NFL Cuts 2011: Denver Broncos Might Be Interested In Defensive Tackles

In a surprising move, the Denver Broncos cut defensive lineman Jeremy Jarmon on Saturday afternoon to reach the 53-man roster limits. Jarmon came to the Broncos in an early trade with the Washington Redskins for wide receiver Jabar Gaffney. Jarmon started out as a defensive end, but had to move inside and become a tackle once injuries hit the position.

During cut day's press conference, general manager Brian Xanders called Jarmon's departure a "tough cut" and that moving between the positions likely hurt his development.

The Broncos still need another defensive tackle or two on the roster and there are sure to be a few that will interest the team. Tommie Harris was cut by the Indianapolis Colts and is a former first-round pick. Knee injuries have taken away his speed skills at the line. The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly released Derek Landri, a player the Broncos were interested in at the start of free agency.
