The Denver Broncos have signed free-agent guard Matt McChesney and released defensive tackle Josh Shaw.

McChesney (6-foot-4, 307 pounds), who played at the University of Colorado, is entering his third NFL season and joins the Broncos from Miami, which released him on Monday. He competed on the Dolphins’ practice squad and saw time in one game for the club last season before he was placed on injured reserve on Nov. 15.

McChesney’s only other NFL game action came as a rookie with the New York Jets in 2005 when he posted three tackles in three games played as a defensive lineman. He entered the NFL with St. Louis as a college free agent on April 29, 2005.

The guard spent his first three professional seasons (2005-07) with the Jets and also earned All-NFL Europa honors in 2007 while helping the Frankfurt Galaxy advance to World Bowl XV. He began the 2008 season on the Jets’ practice squad before signing with the Dolphins’ practice squad on Sept. 23.

At Colorado, McChesney earned honorable mention All-Big 12 Conference honors as a defensive tackle during his senior season. He received the Dave Jones Award as the team’s most outstanding defensive player and the Derek Singleton Award for spirit, dedication and enthusiasm.

A USA Today honorable mention All-American at Niwot High School in Longmont, Colo., McChesney was born on Nov. 6, 1981.
