On Saturday, the Broncos moved cornerback Tony Carter from their practice squad to the club’s 53-man active roster. To make room for Carter on the active roster, the team released T Herb Taylor.
A rookie out of Florida State, Carter joined the Broncos as a college free agent on Apr. 27. The 5-foot-9, 175 pound defensive back started all 50 career games he played for the Seminoles — totaling 139 tackles, nine interceptions and 26 passes defensed during his collegiate career.
Carter became the first player in Florida State history to return a blocked extra point and a blocked field goal for scores in the same game when he accomplished the feat as a sophomore against Clemson on Sept. 16, 2006. The Jacksonville, Fla. native earned second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors as a senior.
