The Denver Broncos on Monday waived running back Toney Baker, offensive lineman Kirk Barton and wide receiver Patrick Carter, the team announced.
Baker was signed as an undrafted free agent from North Carolina State on April 30. Barton and Carter also were in their first year with the team.
None of the three players saw time in the Broncos’ recent 20-25 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Rosters must be cut down to 75 players by August 31st and 53 players by September 4th; while this might be a case of the Broncos trimming the fat a bit early, it’s still possible they’ll bring in players in the meantime. Denver’s third preseason game is against Pittsburgh on August 29th.
