15 of Broncos’ 16 practice squad additions remained in camp with group, including quarterback Brett Rypien
The Broncos announced Sunday they have actually filled 15 of their 16 practice team spots with gamers who were in training school with the group.
The last spot will go to cornerback Kevin Toliver, who was waived by Chicago, according to a source. Toliver made the Bears as an undrafted free agent in 2018 when Broncos coach Vic Fangio and defensive coordinator Ed Donatell were on Chicago’s staff.
The Broncos did not claim any gamers off waivers so their preliminary 53-man roster stays unchanged and just one of the gamers they waived– outdoors linebacker Justin Hollins– was claimed by another team. Hollins was gotten by the Los Angeles Rams.
Before training school, the NFL and NFLPA reached an arrangement to expand the practice squad from 10 in 2015 to 16 this year since of the coronavirus pandemic, including an optimum six areas for veteran players. Four players every week can be secured by the Broncos, preventing them from signing with and being placed on another team’s active lineup.
Cornerback DeVante Bausby is the only Broncos practice team member who is considered a veteran.
Offense (9): Quarterback Brett Rypien, running back LeVante Bellamy, running back/fullback Jeremy Cox, receivers Trinity Benson and Fred Brown and offensive linemen Patrick Morris (center/guard), Jake Rodgers (take on), Darrin Paulo (tackle) and Quinn Bailey (tackle/guard).
Defense (7): Bausby, Toliver, protective lineman DeShawn Williams, outside linebacker Derrek Tuszka, inside linebacker Josh Watson and safeties Alijah Holder and P.J. Locke.
The most noteworthy player not invited to the practice squad was receiver Juwann Winfree.
General manager John Elway stated Saturday he didn’t anticipate to be active on the wire. He wasn’t … nor were a lot of his coworkers.
Elway didn’t claim a gamer on Labor Day Weekend for the seventh time in his 10 years running personnel. Only 17 gamers changed teams via waivers on Sunday– the Broncos was among 20 groups who not did anything.
Fangio intended to sign Hollins to the practice squad, however instead, he will be signing up with the Rams to bet protective coordinator Brandon Staley, the Broncos’ outdoors linebackers coach last year.
