The Denver Broncos Signed Safety Josh Bush, Waive Tight End Richard Gordon

The Denver Broncos made a couple of roster moves Tuesday, signing safety Josh Bush and waiving tight end Richard Gordon.

For the second time this season, the Denver Broncos said goodbye to tight end Richard Gordon, waiving him Tuesday to make room for safety Josh Bush

The Broncos signed Bush to the practice squad late last season, and eventually promoted him to the active roster, where he made an interception vs. Oakland on December 28th. Fast forward to 2015 and he made the final 53-man roster out of training camp. 

The Broncos held onto Bush and he contributed on defense as a reserve safety, but waived him in early October to make room for Tyler Polumbus, following the injury to Ty Sambrailo

Today's roster moves were preempted by the ankle injury to Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward, who is not expected to play this week vs. the San Diego Chargers

The Broncos have Darian Stewart and David Bruton as their next two safeties, with Omar Bolden as the failsafe — a guy who can play corner or safety. 

Ultimately, Bolden's value to the Broncos is on special teams, as a returner. On the field, from a defensive perspective, Bush is the better player. He's solid in coverage and he can tackle.

Bush was originally a sixth round pick of Rex Ryan's New York Jets back in 2012.
