The Denver Broncos have claimed center/guard Patrick Morris off waivers, per The Athletic’s Nicki Jhabvala.
Morris was waived yesterday after Maurkice Pouncey officially returned from suspension. He was promoted and dressed for the last two weeks though didn’t log an offensive snap. He was a highly touted UDFA two years ago.
The obvious Broncos’ connection is Mike Munchak, the Steelers’ o-line coach when Morris was signed last season, as they look for depth and a futures player to carry throughout the offseason.
Pittsburgh’s depth along the interior offensive line has again been diminished. The Cincinnati Bengals claimed rookie guard Fred Johnson off waivers earlier this year. BJ Finney is slated to be a free agent this offseason while Ramon Foster’s contract expires after the 2020 season.
