Broncos Trade Randy Gregory To San Francisco

The Denver Broncos have traded pass-rusher Randy Gregory to the San Francisco 49ers. San Francisco will send a sixth-round pick in 2024 to Denver, while the Broncos will send back a seventh-round pick along with Gregory.

Denver planned to release Gregory but they never officially processed the move, leading to the trade. The Broncos will eat most of the remaining guaranteed money on his contract.

Gregory played in just 10 games, accumulating three sacks, two forced fumbles and 21 total tackles. His first season with the team was marred by a knee injury that placed him on the injured reserve list and a one-game suspension for engaging in a fight after a game.

Before joining Denver, Gregory spent seven years with the Dallas Cowboys, where he faced multiple lengthy suspensions but still managed to be productive with 16.5 sacks. — 3:45 p.m.

Dolphins Place LT Terron Armstead On IR

The Miami Dolphins have placed offensive tackle Terron Armstead on Injured Reserve because of a lingering knee issue, meaning he'll miss a minimum of four games.

Armstead has been on the injury report every week to start the season and re-aggravated his knee injury during Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Head coach Mike McDaniel said the injury is not season-ending, and Armstead will return at some point. Veteran Kendall Lamm will start in his place.

Miami will host the New York Giants on Sunday and then have the Panthers, Eagles and Patriots. The earliest Armstead could return is Week 9 when the Dolphins face the Kansas City Chiefs in Germany. — 3:30 p.m.

Bears Trade Chase Claypool To Dolphins

The Chicago Bears have traded wide receiver Chase Claypool to the Miami Dolphins. Miami will send a sixth-round pick in 2025 to Chicago, while the Bears will send back a seventh-round pick along with Claypool.

Chicago traded a second-round pick to Pittsburgh for Claypool last November, ultimately becoming the No. 32 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. He played in just 10 games for the franchise, catching 18 passes for 191 yards.

Claypool expressed frustration with his role in the Bears’ offense last Friday, responding with a “no” when asked if he feels he has been placed in the best position to showcase his skill set. The Bears then made him inactive last week and again last night against Washington.

The Dolphins recently lost receivers Erik Ezukanma and River Cracraft to injuries, and Claypool will come in as depth. — 11:02 a.m.
