The Denver Broncos have signed RB Zac Brooks to their practice squad on Wednesday and released RB Terrell Watson from the unit, according to Nicki Jhabvala.
The Broncos’ practice squad now consists of:
- OL Dillon Day
- DT Kyle Peko
- OLB Vontarrius Dora
- TE Henry Krieger-Coble
- OL Justin Murray
- TE Steven Scheu
- DB Taurean Nixon
- DT Travis Raciti
- RB Zac Brooks
Brooks, 22, wound up being selected with the No. 247 overall pick by the Seahawks back in May. He signed a four-year, $2.4 million rookie and stands to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season.
Unfortunately, Brooks was among one of the Seahawks roster cuts as they got down to 75 players but was added to their practice squad a few weeks into the regular season.
Seattle elected to cut him loose a few months ago and he had a brief stint with the Chiefs before returning to Seahawks last month. Seattle once again parted ways with Brooks a few weeks ago.
During his college career at Clemson, Brooks ran for 607 yards on 116 carries (5.2 YPC) to go along with 17 receptions for 197 yards receiving and eight total touchdowns.
