Bumped off practice squad

Hamilton (undisclosed) was cut from Miami's practice squad with an injury waiver designation Friday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Analysis: Hamilton joined Miami's practice squad Dec. 14, so it appears that he suffered an injury shortly after signing with the team. He has not appeared in a game since the 2020 season.

Joins Dolphins' practice squad

Hamilton was signed to the Dolphins' practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: Hamilton will head to Miami after he was waived by the Texans in June with a knee injury. The wide receiver hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2020 as he suffered a torn ACL and missed the entirety of the 2021 campaign. With Tyreek Hill (ankle) a little banged up, it's possible that Hamilton could be elevated to the active roster for Saturday's matchup with the Bills.

Waived by Texans

Hamilton (knee) was waived by the Texans on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Hamilton suffered a knee injury at Tuesday's training session, ultimately leading to him being waived Wednesday. It's a tough blow for the wide receiver who missed all of the 2021 season with a torn ACL. He will now either be claimed by another team or released outright.

Suffers knee injury

Hamilton suffered a knee injury at Tuesday's training session, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: The wide receiver went down with a right knee injury at Tuesday's organized team activity, drawing over the training staff. There's no official word on his exact injury quite yet, but more information will likely come in the near future. Hamilton signed a one-year deal with the Texans in the offseason after missing all of the 2021 season with a torn ACL that he suffered last May.

Signs with Texans

Hamilton agreed to a one-year contract with the Texans on Monday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Hamilton had a consistent role for the Broncos across the first three seasons of his career, but he sustained a torn ACL last May that forced him to miss the 2021 campaign. He's now healthy ahead of offseason activities as he prepares to compete for a role with Houston. The 27-year-old secured 23 of 44 targets for 293 yards and two touchdowns during the 2020 season and will compete with Nico Collins, Chris Conley and Chris Moore for targets behind Brandin Cooks (knee) heading into 2022.

Set to be released

Hamilton (knee) will be released by the Broncos, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The report indicates that Hamilton, who suffered a torn ACL last May, has recovered from the injury. As a result, the 2018 fourth-rounder -- who recorded a 23/293/2 stat line in 16 games in 2020 -- should catch on elsewhere as a depth wideout.

Reverts to NFI list

Hamilton (knee) has reverted to Denver's reserve/Non-Football Injury list after going unclaimed on waivers Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Hamilton suffered a torn ACL away from team facilities just as the Broncos were closing in on a deal that would trade him. Instead, Hamilton will now remain on the NFI list for 2021. Hamilton will no doubt undergo surgery in the near future, then begin a lengthy rehab process.

May 19, 2021 1:34 PM EST

Officially waived Tuesday

Hamilton (knee) was waived by the Broncos on Tuesday with a non-football injury, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: The 26-year-old was apparently told Thursday that Denver would trade or waive him, and his fate was sealed after he suffered a torn ACL away from team facilities a day later. Hamilton caught 81 passes for 833 yards and five touchdowns over his three seasons with the Broncos, but he won't be taking the field in 2021 due to the injury.

Tears ACL at disastrous time

Hamilton (knee) suffered a torn ACL away from team facilities Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: It was announced Thursday that Hamilton would be waived by the Broncos, but Rapoport reports that a trade was in the works prior to the 2018 fourth-round pick tearing his ACL. Aside from being a serious injury, that the timing of Hamilton's torn ACL will likely interrupt any potential deals is a brutal blow. Denver will await further injury confirmation before making a decision on how to proceed.

May 14, 2021 1:46 PM EST

Done in Denver

The Broncos will waive Hamilton on Thursday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Hamilton has operated as a capable reserve option since joining the Broncos in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but over the past two season he found himself the odd man out in what's become one of the league's most crowded receiving corps. The fact that Hamilton also doesn't contribute much on special teams meant there was little incentive for Denver to keep him on the roster, as moving on frees up $2.18 million in cap space. It would be surprising if Hamilton passes through waivers unclaimed.

May 13, 2021 12:20 PM EST

Inconsistent in 2020

Hamilton caught 23 or 44 passes for 293 yards and two touchdowns during the 2020 campaign.

Analysis: Why can't every game be against the Chargers? Hamilton caught nine passes for 159 yards in two contests against Los Angeles, including a game-turning 40-yard touchdown in Week 8. Against all other opponents, he averaged just one catch for 9.6 yards per game. Following the Week 8 win over the Chargers, quarterback Drew Lock talked up Hamilton, but the junior from Penn State got lost in the shuffle. He'll probably remain there during the 2021 season. 2020 rookies Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Tyrie Cleveland will all enjoy their first full offseason and Courtland Sutton should be back to speed following a torn ACL. Add in Tim Patrick and it wouldn't be a surprise to see Hamilton back on the bubble come September.

Targeted six times

Hamilton caught two of six targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 32-31 loss to Las Vegas.

Analysis: Hamilton was pushed into the WR2 role mid-game after Tim Patrick went down with a foot injury. He was unable to capitalize, misconnecting with Drew Lock on a couple of deep balls down thee sideline. Hamilton enters a contract year in 2021 and, though he's had strong chemistry with Lock, faces a crowded receiving corps with the return of Courtland Sutton (knee) and KJ Hamler (concussion).

