The final cuts took place today just before the deadline:
OFFICIAL: #Broncos at league-mandated 75-man roster after waiving TE Dan Light and LB Danny Mason.
— Denver Broncos (@Broncos) September 1, 2015
Here is a table of everyone that was cut, waived, or put on IR:
TERMINATED / VESTED VETERAN
|ILB||Reggie Walker||7||Kansas State|
|TE||Jeff Heuerman||R||Ohio State|
|OLB||Danny Mason||R||Texas A&M-Commerce|
|TE/FB||Joe Don Duncan||R||Dixie State|
|WR||Nathan Palmer||2||Nothern Illinois|
|P||Spencer Lanning||3||South Carolina|
|QB||Zac Dysert||2||Miami (Ohio)|
None of these were a surprise outside of Dan Light, who was signed after waiving Solomon Patton. As much as I wanted Joe Don Duncan to make the team, we have a lot of Tight End depth and Casey has sealed the FB/TE position. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if he is later signed to the practice squad.
The next and final round of cuts must happen before 4 PM EST this Saturday, September 5th. Our game on Thursday will determine who will remain on the final roster. This includes the battle between Montee Ball and Kapri Bibbs.
