BRONCOS AWARDED C JAMES FERENTZ & TE MITCHELL HENRY OFF WAIVERS; WAIVE RB MONTEE BALL & C GINO GRADKOWSKI

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Sunday were awarded center James Ferentz (Hou.) and tight end Mitchell Henry (G.B.) off waivers, it was announced.

To make room for Ferentz and Henry on the 53-man roster, the Broncos waived running back Montee Ball and center Gino Gradkowski.

Ferentz (6-2, 285 pounds) is a first-year player who spent his entire rookie season in 2014 on Houston’s practice squad after being signed by the Texans as a college free agent from the University of Iowa. A three-year starter and a team captain for the Hawkeyes, Ferentz earned second-team All-Big Ten Conference honors as a senior in 2012 and was selected to play in the 2013 East-West Shrine Game.

His father, Kirk, is Iowa’s head football coach and his brother, Brian, is the Hawkeyes’ offensive line coach. James Ferentz, who attended Iowa City (Iowa) High School, was born on June 5, 1989.

Henry (6-4, 252 pounds) is a rookie from Western Kentucky University who competed with Green Bay during the preseason after being signed by the Packers as a college free agent.

He appeared in 47 games (22 starts) for the Hilltoppers and totaled 78 receptions for 1,094 yards (14.0 avg.) with 12 touchdowns. As a senior in 2014, Henry posted career highs in receptions (32), receiving yards (489) and receiving touchdowns (4).

A four-year letterman at tight end, defensive end and outside linebacker at Elizabethtown (Ky.) High School, Henry was born on Dec. 11, 1992.
