Denver is moving on from DaeSean Hamilton.

According to multiple reports, the Broncos are waiving the wide receiver after three years with the club.

The Broncos were reportedly taking calls on Hamilton as far back as last month before the draft. But the club clearly did not receive an enticing enough offer to deal him.

Hamilton recorded similar numbers in each of his three seasons with Denver. Last year, he had 23 receptions for 293 yards with a pair of touchdowns. He was fifth on the team in yards, behind receiver Jerry Jeudy, receiver Tim Patrick, tight end Noah Fant, and receiver KJ Hamler.

A fourth-round pick in 2018, Hamilton has recorded a total of 81 receptions for 833 yards with five touchdowns.

The Broncos are expecting to have wide receiver Courtland Sutton back from a torn ACL in the upcoming season. Plus, the club drafted Auburn wideout Seth Williams in the sixth round. Those factors likely made it easier to let go of Hamilton.

  1. Saving $2,183,000 with very little dead money ($100K) this makes perfect sense. No one is likely to pick him up & hold onto him for that amount. If I’m a GM, I grab him off waivers, have him come into compete for a spot & if I like what I see, offer him an extension. If I don’t like what he brings, or he won’t deal, then cut him. He really lost leverage by getting waived without working out an extension. But then again, what was the best offer he turned down?

  2. Not an enticing enough offer? If they were taking calls on him, wouldn’t anything be better than nothing? Taking a conditional 7th is better than just straight releasing him.

  3. The guy has some speed but he’s just so small. Spencer coming in to return kicks on special teams forced this cut. He’ll catch on somewhere.

    Daesean Hamilton is 6’1″…….

  5. I’m guessing that The Broncos will resign him if nobody gobbles him up. Then they’ll all know his real value
