Broncos Roster Cuts Including P Britton Colquitt & S Brandian Ross

The Denver Broncos have begun the process of trimming their roster down to 75 players. Here’s the full list of roster cuts up to this point:

  1. P Britton Colquitt
  2. WR Bralon Addison
  3. OT Kyle Roberts
  4. S Brandian Ross
  5. TE Manasseh Garner
  6. S Antonio Glover
  7. DL Calvin Heurtelou
  8. OT Cameron Jefferson
  9. NT David Moala
  10. WR Durron Neal
  11. WR DeVier Posey
  12. ILB Darnell Sankey
  13. ILB Frank Shannon
  14. OL Mathu Gibson

Other roster moves include:

  • LB Lamin Barrow (Waived/Injured)
  • TE Garrett Graham (Injured Reserve)

Graham, 29, was in the final year of his three-year, $11.25 million contract that included $4.5 million guaranteed when he was released in a move that freed up $3.125 million in available cap space for the Texans back in March.

The Broncos later signed him to a one-year contract.

In 2015, Graham appeared in eight games for the Texans and recorded four receptions for 30 yards receiving and a touchdown.

Colquitt, 31, is in the final year of his four-year, $13.023 million contract that included a roster bonus of $3 million. He stands to make a base salary of $3.25 million for the 2016 season.

In 2015, Colquitt appeared in all 16 games for the Broncos and totaled 3,416 yards punting on 84 attempts (40.6 per) and four touchbacks.

Ross, 26, originally signed on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Youngstown State back in 2011. Since then, Ross has played for the Raiders and Dolphins before later returning to Oakland after he was claimed off of waivers from Miami.

The Raiders wound up re-signing to a restricted deal worth $1.542 million back in April of last year, but he was later released from their injured reserve list. The Chargers wound up signing him to a contract towards the end of the year.

The Broncos signed him to a contract in April.

In 2014, Ross appeared in 14 games for the Raiders and recorded 55 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and six pass defenses. Last year, Ross was active for just one game.

——

Gibson, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Wingate back in May. He was invited to participate in the Jets’ rookie mini-camp on a tryout basis, but wasn’t signed to a contract.

Gibson eventually caught on with the Broncos a few weeks ago, but the fact that he was signed so late in the process made it difficult to crack the team’s 53-man roster.

During his college career, Gibson was a first-team All-South Atlantic Conference during his rookie season and a four-year starter overall.
