Broncos Sign Sleeper WR Greg Wilson to Practice Squad
The Denver Broncos made another roster move on Thursday, signing former Fordham receiver Greg Wilson to the practice squad.
Wilson joins Nathan Palmer and Gerell Robinson as receivers on the Broncos’ practice squad, and continues their theme of picking up smaller receivers in recent months.
Wilson is a hair under 5’11” and 175 pounds, and is a former JUCO transfer who played two years for the Rams at Fordham. He didn’t put up ridiculous numbers, but had a great showing at the Pro Day, posting a 4.51 second 40 yard dash.
The Broncos had previously worked out Wilson with a number of different players that are likely under constant consideration for practice squad and reserve/future contracts.
As of right now, the Broncos only carry four true wide receivers on the roster, but utilize Julius Thomas as a receiver oftentimes, and also have Trindon Holliday occupying a roster spot as a receiver even though he is almost strictly a return specialist.
Those who scout smaller school prospects seem pretty excited about Wilson, saying he had a great senior campaign at Fordham with good hands and speed.
Leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft, Wilson had worked out for the Giants and 49ers.
