Ojemudia was a 2020 third-round pick by the Denver Broncos. The Broncos waived him on Tuesday. The second-team All-Big Ten cornerback played college football for Iowa. According to Larry Mayer with the Bears, Ojemudia has regular-season playing experience in all three years he’s been in the NFL:
Ojemudia was selected by Denver in the third round of the 2020 draft out of Iowa. He appeared in all 16 games with 11 starts as a rookie, registering 62 tackles, six pass breakups and four forced fumbles. But he has played in just five games the past two seasons, two in 2021 and three this year.
Charlton played in five games for the Chicago Bears this season. He earned a 44.0 overall grade by Pro Football Focus for his play this season. Charlton played 67 total snaps of defense for the Bears. He amassed two tackles, one pressure, and one stop.
