Klis explains that the Broncos didn’t have a swing tackle with Elijah Wilkinson replacing Ja’Wuan James as the starting right tackle, which is why Rodgers has been called up.
Rodgers, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Falcons back in May of 2015. He was, unfortunately, unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but later signed on to the Giants’ practice squad at the start of the 2015 season.
Since then, Rodgers has spent time with a few teams including the Panthers, Steelers, Chargers, Texans and Ravens before signing on with the Broncos in April. He was waived a few weeks ago and later signed to Denver’s practice squad.
Rodgers has yet to appear in an NFL game.
