The Road to 53 is never an easy one for coaches and team executives, but maybe John Elway and John Fox can sleep a little easier knowing a handful of the players they cut have landed elsewhere in the NFL.
Safety Rafael Bush has landed on the 53-man roster of the New Orleans Saints, while tackle Ryan Harris joins the zone-blocking comfortability of the Houston Texans.
Meanwhile, quarterback Adam Weber fielded practice squad offers from four teams, ultimately choosing to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, since they had two QB’s on their roster compared to the Broncos’ three.
The Broncos decided to stick with the 53 players they had in camp rather than scour the hundreds-deep waiver wire.
“That means you’re getting better,” John Elway told The Denver Post.
Do you take this as a sign the Broncos made a mistake releasing these guys? Either way, BT wishes the three of them the best of luck.

A position of terrible need last year has become a position of incredible depth. On paper, the Denver Broncos should continue their climb back to defensive respectability against opposing rushing attacks. The first team defense was stellar in the three preseason games and only faltered during the Seattle...
The Denver Broncos have unveiled their 53-man roster, and although there aren't too many shocks of the 22 casualties, there are a few that are worth noting and analyzing.
Amongst the released were 10-year veteran cornerback Drayton Florence, third-year cornerback Syd'Quan Thompson, third-year safety Rafael Bush and sixth-year tackle Ryan Harris.
Florence was a surprise...
The Denver Broncos aren't all about passing with Peyton Manning. They've built a pretty good backfield, too.
The Broncos don't want Manning to air it out 42 times a game like he did in his last season in 2010. He missed all of last year with a weakened throwing arm, has gone through four neck surgeries, his wrenching exit from Indianapolis and the free agency frenzy...
It’s here! The 2012 NFL season starts Wednesday night with the Cowboys visiting the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants. Here’s some interesting questions and answers for the upcoming season.
Peyton Manning: Will we see the old Manning or a new, not as awesome Manning?
I think we’ll see Manning get back to the Peyton of old. I do want to say that if I were a...

The 2012 preseason is finally drawing to an end, but the preseason is always the time that the casual fans begin to tune in and find out if their team will actually have a shot this season. However, there have been a couple teams that have been getting all the headlines.
Denver Broncos: Peyton Manning is back and it was odd to not see him throw touchdown passes last season. Peyton...
It’s impossible to measure a guy’s success based on one game or even a handful of games over a career in the National Football League, but it’s hard not to notice the success, or lack thereof, by Denver Broncos’ QB Peyton Manning against the 3-4 defense.
It really is impossible because Manning has had good success against the Baltimore Ravens and their 3-4 defense which you...
Current Bronco and former Patriots DT Ty Warren is returning to the field after missing the last two seasons with hip and triceps injuries. He'll make his debut next week as the Broncos host the Pittsburgh Steelers.
He sat down with the Denver Post's Lindsay Jones to talk about his return and the challenges of learning the Jak Del Rio's defense:
