The Broncos have parted ways with safety John Boyett, according to the Baltimore Sun. Boyett was arrested for misdemeanor battery, and the team quickly decided to part ways with him after looking into the situation. Boyett was on the team's practice squad, and did not appear with the club this season.
Broncos practice squad safety John Boyett was arrested early Wednesday on a charge of third degree assault, the Denver Post reports. "We are disappointed to learn of the matter involving John Boyett and are in the process of gathering more information," the Broncos told the Post. Boyett was arrested on charges of disorderly public intoxication on Sept. 2 of last year and waived by the Colts the next day. He signed with the Broncos last November.
The Broncos released the following players on Saturday: DT Kevin Vickerson, TE Jameson Konz, TE Cameron Morrah, CB Jerome Murphy, DL Brian Sanford, LB Shaquil Barrett, RB Kapri Bibbs, S John Boyett, QB Zac Dysert, LB L.J. Fort, WR Bennie Fowler, DT Sione Fua, S Duke Ihenacho, OL Ryan Miller, OL Vinston Painter, OL Matt Paradis, TE Gerell Robinson, CB Jordan Sullen and CB Lou Young.
The Broncos signed receivers Nathan Palmer and Greg Wilson, safety John Boyett, guard Ben Garland, offensive tackle Paul Cornick and defensive ends Hall Davis and John Youboty to reserve/futures contracts.
The Colts announced Tuesday they waived safety John Boyett from the reserve/non-football injury list. Boyett was a 2013 sixth-round pick.
