Count me as one of those who was freaking out that the Broncos had cut two 2013 draft picks AND Gerell Robinson yesterday. Also count me as one of the many who was wrong about not just one but both Tavarres King and Robinson making it to the practice squad.
It’s remarkable, really. The Broncos cut two players with a ton of talent, and both made it past 31 other teams onto the practice squad. Amazing.
In case you hadn’t already figured it out, the Broncos’ practice squad was announced on Sunday after players all went through waivers, and here’s the way it looks:
OT Paul Cornick
DL Ben Garland
WR Tavarres King (R)
WR Gerell Robinson
OT Vinston Painter (R)
DE John Youbouty (R)
RB Edwin Baker (Chargers)
The only player who wasn’t formerly with the Denver Broncos on this list is running back Edwin Baker, who comes over from the San Diego Chargers. Baker is a Michigan State product who essentially is one former Charger running back replacing another (Jacob Hester) at Broncos practice.
Baker is a 5’8″ 210 pound bowling ball who is tough between the tackles, but needs to improve his third down abilities. He is not a bad stash by the Broncos at all.
The Broncos left an open spot on their practice squad, so they’re likely waiting for final cuts to go through or they have a player on their roster right now that they want to place on the practice squad when Von Miller comes back from suspension.
