ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos have dipped into their past again, signing free agent tight end Jeb Putzier - three years after letting him go.

Putzier is a seventh-year player who played in Denver from 2002 to 2005 after the Broncos made him a sixth-round draft pick out of Boise State. He played in six games, starting once, for Seattle this year before the Seahawks waived him Nov. 26. He also spent two years with Houston.

In 67 career games, Putzier has 96 catches for 1,251 yards and three touchdowns. He also has 10 catches for 159 yards and a TD in the playoffs, all in Denver.

He's the second former player the Broncos have tapped in the last month. They recently brought back tailback Tatum Bell.

Meantime, the Broncos waived safety Herana-Daze Jones, who was signed last week and didn't play in a game. They also signed running back Steve Baylark to the practice squad.
