Which Denver Broncos players have the most at stake against the Seattle Seahawks in the second preseason game of 2019? We take a look position by position.
The Denver Broncos are just one day away from their second matchup of the 2019 preseason with the Seattle Seahawks.
Of course, these games have no meaning as it relates to the overall 2019 record, but preseason games are critical for players trying to crack a roster, whether in Denver or somewhere else.
Only 53 players get to be on the regular season active roster and only 10 more after that get to be on the practice squad.
That means as many as 37 guys on the roster will be looking for jobs come September, and some may play their only snaps on an NFL field in an NFL uniform in this preseason.
It seems bleak, but that’s what’s at stake here and that’s what makes the preseason riveting to me. These guys are fighting for jobs and their NFL livelihood.
Here are some things we already know ahead of this game against the Seahawks:
- Von Miller will play
- Joe Flacco will make his Broncos debut
- Drew Lock will get a lot of reps
- The entire starting OL minus Ron Leary will play
- Bryce Callahan (foot) will not play
Which players have the most at stake heading into this game? Let’s look position-by-position on the Broncos’ roster and find out.
