Report: Former Penn State Receiver DaeSean Hamilton Released By Denver Broncos

Former Penn State wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton is expected to be released by the Denver Broncos, according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Since being selected by Denver in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Hamilton has spent every season of his professional career with the Broncos. After missing just two games in his first three seasons, Hamilton tore his ACL during the 2021 offseason, effectively canceling an expected trade to the San Francisco 49ers.

After tearing his ACL, Hamilton was waived before being re-signed to the Broncos’ reserve list. Now, as Hamilton soon enters free agency, the fully recovered receiver is anticipated to receive offers from receiver-needy teams.

Through his 46 NFL games, Hamilton has recorded 81 receptions for 833 yards and five touchdowns.

Hamilton’s Penn State tenure was characterized by high production starting in his freshman year when he caught 82 passes for 899 yards en route to selections for the Big Ten All-Freshman Team and All-Big Ten second team. Against Ohio State, Hamilton broke the Penn State record for most single-game receptions with 14.

When all was said and done with Hamilton’s four-year collegiate career, the Penn Stater finished as the all-time leader in career receptions with 214. His 2,842 career receiving yards rank second all-time behind only Bobby Engram.
