Watson, 24, ended up on the active roster late in the season and played in eight games as a rookie. He finished with two tackles. Watson figures to be in play for another stint on Denver’s practice this season.
They also moved to waive wide receiver Trinity Benson. The second-year player didn’t see the field as a rookie and his path to the roster likely lay on special teams. The Broncos simple had too many wide receivers and Benson lost out on that numbers game.
Benson, 23, could be a practice squad candidate. It all depends on how the coaching staff feels about him in comparison to other wide receivers that are likely to face the chopping block today.
