Buckhalter and Coats Released, McLaughlin Waived

Posted Jul 29, 2011

On Friday, the Broncos made three transactions.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- On Friday at 4 p.m. MDT, clubs could begin officially signing free agents.

In addition, the first waiver wire of the 2011 season was released, and along with it came three transactions from the Broncos.

Running back Correll Buckhalter and tight end Daniel Coats were released and running back Mike McLaughlin was waived.

Buckhalter gained a career-high 882 yards from scrimmage in his first season with the Broncos, but his production declined in 2010 when he picked up a career-low 387 yards from scrimmage.

The 11th-year running back served as a veteran leader in a relatively young backfield during his time in Denver. He spent his first eight years with Philadelphia, where he totaled the third-best yards per carry average by an Eagles running back in team history.

Coats played in four games with the Broncos last season, making three special teams stops. McLaughlin was signed to a futures contract by the team on Jan. 5, 2011.
