The full list of players who tried out includes:

  1. LB Corey Nelson
  2. TE Evan Baylis
  3. LB Stephone Anthony
  4. LB Terrance Smith

Nelson, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Broncos back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,268,600 contract and made a base salary of $690,000 for the 2017 season before signing a one-year, $1.6 million contract with the Eagles. 

Unfortunately, the Eagles elected to release Nelson in a move that cleared $1 million of available cap space. After a brief stint with the Falcons, Nelson signed a futures contract with the Buccaneers but was among their final roster cuts. 

Nelson returned to the Broncos at the start of 2019, but his season was cut short when he tore his bicep during Week 8. 

In 2019, Nelson appeared in seven games for the Broncos, recording ten tackles and no sacks.

Anthony, 28, is a former first-round pick out of Clemson by the Saints in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Dolphins acquired him from the Saints in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2017.

The Dolphins declined to pick up Anthony’s fifth-year option and he played out the final year of his four-year, $7.731 million rookie contract.

Anthony then had brief stints with the Falcons and Jets before re-signing with the Saints. His second stint there didn’t last long as the team opted to release him a short time later.

In 2019, Anthony appeared in 12 games for the Saints and recorded one tackle.
