Broncos cut cornerback Bless Austin

·1 min read

The Denver Broncos will cut cornerback Bless Austin, according to a report from KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis.

Austin, 26, signed with Denver in April after previously spending time with the Seattle Seahawks and New York Jets.

The Broncos’ top cornerbacks on the roster are Pat Surtain, Ronald Darby, K’Waun Williams, Michael Ojemudia and Damarri Mathis. Beyond them, Austin seemed to be competing with Essang Bassey and Faion Hicks for the final CB spot on the roster (assuming the team carries six CBs).

It’s possible that the Broncos might bring Austin back, either on the active roster or on the practice squad. Denver has a few players (including Ojemudia) who might be candidates for injured reserve after the initial 53-man roster is set, which would open up a few more spots.

At the time of this writing, the Broncos have made two cuts so far: Austin and punter Sam Martin. Twenty-five more moves to go (cuts tracker).
