Broncos Place WR Marlon Brown On Injured Reserve & Promote LB Quentin Gause


According to Adam Caplan, the Broncos promoted LB Quentin Gause from their practice squad after placing WR Marlon Brown on their injured reserve.

Brown, 25, wound up signing on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia back in 2013. The Ravens elected to not tender him a restricted offer but later re-signed him to a one-year, $675,000 contract.

Unfortunately, Brown’s 2015 season ended after he suffered a back injury during Week 11 and was subsequently placed on season-ending injured reserve. Baltimore later waived him a few weeks after this year’s draft.

Brown signed on with the Broncos in July but lasted just a few weeks with the team. Denver decided to re-sign him back in November, making it another short-lived stint with the team.

In 2015, Brown appeared in 10 games for the Ravens and recorded 14 receptions for 112 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Gause, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Rutgers. He was, unfortunately, unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was later signed to the Eagles’ practice squad.

Gause lasted just a day on Philadelphia’s practice squad before signing onto the Patriots’ practice squad. However, he was waived to make room for G Chase Ferris.

Denver signed him onto their practice squad back in October.

During his college career at Rutgers, Gause recorded 190 tackles, three sacks, a forced fumble, three recoveries and three pass defenses over the course of four seasons.
