Former PSU standout DaeSean Hamilton to be waived by Broncos: report

Update: 8:20 p.m.

DaeSean Hamilton has been waived by the Denver Broncos, according to the report below from Ian Rapoport, after the club tried to work out a trade involving the wide receiver.

Now Hamilton could have a chance to return to Pennsylvania as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.


ORIGINAL STORY

DaeSean Hamilton, Penn State’s career receptions leader, is getting waived by the Denver Broncos after spending three seasons with the team. That is according to the following report out this afternoon from NFL Network:

Hamilton caught 214 passes during his Penn State career, surpassing the program record of 179 set by Deon Butler. Hamilton was drafted in the fourth round by the Broncos in 2018. He played 46 games, starting nine, and caught 81 passes for 833 yards and five touchdowns for Denver.

The Broncos have a lot of receiving depth, including former Penn State standout KJ Hamler, which made it tough for Hamilton with the club. But as the tweet above suggests, Hamilton should be a good candidate to get picked up by another team.
