The Green Bay Packers were looking at Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Tavarres King to fill their injury-ridden roster.

The Broncos said, “Nope, not right now.”

Denver signed King to their active roster and waived linebacker Adrian Robinson to make room. King was on the Broncos’ practice squad and caught five passes for 64 yards in preseason play.

He was taken in the fifth round (161st overall) of the 2013 draft, so it’s easy to see why the Broncos didn’t want to Green Bay to have him. The Broncos must really think highly of the rookie to put him on an active roster that is filled with a lot of high-caliber receivers.

Robison was waived after playing in all six regular season games for the Broncos, making one solo tackle on defense and two tackles on special teams. Now that Von Miller is back, Robinson was the one deemed expendable.
