Roster moves: Denver Broncos waive former Georgia, Kentucky players
The Denver Broncos’ most recent roster moves included waiving a pair of former SEC players.
Former Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick and former Kentucky punter Max Duffy. Patrick was waived with an injury designation, meaning he could remain with the Broncos on injured reserve if he goes unclaimed in waivers. This was recently the case with former Florida wide receiver Trevon Grimes with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Patrick signed with the Los Angeles Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2019. He played in 25 games for the Rams over the past two seasons, recording 5 total tackles. He was recently carted off the field of Broncos practice with an apparent leg injury.
Duffy is trying to make an active roster as a rookie. He signed with the Broncos in May after working out for the team. Denver’s special teams coordinator had recently praised Duffy when discussing the competition at punter.
Duffy left Kentucky as the program’s all-time leading punter with a 46.0-yard career average. He won the Ray Guy Award in 2019 and was an AP second-team All-SEC selection in 2020.
