ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos have signed three of their tryout players from last weekend's rookie minicamp.

Denver signed tackle Cody Conway, quarterback Case Cookus and linebacker Pita Taumoepenu, the team announced Monday.

Tackle Calvin Anderson also officially signed his exclusive rights tender, which will keep him under contract with the Broncos through the 2021 season.

Denver also made a pair of corresponding moves, as the Broncos waived linebacker David Curry and tackle Ryan Pope to remain below the NFL's 90-man roster limit.

Conway is a former 33-game starter at Syracuse who went undrafted in 2019. Though he has yet to appear in a regular-season game, he has spent time on NFL practice squads over the previous two seasons.

Cookus joins Drew Lock, Teddy Bridgewater and Brett Rypien on the team's roster at quarterback. He was undrafted in 2020 and signed with the Giants after posting 105 career touchdown passes at Northern Arizona University.

Taumoepenu, a 2017 sixth-round pick by the 49ers, has appeared in seven career games. He most recently played in a regular-season contest in 2020, when he recorded two tackles in a game for the Falcons.

Anderson will remain with the Broncos after appearing in all 16 games in 2020. He made the first two starts of his career last year, as he manned the left tackle spot against the Panthers and the right tackle spot against the Raiders. He should provide depth for the team again in 2021.
