Broncos waive WR Kerry Taylor

The Broncos reduced their wide receiver ranks by one on Thursday, waiving second-year pro Kerry Taylor, per the NFL’s daily personnel notice.

The move leaves Denver with 75 players one week before the NFL draft. The Broncos have 10 wide receivers, and it would not be a surprise if that number grew either via draft picks or free agent signings after the draft.

An Arizona State product, the 26-year-old Taylor has appeared in 10 regular season games in his NFL career, catching 22 passes for 229 yards and one touchdown in stints with Jacksonville and Arizona. He saw his most extensive action with the Jaguars in 2013, catching 19-189-1 in seven contests (four starts).

Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are Denver’s top two receivers, with second-year pro Cody Latimer perhaps in line for a bigger role in 2015.
