Also on Thursday, the Broncos waived rookie defensive lineman Jaron Baston and designated fullback Kyle Eckel as waived/injured.
Walton (6-foot-3, 305 pounds) was a finalist for the Rimington Trophy (nation's best center) and earned first-team All-America honors as a senior in 2009, becoming the first Baylor offensive or defensive player to achieve that status in 18 years.
A three-year starter at center for the Bears, he allowed just three sacks in 721 pass plays during his final two seasons.
He was a first-team all-district and all-county offensive lineman at Allen High School in Allen, Texas, and was born on March 24, 1987.
