Broncos Release Keo From Suspended List

Shiloh Keo incurred a two-game suspension stemming from a DUI arrest this offseason and was scheduled to be eligible to return in advance of the Broncos’ Week 3 game. He will now be looking for another team after the defending Super Bowl champions released him from their suspended list, Mike Klis of 9News reports (on Twitter).

Keo functioned as a second-string safety for the Broncos after his notable Twitter plea to Wade Phillips partially led to a then-safety-depleted Denver team signing him midway through last season. However, Denver then drafted safeties Justin Simmons and Will Parks this year, and the former saw action in sub-packages against the Panthers.

Despite the DUI arrest, the Broncos re-signed Keo to a one-year, $760K deal in mid-April. They will now keep four safeties, with Simmons and Parks working as the second-teamers behind T.J. Ward and Darian Stewart. The latter is playing in the final season of a two-year contract.

Injuries to Ward, Stewart and David Bruton helped Keo see action in four regular-season games last season. He intercepted a fourth-quarter pass against the Chargers that resulted in the Broncos scoring the go-ahead touchdown shortly after and weeks later recovered the AFC title-cementing onside kick against the Patriots.

Originally a fifth-round Texans pick in 2011, the 28-year-old Keo started 11 games in 2013 and made 52 tackles.
