Though Mitchell Henry didn't make the final cut in Green Bay, the tight end has found a job in the NFL. According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Wes Hodkiewicz, the Denver Broncos have claimed Henry off waivers.
Henry was one of several tight ends signed by the Packers this offseason to the 90-man roster. The Western Kentucky product managed to stick around to the final cutdown despite playing most of the preseason with an oversized club over his left hand to protect a broken middle finger. For the Broncos, a team that lost star tight end Julius Thomas in free agency and third-round pick Jeff Heuerman to injury, Henry can serve as an in-line blocker as well as a contributor on special teams.
Henry becomes the second most notable player cut by Green Bay to find work elsewhere. Defensive lineman Khyri Thornton, a third-round pick in 2014, was claimed by the New England Patriots.
