Original item, 7:45 a.m. April 11: The final tryout for the Denver Broncos 2011-2012 cheerleaders squad was scheduled for yesterday, with voting taking place through noon. So who won? We should know in the coming days -- but we can take a look at the hopefuls, thanks to photos posted by the team of last week's preliminaries, in which the field was narrowed down to sixty finalists competing for 26 slots.
Look below to see a photo gallery of the action -- and we'll update you when the winners are announced.
