Broncos cut 11, including Winston Justice

The Broncos cut 11 players on Sunday night, including tackle Winston Justice and running backs Brennan Clay and Jerodis Williams.

Along with the two backs, wideouts Greg Wilson and Greg Hardin, LB Jerrell Harris, DT Will Pericak, S Charles Mitchell, and QB Bryn Renner were waived.

LB Jamar Chaney and DE Chase Vaughn were let go with injuries.

According to Mike Klis, the release of Justice suggests that Paul Cornick could stick around as a backup tackle.

But there's also Vinston Painter, whom Denver activated late last year to prevent the Niners from poaching him off their practice squad.

Given his age and experience, Justice would have carried a far bigger cap number (2.5 times) than will Cornick or Painter.

None of the cuts are in any way surprising.

The departure of Clay and Williams means Kapri Bibbs is essentially trying to prove he's worth the Broncos keeping five running backs. That seems unlikely.

Denver must remove two more players from its active roster by 4pm ET on Tuesday.

Klis expects one of those moves to be a stashing of Jordan Norwood on IR.
