Denver Broncos general manager George Paton was busy Tuesday, making nine roster moves. Here’s a quick recap of the team’s transactions.
Promoted OL Austin Schlottmann to 53-man roster

Schlottmann has been with the Broncos since 2018, bouncing back and forth between the practice squad and active roster. He can play both guard and center.

This was a curious move because the Broncos just promoted Dawson from the physically unable to perform list to the active roster on Monday. Denver has some injuries at cornerback so it was an interesting decision to part ways with Dawson. He might be a candidate to return on the practice squad.
Placed two more players on Reserve/COVID-19 list

Denver placed inside linebacker Justin Strnad and cornerback Michael Ojemudia on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, where they will join tight end Noah Fant and quarterback Drew Lock.
Meanwhile, guard Netane Muti has been cleared from COVID-19 protocol, but the Broncos will get a two-day roster exemption for him. Muti will likely return to the 53-man roster later this week.
Signed LB Avery Williamson and OT Casey Tucker to practice squad

Williamson spent time on the Broncos’ practice squad earlier this year but they lost him when the Tennessee Titans added him to their active roster. Tennessee released him last week, and Denver brought him back.
To make room for Williamson and Tucker on the practice squad, Denver cut wide receiver David Moore and tight end Caleb Wilson.
Protected 4 players on the practice squad

Denver protected offensive lineman Quinn Bailey, defensive lineman Jonathan Harris, inside linebacker Curtis Robinson and wide receiver Seth Williams on the practice squad. They will not be eligible to leave the team to join another team’s active roster this week.
The Broncos’ 16-player practice squad is now full.
