John Elway has changed his mind about adding another quarterback to the Denver Broncos‘ roster.
The Broncos signed undrafted free agent Nick Stevens of Colorado State on Thursday Jermey Parnell Jersey , three weeks after Elway said he wouldn’t bring in a fourth passer for offseason workouts.
After bypassing QBs in the NFL draft last month, notably Josh Allen and Josh Rosen with the fifth overall pick, Elway said he was satisfied with the group he had.
Free agent Case Keenum was declared the starter when he signed with Denver in March and last month Elway said Paxton Lynch and Chad Kelly will compete for the backup role this summer.
”We are not going to bring another one in for OTAs,” Elway said on April 28 after wrapping up his 10-member draft class without adding another quarterback.
Yet Case Keenum Jersey , for the second consecutive year the Broncos have added a local QB.
Last year, it was Kyle Sloter of Northern Colorado, who signed with the Minnesota Vikings‘ practice squad after getting cut by Denver. Sloter, who split snaps with Trevor Siemian and Lynch in training camp Tyron Smith Jersey , later was elevated to the Vikings’ 53-man roster.
In four years at Fort Collins, Stevens threw for 8,554 yards with 70 touchdowns and 29 interceptions. He completed 61.9 percent of his passes.
The Broncos will enter the third phase of organized team activities next week when the offense lines up against the defense for the first time.
After Panthers right tackle Daryl Williams tore his MCL and dislocated his kneecap in late July, the expectation was that he’d miss a fair amount of regular season time.
Williams remains on the 53-man roster in Carolina James Hanna Jersey , however, and the team hasn’t ruled him out of playing in the season opener against the Cowboys. There’s a good reason for that, namely the fact that Williams was back on the practice field Sunday as the Panthers began preparing for their matchup with Dallas.
Williams said, via Bill Voth of the Panthers website Kevin Johnson Jersey , that he’s taking things day by day in terms of playing in Week One and that he’d like to play if deemed ready for action.
Guard Amini Silatolu was also practicing on Sunday, but left tackle Matt Kalil remains out of action after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee.
