The Denver Broncos waived center J.D. Walton and signed defensive end Jeremy Mincey on Tuesday.
Injuries got the best of Walton, who spend most of the 2012 season on injured reserve, and then was on the team’s reserve/PUP for the first eight games of the 2013 season.
Walton was drafted by the Broncos (3rd round/80th overall) in the 2010 Draft, and he started in 36 regular season games, and two postseason contests.
Mincey was signed to add depth to a position hit hard by injuries. He is a sixth-year player, who played in 64 regular season contests (40 starts) and totaled 276 tackles, 20 sacks, one interception, and six forced fumbles for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Mincey was selected by New England in the sixth round of the 2006 Draft.
