Broncos' Austin Calitro: Won't re-up with Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos will not place a tender on restricted free agent Calitro, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

O'Halloran confirmed that Denver does not intend to re-sign the 27-year-old, leaving him the invitation to seek employment elsewhere. During Calitro's 2019 campaign with Jacksonville, the inside linebacker recorded four starts while compiling 40 tackles, four tackles for loss and a forced fumble. Last season as a member of the Broncos, Calitro was utilized exclusively as a special-teams contributor over his 13 appearances.

Broncos' Austin Calitro: Lifted from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos activated Calitro (hamstring) from injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Calitro has missed the last three games but will be back in action for Sunday's divisional clash against the Chargers. He only played on special teams before the injury, and his role isn't expected to change for the time being.

Broncos' Austin Calitro: Receives return designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro (hamstring) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 26-year-old landed on injured reserve in late September with the hamstring injury, but he's eligible to return after missing the three-game minimum. Calitro exclusively played special teams prior to the injury and figures to fill a similar role once activated.

Broncos' Austin Calitro: Will miss at least three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Calitro won't be eligible to return until Week 7's game against the Chiefs, which is the team's last contest before its bye. The 26-year-old linebacker has operated exclusively on special teams this year, so the Broncos may fill his role via the practice squad.

Broncos' Austin Calitro: Heads to Mile High City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns traded Calitro to the Broncos for Christian Covington, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

The Broncos cut inside linebacker Todd Davis on Friday, so the trade makes sense since Calitro can add solid depth. He likely won't be counted on for much defensively in 2020, but he averaged 18.2 defensive snaps per game and recorded 40 tackles over 13 contests last season.

Bengals' Austin Calitro: Links up with Cincy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro was claimed off waivers by the Bengals on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Calitro started four games with the Jaguars last season after starting five with the Seahawks in 2018, but he has struggled to be a consistent factor in his two-year career. The Bengals evidently valued his expertise, at one point trying to claim him off waivers last season before the Jaguars swooped in. Expect him to compete for a starting role on the team.

Austin Calitro: Parts ways with Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars waived Calitro on Monday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Calitro signed his contract tender with the Jaguars just four days before the team's decision to waive him. The 26-year-old will now look to latch on as a depth candidate elsewhere.

Jaguars' Austin Calitro: Sticking with Jags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro officially signed his contract tender with Jacksonville on Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

The 26-year-old was an exclusive-rights free agent, so there was no chance of him heading elsewhere once the team tendered him a contract. Calitro played a minimal role through the first three months of the season in 2019, but he started the final three games and finished the year with 40 tackles (30 solo), one sack and one pass breakup in 13 contests.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro had 40 tackles (30 solo), one sack and one pass defensed in 13 games this season.

Calitro played significant defensive snaps in only one game through Week 13, but he started the last three games of the season and totaled 28 tackles. The 25-year-old could return to Jacksonville if the team wants to retain him, as he'll be an exclusive rights free agent in March.

Jaguars' Austin Calitro: Tallies 12 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro had 12 tackles (11 solo) in Sunday's 24-12 loss to Atlanta.

Calitro set a career high with 11 tackles Week 15 and didn't wait long before breaking that mark. The 25-year-old has 35 tackles (27 solo) and one sack in 12 games, and he should make his fourth start of the season Week 17 against the Colts.

Jaguars' Austin Calitro: Reaches double-digit tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro had 11 tackles (eight solo) and one sack during Sunday's win against the Raiders.

The 25-year-old received his second start of the season and was heavily involved in Jacksonville's come-from-behind victory. Quincy Williams (hand) was placed on injured reserve last week, and Calitro is set to handle the starting role at weak-side linebacker for the final few weeks of the season.

Jaguars' Austin Calitro: Draws start on weak side
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro will start at strongside linebacker Sunday against the Texans, Michael DIRocco of ESPN.com reports.

Calitro filled in on the weak side in the Week 8 win over the Jets, tallying six tackles (four solo) while playing 82 percent of the defensive snaps. Another healthy snap count should await Calitro on Sunday with Leon Jacobs (hamstring) and Quincy Williams (hamstring) inactive.

Jaguars' Austin Calitro: Starting Sunday vs. Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro will start at linebacker in Sunday's tilt against the Jets, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Calitro joined the Jaguars just prior to Week 1 and has served as a special teams player thus far. He's played just one defensive snap for Jacksonville this season, but he'll figure to see a significant role Sunday in place of Leon Jacobs (hamstring).

Jaguars' Austin Calitro: Heading to Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro was claimed off waivers by the Jaguars on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Calitro was originally waived by Seattle on Monday after a solid 2018 campaign in which he logged 45 total tackles and 517 total snaps between defense and special teams over 16 games. The 25-year-old figures to slot into a rotational role in Jacksonville's linebacking corps.

Austin Calitro: Let go by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks waived Calitro on Monday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Calitro had a solid 2018-19 season with the Seahawks where he split time between defense and special teams, recording 45 tackles. He was beat out for a spot by rookie Ben Burr-Kirven and second-year pro Shaquem Griffin (knee).

Seahawks' Austin Calitro: Signs ERFA tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro signed his exclusive rights free agent tender with the Seahawks on Monday, Josh Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Calitro totaled 45 tackles (32 solo) and a pass defensed in 16 games during his 2018 campaign and will provide some depth at linebacker for the Seahawks heading into offseason activities. With K.J. Wright on the books for two more seasons, it seems unlikely Calitro will see a major boost in playing time this upcoming season.

Seahawks' Austin Calitro: Tendered by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks tendered Calitro a contract for 2019 on Wednesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Calitro appeared in all 16 regular-season contests for Seattle in 2018, logging 45 tackles and a half sack. The 25-year-old played over 40 snaps in only four games, during which he averaged eight tackles. With K.J. Wright set to test his market in free agency, Calitro could be in line for an increased role during the upcoming campaign.

Seahawks' Austin Calitro: Used as necessary in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro recorded 45 tackles (32 solo) and a half sack in 16 games for the Seahawks during the regular season.

Calitro saw 10 or fewer defensive snaps on nine occasions but he was featured more prominently in the linebacker rotation when Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright missing time with injuries. During the four games he played over 40 snaps, Calitro averaged eight tackles. The 25-year-old is under contract for next season and could contend for a starting role if Wright walks in free agency.

Seahawks' Austin Calitro: Next man up for Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calitro is poised to step into a larger role following the loss of Mychal Kendricks (leg) for the season, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Calitro seems to be the primary beneficiary with K.J. Wright (knee) and Hendricks currently sidelined. Last week, Calitro only received one defensive snap but had regularly earned 20-plus defensive snaps prior to Kendricks' brief return. Just 24 years old, Calitro possesses plenty of upside but will have to grow up quickly as Seattle looks to cement a wild card berth over the next few weeks.
