Richard Quinn Reaches Injury Settlement With Denver Broncos, Waived

The Denver Broncos and tight end Richard Quinn have reached an injury settlement and have parted ways, according to the team's official Twitter feed. Quinn injured his MCL two weeks ago and missed both preseason games so far. He had been declared injured/waived earlier in the week before being placed on the injured reserve. But now he is just another Josh McDaniels draft pick that failed to make it in Denver.

Quinn was the final pick of the second round in the 2009 draft, a selection made after McDaniels traded third-round picks for him. Quinn never made an impact on the field for the Broncos. He failed to record a catch as a rookie in 2009 and made just one catch in 2010, which didn't come until late in the season and with Tim Tebow under center.

Quinn is the fifth 2009 draft pick to no longer be with the team. The biggest bust in that draft class was cornerback Alphonso Smith, whom McDaniels acquired by trading a 2010 first-round pick to Seattle. Smith was traded to the Detroit Lions for tight end Dan Gronkowski right before the start of the 2010 season. Gronkowski is also fighting for a spot on the roster.
