Broncos waive RB Royce Freeman, DL Jonathan Harris


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — After claiming DB Mike Ford and RB Nate McCrary off waivers, the Broncos have made a pair of moves to reduce their roster to 53 players.

Denver has waived running back Royce Freeman and defensive lineman Jonathan Harris, the team announced Wednesday.

Freeman, a 2018 third-round pick, carried the ball 297 times for 1,187 yards and eight touchdowns during his time in Denver. He also caught 69 passes for 409 yards and a touchdown. Freeman started eight games for the team, all of which came during his rookie season.

Harris, meanwhile, is a second-year defensive lineman who appeared in three games with the Broncos in 2019. He missed the entire 2020 season while on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list, but he competed with the Broncos in training camp and made the initial 53-man roster on Tuesday.
