Denver Broncos Waive Tight End Richard Gordon, Again

The Broncos made a transaction on Wednesday.

The Denver Broncos have waived journeyman tight end Richard Gordon, the team announced Wednesday. Gordon came to the Broncos in October of 2015. 

Gordon's time in Denver has been a roller coaster, as this is the third time he's been waived by the Broncos in roughly six months. They like him as a developmental blocking tight end, but just recently signed a younger player—one with arguably more upside—following the NFL Draft. 

Henry Krieger-Coble went undrafted out of Iowa, but the Broncos made him a priority free agent pickup. He'll compete with Virgil GreenJeff HeuermanGarrett Graham, and Manesseh Garner for a spot on the roster. 

It's been a tough road for Richard Gordon. The former Miami Hurricane has also spent time with the Baltimore RavensKansas City ChiefsOakland RaidersTennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers, since entering the league as a sixth round pick of the Raiders back in 2011.
