Broncos cut cornerback Adam Jones

Adam Jones' stay with Denver ends after 11 weeks and seven games after he was signed just before the start of the season

The Adam Jones experiment with the Denver Broncos is over.

Denver waived the cornerback after just 11 weeks with the team and promoted cornerback Brenden Langley from the practice squad, the team announced Wednesday morning.

The Broncos also signed cornerback Linden Stephens to their practice squad.

Jones was signed just before the season and appeared in seven games, including two starts. He had one interception but missed three games with a thigh injury. He also served as the team’s return man.

Jones, 35, was in his 12th season and his fourth team.

Langley, a second-year player from Lamar University, was Denver’s third-round pick in the 2017 draft. He played in 11 games as a rookie and recorded two tackles and had six kickoff returns.

He spent the first 11 weeks of the 2018 season on Denver’s practice squad.

Langley could see action Sunday against Pittsburgh if Bradley Roby can’t play. Roby is in the concussion protocol and did not practice Wednesday but he did do some work on the side.

MILLER EARNS AFC AWARD: Denver linebacker Von Miller was named the AFC defensive player of the week on Wednesday for his play in the 23-22 win over the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

This is the fourth time Miller has won the award and the first time since Week 2 of the 2016 season.

Miller recorded his 100th career sack (including postseason) against the Chargers to become the fifth-fastest player (121 games) to reach that milestone. Miller also had a 41-yard interception return to set up Denver’s second touchdown.
