The Denver Broncos made some moves on the defensive line, replacing former Chiefs DL Bobby Richardson with Billy Winn.

The Denver Broncos announced a pair of moves along the defensive line as they released veteran defensive end Bobby Richardson and replaced him with Billy Winn.

Richardson is a former member of the Kansas City Chiefs, although you’d have to be a super fan to remember his time on the team. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the New Orleans Saints and impressively enough made 11 starts as a defensive end his rookie season. Unfortunately that was the bulk of his NFL experience. Richardson latched onto K.C.’s practice squad in 2016 for a matter of weeks before being released last November. He was picked up by the Broncos in February.

Winn will be familiar to Broncos fans or those paying attention in the AFC West, since he played for Denver in all 16 games last season, starting two of them. He’s another veteran body along the defensive front for the team to bring in for competition in training camp. Winn has a total of 68 career starts to his name over the course of six years, including three seasons with the Cleveland Browns and one with the Indianapolis Colts.
