Broncos sign S Shamarko Thomas to active roster, DL Niles Scott to practice squad

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos signed veteran safety Shamarko Thomas on Tuesday to fill out their 53-man roster, the team announced.

Denver also released NT Kyle Peko and DE DeShawn Williams from their practice squad and signed DL Niles Scott to the practice squad.

Thomas spent time in Denver during the preseason after the Broncos placed Jamal Carter on injured reserve.

Thomas was later released when the Broncos trimmed their roster to 53 players.

The sixth-year player has appeared in 60 career regular-season games and four postseason contests.

In addition to providing depth at the safety position, Thomas could be a candidate to help the Broncos on special teams. Thomas led the Bills in special teams tackles during his nine games in 2017.

Scott is a 6-foot-3, 280-pound rookie from Frostburg State. The college free agent spent time in San Francisco's offseason program.
