At 6-0, the Denver Broncos are in a better spot than a handful of other teams in the league. Despite that, the team is always looking to improve while they can.
On Tuesday, it was reported that the team has brought in ten players to work out for the franchise before they closed out practice for the week with the bye. One of the players that tried out for the Broncos was former Colorado State Pueblo wide out Paul Browning.
Browning was a star for the ThunderWolves, as he recorded school records for receiving yards and touchdowns with 2,507 yards and 24 touchdowns. His efforts help lead the ThunderWolves to a Division II championship in December.
Other players participating in the workout included
QB Seth Lobato (Nortern Colorado)
WR DaVaris Daniels (Notre Dame)
LB Sage Harold (James Madison University)
LB J.R. Tavai (University of Southern California)
TE Matt LaCosse (Illinois)
TE Harold Spears (New Hampshire)
DB John Lowdermilk (Iowa)
DB Ryan Murphy (Oregon State)
OT Andrew McDonald (Indiana)
The one name that jumps out to me is tight end Harold Spears. The Broncos invited him to a workout before the NFL Draft this offseason. And from my analysis, he reminds me a little bit of Julius Thomas. But the question lies if he can protect against the run as well?
In another move made before the Broncos ended things for the bye was the return of a local star running back. After clearing waivers, the Broncos re-signed running back Kapri Bibbs to the practice squad.
Bibbs only saw 19 snaps, including zero on offense. However, he did return a kickoff 15 yards to start the overtime period against the Cleveland Browns.
He played on Sunday due to an injury to running back Juwan Thompson. He would later be waived on Monday to make room for tight end Richard Gordon.
It is great to see the former Colorado State Ram back in the orange and blue. He clearly has a lot of potential. All we can do is hope that he will get another chance in the near future.
