Broncos sign TE Richard Gordon, waive TE Mitchell Henry

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The Denver Broncos bolstered their tight end corps by signing five-year veteran Richard Gordon and waiving rookie Mitchell Henry.

This is the third AFC West team for Gordon, a 28-year-old who has played in 34 NFL games since being drafted by the Raiders in 2011 out of the University of Miami.

Gordon, who also plays special teams and fullback, spent two seasons in Oakland before joining the Steelers, then playing for the Titans and Chiefs last season.

The Broncos had claimed Mitchell off waivers from Green Bay in September but he didn't play in any games.
