

Jarvis Moss makes it....I am fine with that.

Lamont Jordan makes it....don't see how he will really help the team.

I will be interested to see how Crowder does with a fresh start.

Isn't he active tomorrow, the 6th? If so, then LeKevin Smith prolly goes to PUP. I can't imagine they would cut a guy after just one day. That would be a cruel joke.

I'm not convinced the Jordan was a better choice over Darius Walker. Lamont hasn't done jack **** all TC and preseason.
