ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos have a new addition to their offensive line group after signing former Colorado State lineman Sam Carlson on Thursday. The team also designated wide receiver Marlon Brown as waived/injured.
Carlson, a rookie, was previously signed by the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent on May 9, 2016 before being waived on July 29. He started for CSU in 2014 and 2015, helping power an offense that averaged 417 yards per game in his senior season and 481 yards per game in his junior year. Carlson is a Wellington, Colorado, native.
Brown, in his fourth NFL season, spent his previous three years with the Ravens, where Head Coach Gary Kubiak served as Baltimore's offensive coordinator in 2014.
On Wednesday, Kubiak mentioned Brown had a back injury. "We're having his back evaluated. Obviously that was the problem last year," he said. "What we're trying to do is find out why his back continues to flare up on him. Hopefully we'll have some answers here in a couple of days."
