The Broncos had to trim their roster to 75 players today, and after releasing/waiving three yesterday, the team got to the league mandated number with two more transactions today.
The Broncos released wide receiver Taylor Jacobs and placed Carlton Powell on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, Head Coach Mike Shanahan announced.
Jacobs joined the Broncos on November 6 of last year and played in six games. He was waived earlier this offseason and then rejoined the team for training camp.
The Broncos selected Powell in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft, but he injured his right Achilles tendon during the team’s offseason conditioning program in July.
