ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos waived tight end Richard Gordon, the team announced Wednesday.
The six-year veteran was originally signed on Oct. 14, 2015 to bolster Denver's depth at tight end. He was active for five games and played five total snaps (one on offense, four on special teams) in the team's Week 8 matchup against the Packers. Gordon was waived Dec. 1 when the Broncos needed to upgrade their safety depth after multiple injuries. He was later re-signed following the end of the postseason.
