Ex-Jayhawk Sterling done in Denver

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Former Kansas University offensive lineman Aslam Sterling is done in Denver.

Sterling, who joined the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in the hours following this year’s NFL Draft, made it through mini-camp and OTAs but left the Broncos’ training camp outside of Denver just a few days after it began.

Sterling was not cut by Denver, and his departure brought the Broncos’ roster number to 87. He might have been a long shot to make Denver’s final 53-man roster, but sources said he had done well and had impressed his new coaches and teammates throughout his time with the organization.

A two-year starter at Kansas in 2012 and 2013, Sterling came to KU after transferring from Nassau Community College. He played in 24 games for Kansas, starting most at tackle.

Other former Jayhawks currently going through training camp with NFL clubs: Chris Harris, Steven Johnson and Aqib Talib (Denver); Darrell Stuckey (San Diego); Tanner Hawkinson (Cincinnati); Anthony Collins and Bradley McDougald (Tampa Bay); Toben Opurum (Houston); and Dezmon Briscoe (Dallas).
