It's been a busy week for the Denver Broncos. Before the dust could even settle from the NFL Draft, the Broncos signed 15 college free agents. Then, the team signed four-time Pro Bowler Jamaal Charles on Tuesday.
Wednesday, the Broncos made another couple of roster moves, signing defensive lineman Billy Winn and waiving defensive end Bobby Richardson. Richardson, a former undrafted free agent who started 11 games as a rookie in New Orleans, was signed by Denver earlier this year.

Winn, a sixth round selection of the Cleveland Browns in 2012, appeared in all 16 games for the Broncos in 2016, with two starts. He tallied 19 tackles (8 solo) and a fumble recovery. He played the fourth-most snaps (342) on the defensive line.
You always hate to see underdog players go, like Richardson. It's the nature of the business, alas. In Winn, the Broncos get a player they're familiar and comfortable with, who offers versatility to the D-line depth.
Nothing is guaranteed, however. After selecting DeMarcus Walker in the second round, and signing a couple CFA D-linemen, Winn will have to fight once again to earn a place on the 53-man roster.
