The Broncos are moving on from one of their tight ends.
Mike Klis of KUSA reports Denver has released Nick Vannett, who was due to make $2.68 million in 2021.
Known more as a blocking tight end, Vannett appeared in 15 games last season, making 14 receptions for 95 yards with a touchdown. Vannett played 34 percent of the club’s offensives snaps.
Entering his sixth pro season, Vannett was a Seahawks’ third-round pick back in 2016. He was traded to the Steelers in 2019 and finished that season with the club before signing a two-year deal with Denver last April.
Vannett has 75 career receptions for 686 yards with five touchdowns in 70 games.
