Broncos Release WR Taylor Jacobs; Place DT Carlton Powell On IR

New, comments

The Denver Broncos on Tuesday released wide receiver Taylor Jacobs and placed defensive tackle Carlton Powell on their reserve/physically unable to perform list, Head Coach Mike Shanahan announced.

Jacobs, a sixth-year player, saw time in six games for the Broncos last season after the club signed him as a free agent on Nov. 6.

Powell, a rookie, suffered an injury to his right Achilles tendon during the Broncos' offseason conditioning program in July. He was selected by Denver in the fifth round (148th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft from Virginia Tech University.
