The Denver Broncos have waived rookie wide receiver Tavarres King…again.
Just days after signing King to the active roster, the Broncos waived King on Saturday to make room for Von Miller on the active roster.
The Broncos signed King off their practice squad so they could prevent him from signing with the Green Bay Packers, and after all the shuffling around the NFL at the receiver position this week in Green Bay and elsewhere, the Broncos have essentially prevented King from suiting up this weekend for any team at all.
This is a puzzling move, as the Broncos were so dead set on keeping King around. Are they going to try to get him through waivers a second time now that teams have already made roster moves at the receiver position? Claims have been made around the league, so this might be another shrewd move by the organization.
It’s hard to believe the Broncos will be able to keep King yet again, but I thought there was zero chance he was making it through waivers after the pre-season. King is a player with good upside and the Broncos obviously liked him enough to keep him off the market this whole week.
What in the world is going on?
