The Denver Broncos signed two players who have previously spent time with the organization to their practice squad Wednesday: cornerback Tony Carter and wide receiver Greg Orton.
Carter started his NFL career with the Broncos. Denver signed the 5-foot-9, 175-pound cornerback out of Florida State as a college free agent in 2009. He spent that entire season with the Broncos organization, splitting time between the practice squad and active roster. He’s seen action in four games — including one start — over his three-year career with Denver (2009) and New England (2010). He also competed with Minnesota during training camp this fall.
Orton has also spent some time in Denver, competing at the Broncos training camp this year. The 6-foot-3, 199-pound receiver spent the last two seasons playing for the Spokane Shock of the Arena Football league after originally signing with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2009 as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue.
These moves come on the heels of the Broncos signing two practice squad players, linebacker Mike Mohamed and safety Kyle McCarthy, to their active roster earlier this week.
