The next wave of Denver Broncos roster cuts has been released. Unlike Friday, some bigger names were on Saturday morning’s list.
The Offensive line moves clear the way for Sam Jones to make the 53-man roster, the OL backups appear to be Elijah Wilkinson, Max Garcia and Jones.
Clinton McDonald is a tough one, the former Tampa Bay standout had high hopes but a shoulder injury flareup doomed him in Denver.
Tim Patrick looks to be secure with the release of Cracraft and McKenzie. McKenzie had to see the writing on the wall when Adam Jones showed he could still perform in the return game.
Zaire Anderson, a veteran, was ousted by the arrival of Alexander Johnson and Josey Jewell who also appear to be safe bets to make the final roster.

The biggest surprise of today’s early announcements is De’Angelo Henderson. He electrified the preseason a year ago and showed the same wiggle and breakaway ability in spurts this season. We knew the competition at running back was tight. Dave Williams was expected to be the odd-man-out but survived, as did Devontae Booker, who may still be available as a trade option.
The decimation of the 2017 draft class makes way for an outstanding 2018 class to make their mark. While it hurts to say goodbye to favorites like Henderson, there’s a lot of excitement for the 2018 Denver Broncos. While we say goodbye to some friends, we say hello to Royce Freeman, Phillip Lindsay, Bradley Chubb, Courtland Sutton and more. New veterans that may excite like Su’a Cravens and Adam Jones will be interesting and of course, the arrival of Case Keenum lends a stability that’s been absent since 2014.
Stay tuned, it’s going to be an interesting 24-hours.