Jan 4, 2021 3:49 PM EST

Leading receiver in loss

Hamilton caught five of nine targets for 77 yards in Sunday's 19-16 loss to the Chargers,

Analysis: With KJ Hamler (concussion) forced from the game early and Jerry Jeudy having trouble with drops, Hamilton wound up seeing a season high in targets and topped 33 yards for the first time since Week 8, leading the Broncos in receiving in the process. His two best performances this year have both come against the Chargers, making him a risky option in Week 17's clash with the Raiders even if Hamler remains sidelined.

Attracts no Week 15 targets

Hamilton was not targeted on 11 offensive snaps during Saturday's 48-19 loss to Buffalo.

Analysis: Hamilton broke a three-game catchless streak with a 13-yard reception during Denver's Week 14 road win over Carolina, but his offensive role again reverted to obsolete against the Bills. The 25-year-old's best stretch of the season came Weeks 7 through 10 when he collected 12 receptions for 153 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but he hasn't exceeded 20 receiving yards in any of his 10 appearances outside of that brief span.

Dec 22, 2020 5:14 PM EST

Snaps catchless streak

Hamilton caught his lone target, a 13-yard gain, during Sunday' 32-27 win over Carolina.

Analysis: Entering Sunday, Hamilton had not recorded a reception since Week 10 against Las Vegas. He saw just one target during that stretch. Though the streak is over, Hamilton is still not a great gamble heading into Saturday's matchup against Buffalo -- especially with the continued growth of rookie KJ Hamler. Hamilton has topped 20 yards just three times this season and has seen more than three targets in a game just twice.

Dec 14, 2020 4:08 PM EST

Catchless streak continues

Hamilton was not targeted over his 12 offensive snaps during Sunday's 22-16 loss to Kansas City.

Analysis: Quarterback Drew Lock dispersed completions to seven different Broncos pass catchers Sunday night while the Penn State product went without a reception for a third consecutive outing. Hamilton enjoyed a stretch that consisted of 12 receptions, 153 yards and two touchdowns between Weeks 7 and 10, but outside of that, the 25-year-old has been held under 20 receiving yards in his other eight outings of 2020. He slots in as a secondary wideout for Denver heading into a Week 14 matchup against Carolina.

Dec 8, 2020 6:05 PM EST

Catchless in loss

Hamilton did not haul in his lone target during Sunday's 31-3 loss to New Orleans.

Analysis: The Broncos' passing game remained in park through the game as rookie wide receiver Kendall Hinton handled the quarterbacking for the Broncos. Though, for many of Denver's targets, brighter days are ahead with the return of Drew Lock from COVID protocols, Hamilton's production might improve only minimally from Sunday. The junior receiver has just six receptions for 45 yards in the four games since his clutch performance against the Chargers. The rise of KJ Hamler should keep Hamilton firmly in the WR4 role Sunday against the Chiefs.

Scores, but coughs up key fumble

Hamilton secured four of six targets for 33 receiving yards and one touchdown, losing a fumble during Sunday's 37-12 loss to Las Vegas.

Analysis: With the Broncos needing points in a hurry, down 17 points with 10:13 to go in regulation, Hamilton fumbled on the first play of a drive starting from Denver's own seven-yard line. The Raiders delivered a virtual knockout punch the very next play, extending to a 30-6 lead by virtue of ex-Bronco Devontae Booker's touchdown run. Hamilton scored a junk-time TD on the tail end of the subsequent 12-play, 75-yard drive, concluding his day as Denver's fourth-leading receiver in the yardage column. The Penn State product has 185 receiving yards and two TDs on the year as Denver heads home for a Week 11 matchup against the Dolphins.

Snags two passes

Hamilton caught both of his targets for a total of 12 yards during Sunday's 34-27 loss in Atlanta.

Analysis: Hamilton followed up arguably the best performance of his career against the Chargers were with a quiet afternoon against the Falcons. Tim Patrick's return to the lineup and the increasing comfort rookies Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler are finding in the offense certainly contributed to the modest production. Looking forward to Sunday's matchup against the Raiders, it will be interesting to see how Albert Okwuegbunam's season-ending knee injury impacts Hamilton. Though the two play different positions, Hamilton is a strong blocker in the run game while offering more pass-catching ability than TE2 Nick Vannett.

Nov 11, 2020 7:52 AM EST

Nabs first touchdown of season

Hamilton caught four of five targets for 82 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 31-30 win over the Chargers.

Analysis: Hamilton's 40-yard catch-and-run touchdown to bring the Broncos within a score in the fourth quarter is going to be the highlight, but the comeback doesn't even get started if not for an earlier Hamilton catch. With Denver trailing and facing third-and-eight midway through the third quarter, Hamilton found a soft spot in the defense and gained 18 yards. Phillip Lindsay's 55-yard touchdown came on the very next play. Hamilton has struggled with drops in key moments this season, but he came up huge with Tim Patrick (hamstring) out of the lineup Sunday with a career-high 82 yards. Patrick's health is worth monitoring to see what kind of opportunities Hamilton will have in Week 8 against Atlanta.
