The Broncos had been trying to trade wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton and were preparing to waive him if they couldn’t find a trading partner, but now Hamilton has suffered a significant injury.

Hamilton has a torn ACL, according to Taylor Bisciotti of NFL Network.

Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver reports that Hamilton was not at the team facility when he suffered the injury. That means the Broncos can cut him without owing him his salary for this season. If Hamilton had suffered the injury at the team facility, the Broncos would have to pay his 2021 salary.

The 26-year-old Hamilton was a 2018 fourth-round draft pick of the Broncos who was a solid contributor at times but never became a regular starter. He’s now likely to miss the entire 2021 season and hope to catch on somewhere in 2022.

  1. Did the Broncos hire Gilooly and Eckhart to start knee capping people? Dang…they should just keep working out on team property.

  2. Wow. Another offsite, season ending injury. Not only do these guys lose their salary but they also don’t get to rehab at the facility. It’ll come out of their own pocket. Might not affect JuWan James too much, but a 4th rounder on a rookie contract is gonna be squeezed.

  3. Players won’t be going to the Broncos if they keep not playing their players when they get hurt working out on their own time

  4. MileHighMystique He has already earn 3 million of the 4th round 4 million dollar contracts. How after even one season is a rookie gonna be squeezed?

  5. Players go where the money is. If offers the most, they will go. Simple as that. They won’t admit, but we all know it’s true.
