Denver Broncos sign three athletic freaks to fill out roster
Caushaud Lyons, Defensive Line, Tusculum
The Denver Broncos are not the first team with a fan base that is going to try and get on board for the incredible package of talent that is Caushaud Lyons.
The 2015 undrafted free agent out of Tusculum has been with seven different teams already, the Broncos his eighth.
It’s rare even in a three or four season span that NFL teams would allow one player so many chances, but teams must be enamored by his 6-foot-5, 295-pound frame with the ability to run a 4.9-second 40-yard dash.
Lyons’ length and ridiculous athleticism have not given way to instant success at the NFL level, and that’s not uncommon.
Over the past three years, he’s gotten at least a couple of games worth of preseason work, most recently with the Detroit Lions.
In his preseason work, he’s flashed both as a pass rusher and run defender, and for the Broncos, he’ll compete as a base defensive end.
