Broncos sign WR David Moore off Raiders' practice squad, promote QB Brett Rypien to active roster

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Following KJ Hamler's season-ending knee injury, the Broncos have added depth to their wide receiving corps.

Denver signed wide receiver David Moore off the Raiders' practice squad, the team announced Tuesday.

The Broncos also promoted quarterback Brett Rypien from their practice squad to the active roster.

Denver placed Hamler and linebacker Jonas Griffith on injured reserve in corresponding moves.

Moore, a former seventh-round pick by Seattle, has caught 78 passes for 1,163yards and 13 touchdowns in his career. In 2020, he started six games for the Seahawks and appeared in all 16 as he caught 35 passes for 417 yards and a career-high six touchdowns.

Moore joins Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, Diontae Spencer and Kendall Hinton on the Broncos' active roster. Jerry Jeudy is expected to return from IR later this season.

Rypien, a second-year player, won his only career start when he led Denver to a victory against the Jets last season. The Broncos now have three quarterbacks on their active roster.

The Broncos also announced that they've protected the following players on their practice squad: tackle Quinn Bailey, wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland, linebacker Curtis Robinson and guard Austin Schlottmann.
