Kory Sperry couldn’t help but chuckle Wednesday morning when asked to recall his range of emotions this week.
The Dolphins released the second-year tight end from Colorado State on Tuesday. A day later, Sperry received a call from his agent telling him he’d been picked up by his hometown team.
Suddenly, the 25-year-old had the chance he’d dreamed of since his childhood growing up in Pueblo, Colo., and rooting on the John Elway-led Broncos.
“It was just a big shocker, man,” Sperry said. “I’ve followed the Broncos a lot, and I’m excited about what they’re doing. At the same time, just being close to my family is going to be fun. It got me real excited.”
