The Denver Broncos have waived safety P.J. Locke who had himself a very good training camp. The team will be looking to bring Locke back onto their 16-man practice squad once he clear waivers.

Locke went undrafted in 2019 out of Texas and was picked up in December by the Broncos who added him to their practice squad. He has had a very good training camp too, regular intercepting the quarterback from his safety position.
He was in a three-way battle for the backup safety positions.
“You’ve got Trey Marshall who actually started some games for us last year,” Fangio said three weeks ago. “He’s on a proper path. He’s had had a good camp. Alijah Holder, P.J. [Locke] as well—they’re all battling around. There’s not a lot of numbers back there. Everything they do in special teams will have a part in our final decisions.”
It would appear Alijah Holder did just a bit more. We’ll have to see if he makes the initial 53-man roster.
