Now Spencer Larsen has a little company at fullback and may not have to start both ways.
The Broncos have signed free agent fullback Andrew Pinnock, Head Coach Mike Shanahan has announced.
Pinnock joins the Broncos in his sixth year in the league after spending his first five with the Chargers. The 5-foot-10, 250-pounder was selected by the Chargers in the seventh round of the 2003 NFL Draft from the University of South Carolina.
He has played in 42 career games with three starts, totaling 18 rushes for 56 yards and four receptions for 31 yards. His three starts came last year as he saw action in 10 games. In 2005, he played in 12 games, and he saw action in all 16 contests as a rookie.
The team also signed wide receiver Jayson Foster to the practice squad, and he will wear No. 13.
Foster is an undrafted rookie out of Georgia Southern University who entered the NFL with the Dolphins as a college free agent on May 1. Miami released him on September 2, and he then was signed to the Steelers’ practice squad on October 14. Pittsburgh released him on November 6.
At Georgia Southern, Foster played his freshman and junior years at wide receiver, but he played at quarterback as a sophomore and senior. During his senior campaign, he threw for 1,203 yards and 15 touchdowns while also rushing for 1,844 yards and 24 scores. That performance earned him the Walter Payton Award for the best player in the Football Championship Subdivision.
