Brown, Clark Join Roster

Posted Sep 5, 2010

The Broncos stayed busy on Sunday, adding a pair of players to the 53-man roster and five more to the practice squad.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Exactly a week before their regular season opener in Jacksonville, the Broncos continued to tinker with their roster on Sunday. They were assigned a pair off waivers -- adding running back Andre Brown from the New York Giants and offensive lineman Chris Clark from Minnesota.

The team also waived Baraka Atkins and Bruce Hall and added five players to its practice squad. The players who joined the practice squad are Kevin Alexander, Britt Davis, Riar Geer, Kyle McCarthy and Worrell Williams.

Brown, a fourth-round pick out N.C. State in 2009, led the Giants in rushing this preseason with 95 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries, despite missing the team's preseason finale because of injury. He also led the team in kick return yards, picking up 120 return yards on seven attempts. The 6-foot, 224-pounder missed his entire rookie year due to a ruptured Achilles' tendon suffered last August.

The Broncos will carry five backs into the season-opener -- Brown, Knowshon Moreno, Correll Buckhalter, Lance Ball and fullback Spencer Larsen. Buckhalter and Moreno, who combined for nearly 1,600 yards last season, both recently returned to the practice field after being injured on the first day of training camp.

The team also brought in Clark to boost the offensive line. He played in three preseason games with the Vikings, including Thursday's finale against the Broncos. Originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008, the 6-foot-5, 315-pound offensive lineman spent the last two seasons on Minnesota's practice squad.

To make room on the 53-man roster, the Broncos waived Atkins and Hall, who both joined the squad as free agents this offseason. Atkins, a fourth-year player from Miami, competed for time at outside linebacker throughout the preseason, notching a sack in the preseason opener against Cincinnati. Hall, who spent the last two seasons on Buffalo's practice squad, saw his most extensive playing time of the preseason in Thursday's finale, finishing with 15 carries for 33 yards and five catches for 34 yards.

After a busy weekend of trimming the roster in front of Saturday's deadline to cut down to 53 players, the Broncos were able to bring back five players who were waived on Saturday to join the practice squad.

Alexander, who signed as a college free agent out of Clemson in April, earned reps with the first-team defense during summer OTAs and continued to impress through the preseason while competing as an outside linebacker.

Davis, a first-year wide receiver from Northern Illinois, signed as a free agent on August 5 and caught 4 passes for 63 yards in the preseason, including a 33-yarder from Tim Tebow in the preseason opener. The 23-year-old spent part of last season on the Jets practice squad.

Geer, a tight end, caught one pass for 6 yards in the preseason. The college free agent from Colorado was an All-Big 12 Conference selection in 2009.

McCarthy saw extensive action at safety throughout the preseason, notching 10 tackles, including a preseason-high four in Thursday's finale. The Notre Dame product led the Fighting Irish in tackles and interceptions in 2009.

Williams, the brother of linebacker D.J. Williams, joined the squad late in the preseason and made an impact with a pair of tackles in each of the last two preseason games, despite being new to the system. The Cal product competed in the UFL last season.

After Sunday's moves, the Broncos have up to three spots remaining on their practice squad.
