Rypien could be a candidate for Denver’s practice squad once he passes through waivers unclaimed.
Rypien, 24, wound up going undrafted out of Boise State last year before signing a three-year, $1.755 million contract from the Broncos. Denver waived Rypien coming out of the preseason before re-signing him to their practice squad soon after.
The Broncos promoted Rypien to their active roster in October but waived him and re-signed to their taxi squad in December.
During his college career at Boise State, Rypien was the MWC Offensive Player of the Year and a First-Team All-MWC selection as a senior. He threw for 13,578 yards while completing 64 percent of his passes and 90 touchdowns over the course of four seasons and 50 games.
