Broncos waived/released WR Nathan Palmer, LB Shaquil Barrett, RB Kapri Bibbs, S John Boyett, WR Bennie Fowler, OG Vinston Painter, C Matt Paradis, TE Gerell Robinson, DE Brian Sanford, CB Jordan Sullen and CB Louis Young.

Painter's lone regular-season appearances came with the Colts in 2012. Bibbs showed well in the preseason (19/84/3), and should be ticketed for the practice squad.

Broncos signed WR Nathan Palmer, S John Boyett, OG Ben Garland, OT Paul Cornick, DE Hall Davis, DE John Youboty and WR Greg Wilson to reserve/future contracts.

Palmer is a third-year undrafted free agent out of Northern Illinois. He caught one pass in five games for the Colts in 2012. A 2013 sixth-round pick of the Colts, Boyett got busted on drinking-related charges shortly before Week 1, and was waived.

Colts waived WR Nathan Palmer with an injury settlement.

Palmer was active just five times last season, but kept his roster spot after being promoted from the practice squad in September. In January, GM Ryan Grigson called Palmer "about as explosive a receiver we have." He struggled to stay healthy this preseason, however, catching just one pass in two games.

Colts GM Ryan Grigson called WR Nathan Palmer "about as explosive a receiver we have."

It's high praise with T.Y. Hilton on the roster. Palmer was plucked off the 49ers' practice squad in September and appeared in five games, registering just one catch. At 5-foot-11, 195, he caught 47 passes for 695 yards and seven touchdowns as a senior at Northern Illinois in 2011. With Donnie Avery and Austin Collie set for free agency, Palmer will compete for an increased role in 2013.

Colts signed WR Nathan Palmer.

He was signed off the 49ers' practice squad. An undrafted free agent out of Northern Illinois, Palmer made six catches for 93 yards during the preseason. Although he'll be limited to special teams, Palmer's promotion bodes poorly for Austin Collie's (knee) status.
