The Denver Broncos released defensive tackle Jurrell Casey after just one season, the team announced Thursday.

Casey's release clears about $11.9 million in cap space, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

A five-time Pro Bowler, Casey was acquired by the Broncos from the Tennessee Titans before the 2020 campaign. He suited up for just three games after a biceps tear ended his season.

Casey becomes the second veteran the Broncos have cut this offseason, joining cornerback A.J. Bouye. The departures save the club a combined $23.6 million, according to Mike Klis of 9News.

The veteran defensive tackle, who has recorded 51 sacks over his career, is now free to sign with any team.
