Over three seasons, he's only played in 27 games, with six starts. All of those starts came last year, when he tallied 32 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 10 games.
Here are other roster moves we're tracking on Saturday:
- The Broncos announced they signed receiver Jamarius Way. Terms were not disclosed. Receiver Romell Guerrier was designated as reserve/retired.
Way is an undrafted rookie free agent out of South Alabama.
