by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets waived Gradkowski on Friday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Gradkowski was attempting to earn a role providing depth on the Jets' offensive line, but he seemingly failed to turn enough heads during training camp. Assuming he clears waivers, he will be forced to look for a new landing spot.

Gino Gradkowski: Reaches injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gradkowski (knee) reached an injury settlement with the Panthers on Friday, per the official NFL transaction log.

Gradkowski started three games in place of starter Ryan Kahil before getting injured himself last season. Knee surgery ended the 28-year-old's season late last year, and he apparently suffered some setbacks during his attempted recovery.

Panthers' Gino Gradkowski: Progressing well from knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gradkowski (knee) is progressing well from knee surgery, The Charlotte Observer reports.

Gradkowski went down in late November with an unspecified knee injury and ultimately finished the season on injured reserve. It isn't clear when he'll be cleared to return to football activities, but the notion that he's progressing well in his recovery implies that he at least hasn't suffered any sort of setback.

Broncos C Gino Gradkowski out to prove he can be a starter
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Broncos center Gino Gradkowski admitted that he has something to prove now that he's with his new team. 

The Ravens traded Gradkowski to the Broncos on Wednesday, with the move becoming official following his physical on Thursday. Gradkowski was Baltimore's starter in 2013 but was moved to backup duty in 2014. 

In Denver, he'll have a shot to start again. 

"(Last season) was very difficult for me, but I came out of it a better player and a better person. I have a chip on my shoulder now," Gradkowski said, via The Denver Post. "I feel like I have a lot to prove and I can't wait to get started with that."

Gradkowski is expected to compete with Matt Paradis for the starting center job. Gradkowski does have familiarity with what the Broncos want to do offensively. Coach Gary Kubiak and offensive coordinator Rick Dennison were both on the Ravens staff in 2014. 

"I think (Kubiak) bringing in players he had before will help bring the other players along, so that's a benefit, too," Gradkowski said.

Ravens trade center Gino Gradkowski to Broncos
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

The Ravens have parted ways with a former 2012 draft pick. 

On Wednesday, the Ravens traded Gino Gradkowski to the Broncos, both teams announced. Gradkowski was selected in the fourth round of the 2012 draft out of Delaware.

After Matt Birk retired following Baltimore's Super Bowl victory, Gradkowski stepped into the starting role at center. He did not have a good season and was replaced in 2014 by Jeremy Zuttah following a trade with Tampa Bay.

The Ravens and Broncos will also swap 2016 draft picks as part of the deal. It's assumed the Ravens will receive the higher pick in the trade.
