Denver Broncos: Team adds playmaker DeAndrew White at WR
The Denver Broncos added a former Alabama Crimson Tide star receiver to the roster, claiming DeAndrew White off of waivers and letting go of Philly Brown…
The Denver Broncos and head coach Vance Joseph weren’t kidding around when they said players had to show up and practice if they wanted to make the team.
He initially made that comment about Carlos Henderson and Kenny Bell, two wide receivers who had not participated in much of the final week of OTAs.
Now, Philly Brown has been let go, and the team is moving on with guys who can play ball right now.
Brown suffered an apparent head injury in a weight room accident and hasn’t been able to see much of the field for the Broncos since he signed.
The team placed a waiver claim on former Alabama playmaker DeAndrew White, who was recently let go by the Houston Texans.
The Broncos were obviously awarded White and he takes Brown’s spot on the team.
White has had a pretty under-the-radar NFL career thus far, spending time with the San Francisco 49ers (2015), New England Patriots (2016), and Houston Texans (2017) before getting his new shot with the Denver Broncos.
White was a playmaker at Alabama and finished his career there with 12 receiving touchdowns and two BCS National Championships.
In addition to being a speedy threat at the receiver position, White has been an emergency return specialist in his football career.
He’s obviously facing a major uphill battle to getting on the Broncos’ roster, and having been around since 2015, he’s also running out of practice squad eligibility if he hasn’t already.
He is going to have to make a bunch of plays in training camp and in the preseason to catch the eyes of scouts and personnel not only in Denver but around the league.
