On Thursday, the Broncos signed free agent wide receivers Patrick Carter and Britt Davis. They also placed Kenny McKinley (knee) and Josh Barrett (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending their seasons, while waiving Patrick Honeycutt.
In addition, defensive lineman Jamal Williams made his first appearance on the practice field in pads during training camp this afternoon. In a pre-practice media session, Head Coach Josh McDaniels said Williams, who had been on the active/PUP list, had passed a physical and was ready to go.
Both newcomers also joined the team for this afternoon’s practice session.
Carter recorded eight catches for 88 yards for Tampa Bay last preseason. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound receiver later spent time on the Buccaneers’ practice squad before being signed to Seattle’s practice squad late in the season. He resigned with Seattle in the offseason but was released on June 9.
The 25-year-old began his collegiate career at Georgia Tech before transferring to Louisville, where he caught 26 passes for 396 yards and five touchdowns as a senior.
Davis registered five catches for 54 yards last preseason with the Jets after signing as a college free agent out of Northern Illinois. The 23-year-old spent part of last season on the Jets’ practice squad and resigned with the team in the offseason before being waived on Sunday.
At Northern Illinois, Davis finished fifth on the school’s career catch list with 146, while racking up 1,676 career receiving yards and 2,063 all-purpose yards.
