ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos on Thursday made several roster moves, which began with re-signing defensive lineman Le Kevin Smith.
The team also released linebacker Andra Davis and defensive lineman J'Vonne Parker.
Smith, who was acquired by Denver in a trade with New England on Aug. 17, played in 13 games for Denver in 2009. He notched his first career sack against Baltimore in Week 8, and made his first career start against Pittsburgh in Week 9.
Davis played in all 16 games in 2009, starting 13, and finished third on the club with 72 tackles, including a team-high 14 for a loss. It marked the seventh-consecutive season he started at least 10 games.
Parker did not play in his only season with the Broncos after being placed on IR on Aug. 8. He has appeared in 11 games during his NFL career while seeing time on the rosters of Carolina (2008), Atlanta (2008), Baltimore (2007-08), Dallas (2006) and Cleveland (2005-07).
