Broncos sign five players for 2014

Denver signed five players to future contracts for 2014: ex-CU Buffs lineman Ryan Miller, ex-PSU tackle Mike Farrell, former Bucs WR Jordan Norwood, and former Browns S Eric Hagg and LB L.J. Fort.

Broncos waive Walton

In order to create room on the roster for the newly signed DE Jeremy Mincey, Denver waived center J.D. Walton on Tuesday.

Walton started 36 straight games straight out of college, but his career was derailed by a gruesome leg injury suffered in September 2012.

Broncos add Jeremy Mincey

As we'd brilliantly suggested (more like threw $%^& against the wall) might happen a couple of days ago, the Broncos have added former Jaguars DE Jeremy Mincey.

Jacksonville had cut Mincey last week over repeated issues of tardiness and violation of team rules.

The 6-4, 265-pounder was drafted by the Patriots in 2006, and played under Jack Del Rio for 4.5 seasons with the Jaguars.

Broncos place Vickerson on IR, add Fua

As expected, the Broncos have placed Kevin Vickerson on IR and replaced him with a veteran free agent.

Denver has signed DT Sione Fua (6-1, 310), a third-year player drafted by Carolina in the third round (97th overall) of the 2011 Draft.

The Stanford alum has 22 total tackles and one forced fumble in 27 career games (12 starts).

Broncos place Moore on short-term IR, sign Huff

The Broncos have placed Rahim Moore on short-term IR following his surgery for lateral compartment syndrome, and filled his roster spot with former Raiders and Ravens safety Michael Huff.

Moore played 30 snaps during Denver's 27-17 win over Kansas City on Sunday night before leaving with what was characterized on NBC as a mysterious leg injury.

He was replaced by Mike Adams, never to return, and underwent surgery Monday morning.

Broncos activate Walton; Moffitt retiring

Denver moved center J.D. Walton to the active roster on Tuesday and placed John Moffitt on the reserve/left squad list.

Walton had resumed practicing on October 16; Moffitt had been inactive for six of the team's eight games and says he's retiring from the NFL at age 27.

Broncos add Bumphis to PS

Following the departure of Tavarres King, the Broncos have signed WR Chad Bumphis to their practice squad.

Bumphis went undrafted out of Mississippi State and signed with Miami, who made him one of their first cuts this summer.

Panthers claim King, ending his Denver saga

Carolina claimed WR Tavarres King off waivers from Denver on Monday. King had been waived to make room for Von Miller, merely days after the Broncos had convinced him to stick around rather than join the NFCN-leading Packers. The 2013 fifth-rounder joins a team that has won three of its last four games; the Panthers cut cornerback D.J. Moore to make room for him.

Good for Tavarres; we wish him well, and hope he's able to take advantage of his new opportunity.

Broncos waive King to make room for Von

Just days after convincing Tavarres King to stay in Denver rather than sign with Green Bay, the Broncos have released their fifth-round wideout. A move was necessary to make room for Von Miller, who is returning from suspension.

King had been on Denver's practice squad and drawn interest from the Packers, who placed WR Randall Cobb on short-term IR this week.

Bucs release Freeman, will pay his salary in full

Unable to find a trade partner after having dragged his name through the mud, Tampa Bay finally did the right thing and released quarterback Josh Freeman on Thursday. Freeman will be paid the balance of his $6.2M salary.

Prior to cutting the cord with their former first-rounder, the Bucs had fined Freeman multiple times and may have leaked word of his presence in the league's drug-testing program, a potential breach of confidentiality.
