And the transactions just keep on coming.
Head Coach Mike Shanahan announced Monday that the team claimed safety Calvin Lowry off waivers from the Tennessee Titans. The Broncos waived Roderick Rogers to make room for Lowry on the roster.
They also added three players to the practice squad in defensive end Ryan McBean, running back P.J. Pope and wide receiver Travis Wilson.
Lowry joins the Broncos after spending the past two years in Tennessee. The Titans drafted Lowry in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL Draft from Penn State University. He played in 36 games for the Titans, starting 11 last year, and he has racked up 62 tackles, two interceptions, 12 passes defensed and 19 special teams stops.
McBean, a fourth-round selection by the Pittsburgh Steelers last year, spent most of 2007 on their practice squad. He made his pro debut in the Steelers’ season finale.
Pope spent most of 2007 on the Chicago Bears’ practice squad. He joined the Bears in 2006 as an undrafted college free agent, then spent part of ’06 with the Green Bay Packers where he saw action in one game and notched a special teams tackle.
This is Wilson’s third year in the NFL, having spent the first two with the Cleveland Browns after they selected him in the third round in 2006. He has played in four games with one start, recording two catches for 32 yards.
