What an exhilarating day for football and the Denver Broncos. It’s a very sad day for some players whose careers have come to a close, but a fresh start for others.

The Broncos didn’t announce any moves until right up before the deadline, so the fan base was sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to see if certain players like Ronnie Hillman or Mark Sanchez would be cut or traded, and what 53 players would occupy the roster of the defending Super Bowl champions.

John Elway and Gary Kubiak had to make some really difficult decisions, but that’s truly a luxury for this brain trust. There are plenty of teams scouring the waiver wire and the scrap heap, looking for any way possible to upgrade their roster.

The Broncos, on the other hand, are looking to supplement what they already have and are cutting players that would easily make it in other NFL cities.

Let’s take a look at the Broncos’ roster by position, and see where this team has to go from here…
