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.
