ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The agent for Perrish Cox says the Denver Broncos have waived the struggling cornerback.

Jordan Woy tweeted the news Saturday, adding that "any teams looking for a good, young CB should jump. Good starts under his belt."

Cox started nine times as a rookie last year and was the backup to right cornerback Andre' Goodman this summer, but he played poorly in the final preseason game Thursday night at Arizona.

Cox is facing a sexual assault case that is scheduled for trial this year. He has pleaded not guilty and is free on $50,000 bail.

Broncos general manager Brian Xanders is scheduled to meet the media Saturday afternoon to talk about the team's moves.

Fellow second-year cornerback Syd'Quan Thompson was lost for the season with a torn Achilles tendon Thursday night.
