Posted Nov 7, 2017

The Broncos have a new linebacker.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos made a pair of linebacker transactions on Tuesday, signing Joseph Jones and waiving Kevin Snyder.

Jones, who was signed off of the Seahawks' practice squad, previously competed on the Chargers' practice squad. He entered the NFL in 2017 as a college free agent with the Cowboys and played for Dallas through the preseason before being cut.

The rookie linebacker appeared in 37 games, including five starts, at Northwestern University, totaling 70 tackles (44 solo), three sacks, two passes defensed and one fumble recovery.

A native of Plano, Illinois, Jones will wear No. 43.

Snyder recently rejoined the Broncos on Oct. 24 as a practice-squad member before being promoted to the active roster on Oct. 28. He had a stint with the Broncos previously, joining the team for the final month of the 2016 season and the entire offseason and preseason. He was waived by Denver on Sept. 2 during roster cuts.
