According to Adam Schefter, the Broncos are signing WR De’Mornay Pierson-El to a contract.
Pierson-El and Darboh were trying out with Denver at minicamp this week and apparently impressed enough to earn a roster spot.
Pierson-El will compete for a role as a backup receiver and returner at camp, while Darboh is a bigger-bodied wideout.
Pierson-El, 25, signed with Washington as an undrafted free agent out of Nebraska in 2018 but was cut a few weeks later. He spent some time in the Canadian Football League with the Montreal Alouettes before catching on in the AAF.
Pierson-El played in 2019 with the now-defunct Salt Lake Stallions before signing on with the Raiders. He spent each of the past two seasons on their practice squad.
During his time with the Stallions, Pierson-El recorded 36 receptions for 414 yards (11.5 avg.) and one touchdown.
Darboh, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2017. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $3.175 million contract when the Seahawks waived him coming out of the preseason in 2019.
The Patriots later claimed Darboh off of waivers. However, he lasted just a week in New England before he was waived with a failed physical designation.
Darboh’s contract was reinstated with Seattle and he reverted to their injured reserve. The Seahawks once again waived him and he had brief stints with the Buccaneers and Steelers before the Panthers signed him last year. Carolina waived him back in March.
In 2017, Darboh appeared in all 16 games for the Seahawks and caught eight passes for 71 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
