ENGLEWOOD, Colorado — The Denver Broncos traded offensive tackle Chris Clark to Houston on Monday, released veteran linebacker Reggie Walker and placed rookie tight end Jeff Hauerman on injured reserved.
The Clark trade for a seventh-round pick in 2016 is contingent on his passing a physical.
Hauerman tore an ACL one week after he was drafted, but the Broncos couldn't put him on IR until the 75-man roster cut. Otherwise, he would have had to go through waivers first.
The Broncos also waived fourth-year running back Jeremy Stewart, quarterback Zac Dysert, punter Spencer Lanning, safety Ross Madison, tight end Jake Murphy and linebacker Chase Vaughn.
Three rookies were cut: cornerback Tevrin Brandon, guard Andre Davis and fullback/tight end Joe Don Duncan.
