ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Friday signed long snapper Thomas Gafford and waived nose tackle Darius Kilgo, it was announced.

Gafford (6-2, 250 pounds) is a ninth-year player who appeared in 119 regular-season games and two playoff contests with Kansas City (2008-14), Chicago (2015) and Oakland (2015). He entered the NFL with Green Bay as a college free agent in 2006 from the University of Houston.

After appearing in his first NFL game with the Chiefs in 2008, Gafford went on to play in 105 consecutive regular-season contests with the Chiefs before signing with Chicago as an unrestricted free agent in 2015. He played 11 games with the Bears last year before spending the final three weeks of the season with the Raiders.  

In addition to his snapping duties, Gafford collected 19 special-teams tackles and recovered one fumble during his first eight NFL seasons.

A four-year letterman at Houston, he played 47 games for the Cougars as the school’s long snapper. He recorded 16 special-teams tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery during his collegiate career.
Gafford graduated from Clear Brook High School in Friendswood, Texas, and was born on Jan. 29, 1983, in Houston.

He will wear No. 45.
