ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Thursday signed tight end John Phillips and waived tight end Manasseh Garner (non-football illness), it was announced.

Phillips (6-5, 251 pounds) is an eighth-year player who appeared in 95 regular-season games (32 starts) and two postseason contests (1 start) with Dallas (2009-12) and San Diego (2013-15) to begin his career. He was selected by the Cowboys in the sixth round (208th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft from the University of Virginia.

His career regular-season totals include 45 receptions for 318 yards (7.1 avg.) with four touchdowns on offense in addition to 37 tackles on special teams.

Phillips spent the last three years with San Diego, playing 47-of-48 possible games and totaling the sixth-most special-teams stops (19) for the club during that span. He appeared in all 16 regular-season games for the Cowboys in three of his first four years, missing the 2010 campaign after being placed on injured reserve (knee).

A first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection following his senior season at Virginia, Phillips finished his collegiate career with 69 catches for 670 yards (9.7 avg.) with five touchdowns. He attended Bath County High School in Hot Springs, Va., and was born on June 11, 1987.
