Broncos claim Kolby Smith off waivers

Kolby Smith will travel from one branch of the Belichick tree to another.

The former Kansas City Chief was claimed off waivers by the Broncos, who are looking for running back depth behind Knowshon Moreno, Correll Buckhalter, and J.J. Arrington.

Smith is a powerful back, but didn’t flash special ability in three seasons with the Chiefs.  The Broncos also waived 2009 preseason hero punter A.J. Trapasso and Boz relative rookie linebacker Korey Bosworth.

Britton Colquitt becomes the clear starting punter with Trapasso out the door.

  1. I don’t understand why the Broncos add runningback after runningback the past 2 offseasons. They now have 7 runningbacks on roster. And let’s not forget how they signed 5 runningbacks last offseason when there was roughly 5 on staff already.
    Is McDaniels plan to field an entire roster of runningbacks?

  2. They all got hurt last year. That is why they needed to keep signing them.
    But having 8 on the roster this time of year is not unusual. Obviously they won’t keep 8 for the season. They have 12 WR right now too. Big deal.
