Darby, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Bills out of Florida State back in 2015. The Eagles traded WR Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick to the Bills in return for Darby in 2017.

Darby played out the final year of his four-year, $4.569 million contract before returning to the Eagles last year on a one-year contract. From there, he agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract with Washington last year. 

The Broncos signed Darby to a three-year, $30 million contract with $19 million fully guaranteed this past March. He was placed on injured reserve after sustaining a hamstring injury in Week 1. 

In 2021, Darby has appeared in one game for the Broncos and recorded six tackles, no interceptions and one pass deflection.

Cleveland, 24, was a seventh-round pick in 2020 out of Florida. He made the team’s roster as a rookie but was among their final roster cuts in 2021. He was later re-signed to Denver’s practice squad.

In 2020, Cleveland appeared in ten games for the Broncos and made six catches for 63 yards.
