The 2023-24 season is officially over for the Denver Broncos, following an 8-9 record, and no qualification for the NFL playoffs. One day after their season finale loss at Las Vegas, the Broncos announced that they had signed 12 players to future/reserve contracts.

These twelve players are players who were on the practice squad, and/or were not on an active roster after the season. Once Super Bowl LVIII is over, these 12 players will instantly be a part of Denver's 90-man roster ahead of the 2024-25 season, to be specific once the new league year starts (March 13).
