Broncos Cut DT Jurrell Casey


According to Adam Schefter, the Broncos are releasing DT Jurrell Casey on Thursday. 

The team later confirmed the move in its official announcement.

Denver acquired Casey last offseason in a trade from the Titans, who were looking to shed salary. Casey had been a productive player but was hurt for a majority of the 2020 season. 

According to Over The Cap, releasing Casey frees up $11.874 million in cap space with no dead money. 

Casey, 31, is a former third-round pick of the Titans back in 2011. He still had two years remaining on his five-year, $37.431 million contract when he agreed to a four-year, $60.4 million extension that included $40 million guaranteed back in 2017.

Casey stood to make a base salary of $11.25 million for the 2020 season when he was traded to the Broncos for a seventh-round pick. 

In 2020, Casey appeared in three games for the Broncos and recorded 14 tackles, including one for a loss, no sacks and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 20 interior defensive lineman out of 119 qualifying players.
