Broncos To Sign TE Manhertz

The Denver Broncos are reportedly signing tight end Chris Manhertz to a two-year, $6 million deal with $3.34 million guaranteed, according to his agent Sean Stellato via ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

The former Jaguar played 34 games with 21 starts over the last two seasons, including one of their playoff games last season. 

Manhertz, 30, originally made his NFL debut through the Saints practice roster in September 2016 but was released a month later. He was then claimed off of waivers by the Panthers the next day and spent four seasons there before joining the Jags on March 17, 2021. 

In 17 games last season (11 starts), Manhertz recorded just eight receptions for 42 yards and is set to reunite with his former Saints HC Sean Payton, who now resides in Denver.
