Broncos Announce More Transactions

Josh McDaniels and the Denver Broncos continue to shuffle the roster - Check out the latest transactions.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Thursday announced several transactions, including the signing of offensive lineman J.D. Walton, whom they selected in the third round (80th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft from Baylor University. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

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.
