The Denver Broncos made a change to their roster on Sunday. They released second-year edge rusher Jeff Holland and signed rookie undrafted free agent Rashard Causey who was released last week by the Atlanta Falcons.
Holland, 21, was an undrafted free agent last year and spent his first season in Denver mostly on the practice squad, but was promoted to the active roster in late November. He finished with six tackles. The emergence of rookie Malik Reed has apparently made Holland’s roster spot expendable as the team decided to move in another direction.

Causey, 22, was signed by the Falcons in May as an undrafted free agent. He compiled 64 tackles, two sacks, and seven pass breakups in 23 games with the University of Central Florida.
He had battled through a hamstring injury in Falcons training camp and ultimately was unable to get enough reps to keep his roster spot. Causey must have been a guy the Broncos front office had an eye on during their draft process, so he’ll get another shot to catch on with an NFL roster.
