It looks like the Broncos didn’t need any help in the personnel department.

Veteran cornerback Drayton Florence, who said recently he wanted to get into scouting when he was finished playing, was released today, a source told PFT.

Florence should be able to find work elsewhere, especially at a high-demand position. Like many older players cut this weekend, it may take until after Week 1, so their full salaries aren’t guaranteed.

The only move the team’s announced is defensive end Jeremy Beal going to injured reserve.

Update: 8:06 p.m. ET: The Broncos announced the rest of their moves.They placed linebacker D.J. Williams and tight end Virgil Green on the reserve/suspended list.

They also waived the following players: Defensive end Jamie Blatnick, safety Rafael Bush, cornerback Drayton Florence, linebacker Jerry Franklin, defensive tackle Ben Garland, guard Adam Grant, tackle Ryan Harris, wide receiver Jason Hill, guard Tony Hills, safety Duke Ihenacho, tight end Cornelius Ingram, running back Jeremiah Johnson, linebacker Mike Mohamed, wide receiver Greg Orton, wide receiver Gerell Robinson, nose tackle Sealver Siliga, cornerback Syd’Quan Thompson, guard Wayne Tribue and quarterback Adam Weber.

    Weber might get picked up. Broncos are gambling that one, hoping they can put him on practice squad.

    Adam Weber got cut instead of Caleb Hanie???

    Maybe the Jets can sign him because it will be two places where he can outshine Tim Tebow at practice.

    Shocked to see it take this long to cut Syd, Quan Thompson, he was awful. The Carter kid looked good at corner last night vs. Arizona granted it was against dudes who also got cut today.

    Has hasn’t shown enough to sign with another team, plus he would have to learn there whole playbook

    My biggest surprise was Blake, he’s been horrible throughout practice and the preseason but he still made the team? Also, Harris is probably the Broncos most valuable backup but they got rid of him to? Maybe there’s other reasons idk….
