When the Broncos close the preseason Saturday night against the Los Angeles Rams, thousands of fans will get their first in-person look at the home team since December 2019 due to attendance restrictions last year.

And those fans will get to see the home team’s starters, who will take a final spin in preparation for the Sept. 12 opener at the New York Giants.

Much is at stake after the starters depart.

“There’s always the usual number (of available roster spots) — anywhere from 5-8,” coach Vic Fangio said.

The competition is spirted throughout the depth chart such as No. 6 receiver, Nos. 3-4 safeties, No. 9 offensive lineman and Nos. 5-6 cornerbacks.
