In a corresponding move, Denver is waiving RB Nate McCrary, per Ryan O’Halloran.
Patrick, 24, went undrafted out of Eastern Kentucky in 2020. He signed on with the Jaguars practice squad late in the season and returned on a futures deal for 2021.
Jacksonville waived Patrick coming out of the preseason last month and brought him back to the practice squad.
He has yet to appear in an NFL game.
During his five-year college career, Patrick recorded 179 total tackles, 42.5 tackles for loss, 27.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, one interception and three pass defenses in 48 career games.
