Denver Broncos Release Shiloh Keo From Suspended List

Shiloh Keo is now an unrestricted free agent.

Shiloh Keo famously importuned Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips on Twitter last year to get a job. It worked. 

Keo appeared in four regular season games for the Broncos in 2015, notching five tackles and an interception. He rode the Mile High Momentum all the way to winning a Super Bowl ring. The man's not a bad salesman.

The NFL handed down a two-game suspension for violating the league's Substance Abuse policy. The Broncos re-signed Keo to a one-year deal in April and he competed in training camp and the preseason. 

But, with the rise of Denver's rookie safety duo — Justin Simmons and Will Parks — Keo found himself on the outside looking in at the final roster cut-downs. 

Today, however, the Broncos released Keo from their suspended list, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Keo is a physical safety, with some versatility. He does have a penchant for busted plays and lack of discipline. 

Some other safety-needy team could sign him after this week's action. If not, he'll sit on ice and if the Broncos have an injury to their safety corps, they could bring him back into the fold.
