DENVER — The final cuts for next season’s Denver Broncos cheerleading squad were made Sunday.

The fan favorites were in action for final auditions, hoping their names was called for next season. The best and brightest 26 were chosen in front of a packed house at the Gates Concert Hall on the University of Denver campus.

Nearly 1,000 people were there. The final auditions capped off a weeklong tryout that included dancing, written football tests and interview skills.

The final roster consists of 16 veterans returning from last year’s squad and the addition of 10 rookies.
