By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Denver Broncos have released cornerback A.J. Bouye. He spent one season with the team.

He was acquired in a trade last off-season by the Broncos in a deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars. A 2020 fourth-round draft pick went to the Jaguars in the deal.

Bouye had a disaster season with the Broncos. This lead to the team cutting ties with the player.

He was slated to make $13 million in the final year of his 5-year deal that he signed with the Jaguars. By releasing him, it’ll save the Broncos $13.2 million in cap space.

The departure of Bouye gives the Broncos $32.73 million in cap space. New Broncos GM George Paton will have options as the team goes into free agency in March.

Bouye appeared in just seven games with the Broncos. He dealt with a shoulder injury and a concussion that hampered his time on the field.

Also, he was hit with a six-game suspension towards the end of the season. He still has two games to serve to complete the suspension during the 2021 season.

Wherever Bouye lands, it’ll be his fourth NFL team. He also played for the Houston Texans before joining the Jaguars in 2017.

He has appeared in 100 games, including 69 starts. He has had 338 tackles, including four tackles for a loss and one quarterback hit.
