Denver Broncos Complete 2011 Practice Squad Roster

The Denver Broncos created their eight-player practice squad on Sunday by returning players they cut on Saturday. The Denver Post reports that those players are:

WR Eron Riley
WR D'Andre Goodwin
OT Adam Grant
RB Jeremiah Johnson
FB Austin Sylvester
S Kyle McCarthy
DE Jeremy Beal
QB Adam Weber

Weber's agent announced the signing a couple of hours earlier on Twitter. Riley was impressive in the preseason finale with the Arizona Cardinals, torching their secondary for over 100 receiving yards and a 43-yard touchdown reception from Weber.

Kyle McCarthy was a bit of a surprise cut, but he remains with the Broncos. Darcel McBath, who beat him out for a spot on Saturday, was waived on Sunday to add Jonathan Wilhite.

Jeremy Beal was the Broncos' draft pick in 2007 and the only one not to make the active roster.

Denver Broncos Cut 25 Players To Reach Roster Limit

The Denver Broncos waived or released 25 players and placed three layer on injured reserve on Saturday to reach the 53-man roster limit. Among the 25 players cut were safety Kyle McCarthy, seventh-round draft pick Jeremy Beal, cornerback Perrish Cox and tight end Dan Gronkowski. Here is the complete list (via the Denver Post):

WR David Anderson
DE Jeremy Beal
CB Brandon Bing
LB Alvin Bowen
DT Ronnell Brown
G Jeff Byers
CB Perrish Cox
G Stanley Daniels
WR Britt Davis
WR D'Andre Goodwin
T Adam Grant
TE Dan Gronkowski
K Steven Hauschka
DT Jeremy Jarmon
RB Jeremiah Johnson
S Kyle McCarthy
G Greg Olsen
WR Greg Orton
DT DeMario Pressley
WR Eron Riley
LB Lee Robinson
TE Dante Rosario
RB Austin Sylvester
QB Adam Weber

 

Quarterback Adam Weber was an expected cut and he should make it to the practice squad. Tight end Dante Rosario was a former John Fox player in Carolina, but both rookie tight ends Julius Thomas and Virgil Green made the active roster.

The three players placed on injured reserve were rookie wide receiver Jamel Hamler, running back Brandon Minor and cornerback Syd'Quan Thompson.

NFL Cuts 2011: Denver Broncos Cut CB Perrish Cox

The Denver Broncos, it turned out, did cut cornerback Perrish Cox on Saturday in order to reach the 53-man roster limit. Cox had an uninspiring preseason and his legal troubles were always hanging over him. Cox is alleged to have sexually assaulted a woman and gotten her pregnant.

Cox, it was believed, had a better chance making the roster once fellow second-year cornerback Syd'Quan Thompson was lost for the season with a torn Achilles tendon. However, it appears that Cox's dismal performance on Thursday against the Arizona Cardinals made the decision for John Fox.

The Broncos will now likely cut their roster to below the 53-man limit so that they can pick up a cornerback who is cut from another team. The Broncos' final roster might not be set for a few days, but for now we'll wait to see who else is cut to reach the limit.
