Broncos waive WR Nathan Palmer from active roster, shuffle practice squad

Palmer, McDermott, and Robinson are out. Jones is in. The Broncos practice squad and roster are each one short until the next move is announced. Perhaps a Wes Welker reinstatement is imminent?

The Denver Broncos have waived wide receiver Nathan Palmer from their active roster, one week after the training camp attendee was elevated from the practice squad to replace the suspended Wes Welker.

No roster move has been announced to replace Palmer on the active roster.

The Broncos also shuffled their practice squad, releasing long snapper Kevin McDermott and signing tight end Dominique Jones to the 10-man unit. Jones (6-3, 270 lbs.), a 2012 college free agent out of Shepherd University, has bounced around the league and different practice squads. He's a third-year player who has appeared in 12 career games (3 starts) with Indianapolis (2012-13) and Kansas City (2013), totaling three receptions for 42 yards (14.0 avg.).

In addition, longtime practice squadder tight end Gerell Robinson has been signed to the Cleveland Browns' active roster. Brock Osweiler's BFF is stolen away again.

It appears Palmer's release is in anticipation of a possible ruling in favor of the Broncos and Wes Welker being reinstated. The NFLPA is reportedly expected to vote on the matter Tuesday and has scheduled a conference call for 7:00 p.m. MDT.
