Broncos find cuts are harder to make this year

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) It's a good bet that some of the players who'll be asked to turn in their playbooks in Denver will be scooped up by other teams this weekend. The roles were reversed not long ago and the Broncos were the ones scouring the waiver wire to plug holes in their roster.
