BRONCOS SIGN TE MANASSEH GARNER; PLACE DE VANCE WALKER ON INJURE RESERVE

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Friday signed tight end Manasseh Garner and placed defensive end Vance Walker on injured reserve, it was announced.

Garner (6-2, 239 pounds) is a first-year player who joined the Broncos on a futures contract on Jan. 13, before being waived on July 28. He entered the NFL with Kansas City as a college free agent on May 11, 2015, and spent training camp of his rookie season with Cleveland. Garner was signed to Buffalo’s practice squad for the final week of the 2015 season.

Garner appeared in 23 games (14 starts) at wide receiver, H-Back and tight end for the University of Pittsburgh after beginning his career and playing 20 games at the University of Wisconsin. He totaled 52 catches for 637 yards (12.3 avg.) with five touchdowns in 43 collegiate games.

Garner, whose first name is pronounced muh-NESS-uh, graduated from Brashear High School in Pittsburgh and was born March 11, 1992.

 Walker (6-2, 305 pounds) is an eighth-year pro who suffered a torn ACL in his right knee during practice on Monday morning and will miss the entire 2016 season. He has appeared in 104 regular-season games (32 starts) and seven postseason contests (2 starts) during his career with Atlanta (2009-12), Oakland (2013), Kansas City (2014) and Denver (2015).
