Denver Broncos roster cuts following 2021 training camp

NFL teams are cutting down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Denver Broncos sort out their roster decisions.

Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio calls out in the first quarter during a preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams at Empower Field at Mile High Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos had a heated quarterback battle throughout the preseason with Teddy Bridgewater ultimately beating out Drew Lock for the starting job. The running back position is now in the spotlight with Melvin Gordon dealing with a groin injury. Rookie Javonte Williams figures to be in the mix early and often with Gordon heading towards free agency after the season. The Broncos also hope their secondary will hold up better this season in a division with the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers.
