The Broncos signed punter Riley Dixon to a two-year deal Tuesday, prompting them to withdraw their tender to punter Corliss Waitman.

Waitman was an exclusive rights free agent with a $940,000 tender.

He averaged 46.6 yards per kick while leading the league with 96 punts last season.

That was Waitman’s first full year.

He punted in two games for the Steelers in 2021.

Dixon returns to Denver, which drafted him in the seventh round in 2016. He averaged a career-high 48.4 yards per punt last season with the Rams, and his net average of 41.7 yards per punt was the second-best mark of his career.

  1. if you are a punter and get a tender sign it. Right away. Waste no time. In Ink. Press firmly. Maybe sign it twice and print your name so there is no doubt.

  2. I’m interested in seeing a “signed tender” listing. Wondering if one is available anywhere?

  3. Last year they also cut their punter who refused a pay cut. That should have been a “clue” to this unemployed dude.

  4. Waitman did a good job for Denver last year. Hell, he punted about 20 times a game.
