Broncos sign nine practice-squad players to reserve-future contracts

Posted Feb 10, 2016

All nine players on the Broncos' season-ending practice squad will be on the roster at the start of the new league year.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- All nine members of the Broncos' season-ending practice squad signed reserve-future contracts Wednesday.

That group is headlined by WR Jordan Taylor, a training-camp standout last summer who proved invaluable to Peyton Manning's rehabilitation work in December as he worked his way back to playing shape from a torn plantar fascia.

Along with Taylor, five other signees spent the entire season with the Broncos: ILB Zaire Anderson, RB Kapri Bibbs, offensive linemen Dillon Day and Kyle Roberts and DE George Uko.

Bibbs was the only member of the group to see any regular-season action; he was active against Cleveland in Week 6 and played on special teams in the Broncos' 26-23 overtime win.

Joining them are safety Ryan Murphy, OT Cameron Jefferson and TE Nick Kasa, who was signed to the practice squad just in time to begin practicing with the team on Jan. 28 before it left for Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, Calif.

Bibbs and Kasa are the only non-rookies in the group. Kasa was a Raiders draft pick in 2013 and did not take up the tight end position until late in the 2011 season at the University of Colorado, but still has untapped potential and unique athleticism for a 265-pounder at his position and should factor into the tight end competition throughout the offseason.

Day, Roberts and Jefferson will also bear close monitoring in the coming months, given the historical trens of offensive linemen gestating on the practice squad or game-day inactive list for a year before pushing for playing time in their second season under Rick Dennison's watch.

Anderson had an outstanding training camp and preseason last year and will likely push for a 53-man roster spot this season.

Along with previous reserve-future signees, these nine players will officially return to the roster on March 9, when the 2016 league year begins.
