The most heartbreaking time of training camp is now upon us. The fringes of the roster are being paired down and the dreams of countless players are coming to a bitter end. Such is life in the NFL.
The Denver Broncos waived 10 players and released one in advance of the 2 PM deadline to cut the roster down to 75. The cuts are as follows:
- Safety Brandian Ross (released)
- Tight end Manasseh Garner
- Safety Antonio Glover
- Offensive lineman Mathu Gibson
- Defensive lineman Calvin Heurtelou
- Offensive tackle Cameron Jefferson
- Nose tackle David Moala
- Wide receiver Durron Neal
- Wide receiver DeVier Posey
- Inside linebacker Darnell Sankey
- Inside linebacker Frank Shannon
http://www.scout.com/nfl/broncos/story/1681565-5-reasons-you-should-go-p...None of the moves are particularly shocking at this point. Ross, a five-year veteran, was the only player to be released rather than waived by virtue of his NFL experience. Garner, Gibson, and Shannon each did not receive a snap in the Broncos Preseason Week 3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams. Posey and Neal have each caught passes from rookie Paxton Lynch this preseason.
Sankey and Gibson both joined the Broncos later into training camp, and Garner is now being released for the second time in this training camp.
More cuts will be coming very soon as the Broncos still need to cut their roster down from 79 to 75. Stayed tuned to keep an eye on who is let go and who sticks around, as well as the fate of quarterback Mark Sanchez in light of the recent news of second-year quarterback Trevor Siemian being named starter.
