Broncos waive two, sign three players to 90-man roster

The Denver Broncos have restored their 90-man roster to its full quota with the signing of three defensive players.

The team waived longsnapper Christian Kuntz on Thursday, with incumbent Casey Kreiter set to continue in the position he has held since 2016.

The departure of former CSU Rams QB Stevens means the Broncos will head into training camp next month with Case Keenum, Chad Kelly and Paxton Lynch as their three quarterbacks.

Mount, who tore his Achilles during organized team activities, cleared waivers and is now on the Broncos’ injured reserve list, giving the Broncos three spaces to bring in additional resources ahead of training camp which begins towards the end of July.

With three spaces to play with, the Broncos added defensive rookies Bo Bower and Antonio Simmons, as well as defensive end Caushaud Lyons, after successful tryouts.

Bower was teammates at Iowa with the Broncos’ 2018 fourth-round pick Josey Jewell.

The duo were on the Hawkeyes defense between 2014 and 2017 combining for 441 tackles in 26 games in 2016 and 2017 with Bower playing the Will linebacker role.

Lyons, 25, has bounced around the league since being picked up in 2015 as an undrafted free agent by Tampa Bay.

He spent the 2015 and 2016 seasons on the Pittsburgh practice squad, before landing practice squad or offseason roles in Tennessee, Los Angeles (Rams), Detroit, Chicago and Minnesota last season.

Defensive end Simmons signed with Tampa Bay as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Tech, but was waived in May.

He ran a 4.51 40-yard dash at his pro day, which is pretty handy for a guy weighing in at 6-3, 246 pounds.
