Denver Broncos: 5 players who may be part of team’s first cuts
De’Mornay Pierson-El, Wide receiver
Despite already moving on from guys like Warren Jackson and Amara Darboh, the Broncos can still afford to drop at least one more receiver. Pierson-El, who had his career revived by a short stint in the XFL, does not seem like a guy who has a chance to make this squad.
That goes for several of the receivers on the roster following the big performance for Trinity Benson on Saturday in what is becoming a breakout summer for him. Theoretically, guys like Branden Mack and Devontres Dukes could be here as well.
Pierson-El is smaller than those guys and probably doesn’t have as much upside as a receiver as most guys on the roster. It does seem as though the team has toyed with the idea of using Pierson-El in the return game, but if someone like Benson or K.J. Hamler can take that over, a guy like Pierson-El basically has no chance to make the team.
Expect to see another wide receiver cut on Tuesday almost for sure. Any of the names listed here could be the unlucky one being given that news and looking to continue their playing career somewhere else.
