The Denver Broncos made three reserve/future signings on Wednesday, adding offensive tackle Andreas Knappe, defensive lineman DeShawn Williams, and wide receiver Kenny Bell to the offseason roster.

These moves are always interesting to monitor, and while they don’t always yield immediate success, the Broncos have had some decent luck with these pickups.

Specifically, they have been able to bring in players from the outside like Jordan Norwood, who was a key contributor on the Super Bowl 50 team, and more recently, defensive lineman Shelby Harris, who has proven to be a significant find.

Because of the Broncos’ recent success, I think it’s important not to take these moves lightly. The Broncos also signed their 10-man practice squad all to futures contracts at the end of the season, so this is the first wave of players to be brought in since that group.

Players who are signed to a reserve/future contract with a team become part of the 90-man roster on the first day of the new league year (March 14th).

Let’s examine these moves one by one…
