Denver cuts former second-round pick
By Bill Williamson
Say good-bye to the final piece of the Denver Broncos' three-player second round class of 2009.
Denver waived safety Darcel McBath on Sunday. To replace him Denver signed cornerback Jonathan Wilhite. Wilhite is a fourth-year player who had nine starts for the New England Patriots before being cut. He was a fourth-round pick from Auburn in 2008.
McBath was taken along with cornerback Alphonso Smith and tight end Richard Quinn in 2009, during Josh McDaniels’ first year in Denver. Denver traded its 2010 first-round pick in order to pick Smith.
Smith was traded to the Detroit Lions last season and Quinn was waived/injured this summer.
Denver also announced its eight-man practice squad. Here it is:
Player Pos. College Exp.
Jeremy Beal DE Oklahoma R
D'Andre Goodwin WR Washington R
Adam Grant T Arizona R
Jeremiah Johnson RB Oregon 2
Kyle McCarthy S Notre Dame 2
Eron Riley WR Duke 1
Austin Sylvester FB Washington R
Adam Weber QB Minnesota R
