DE - FA - OUT
Week 2 Outlook
The Broncos' defensive cutdown continues. After releasing A.J. Bouye last week, Denver is now parting ways with veteran defensive lineman Jurrell Casey, too.
Casey was traded from the Titans to Denver for a seventh-round pick last offseason. He appeared in just three games before suffering a season-ending biceps injury. He made 14 tackles, including two on the quarterback and one for loss, before being shut down for the year. His absence was felt in a defensive line that also lost Mike Purcell (foot) and Shelby Harris (COVID-19) for a solid chunk of time. The five-time Pro Bowler will look to bounce back as he plays for his third team in three years next season.
Jurrell Casey suffered a torn biceps on Sunday versus Tampa Bay and is out for the remainder of the season.
Another blow to a Broncos team that has already seen Von Miller and Courland Sutton's seasons lost to injury. The Broncos are still looking for their first win as they travel to Metlife Stadium to take on the New York Jets Thursday night.
Denver Broncos DT Jurrell Casey is being evaluated Monday for a potentially serious arm injury.
The five-time Pro Bowler was acquired by the Broncos from the Titans in March for a seventh-round pick. Casey suffered the injury early in Sunday's matchup with the Bucs but still played in 71% of Denver's defensive snaps. With Von Miller already out on season-ending IR, this is a huge blow to the Broncos D/ST.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Broncos are trading a seventh-round pick for Titans DT Jurrell Casey.
Casey, carrying a big salary, will certainly help improve Denver's defensive front. The 30-year-old played in 14 games for the Titans last season, totaling 26 tackles and five sacks. This could help clear up money for Tennessee to lock up running back Derrick Henry.
Jurrell Casey helped the underdog Titans topple the Ravens, 28-12, with his four solo tackles, two TFLs, two sacks, two QB hits, and one forced fumble.
Casey was a dynamic force on Saturday and had a vital role in one of the most shocking upsets this season. His strip-sack of Lamar Jackson in the third quarter was one of the many game-changing plays by Tennessee that kept the league's number one offense at bay. Casey and Titans have another tall order in the Kansas City Chiefs for the AFC Championship game next Sunday.
