DENVER (KDVR) – The Broncos have released veteran linebacker Todd Davis.
Davis led the team in tackles three of the last four seasons. He played six seasons for the Broncos, four as a starter. Davis has dealt with injuries (calf) in training camp the past couple of years. He was a member of the Super Bowl 50 team.
The additions of Mark Barron and Austin Calitro meant Todd Davis was in a battle for playing time. Alexander Johnson and Josey Jewel round out the unit.
Davis was due to make $4.5 million this season and was in the final year of his deal in Denver.
The Broncos need to reduce their roster to 53 players by Saturday at 2 p.m.
