When Garrett Grayson was coming out of Colorado State, I wanted him on the Broncos.
Unfortunately at the time, that didn’t work out and Grayson was picked in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the New Orleans Saints.
He did not fare well with the Saints at all, spending two seasons there before spending two seasons with their division rivals in the NFC South in Atlanta.
The Broncos signed the 27-year old Grayson to their practice squad this year and then to a reserve/futures contract. He was slated to be one of the highest selections in the 2018 AAF quarterback draft before signing on with the Broncos.
Grayson will be 28 this coming May. His time in the NFL is not running out but his time to make an impression is. He has to prove over the course of the offseason that he can be valuable, at least as a backup.
His situation will be an interesting one to monitor over the offseason, but he’s got the chance to work with Denver’s new staff, at least for now, and prove he can be a fit in Scangarello’s offense.
