Broncos Worked Out 15 Players Including QB Nathan Peterman

The Denver Broncos brought in 15 free agents for workouts on Friday and Monday, according to Howard Balzer.

The full list of tryouts for the Broncos includes:

  1. P Jeff Locke
  2. WR Dres Anderson
  3. WR Fred Brown
  4. WR DeAndre Smelter
  5. WR Ka’Raun White
  6. WR DeAngelo Yancey
  7. TE Billy Brown
  8. FB Dimitri Flowers
  9. RB Khalfani Muhammad
  10. RB Akrum Wadley
  11. QB Nathan Peterman
  12. QB Nic Shimonek
  13. QB Logan Whiteside
  14. T Dakoda Shepley
  15. G Salesi Uhatafe

Of this group, the Broncos elected to sign Muhammad to their practice squad.

Peterman, 24, was taken in the fifth-round of last year’s draft by the Bills. He signed a four-year, $2.63 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $555,000 for the 2018 season.

The Bills made the decision to finally move on from Peterman last Tuesday.

In 2018, Peterman has appeared in four games for the Bills and completed 54.3 percent of his passes for 296 yards, one touchdown and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 50 yards and touchdown.

Yancey, 24, is a former fifth-round pick of the Packers back in 2017. He signed a four-year, $2.62 million contract with the Packers and was set make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Packers waived him at the start of last season.

Yancey later re-signed to the Packers’ practice squad and brought him back on a futures contract only to cut him loose coming out of the preseason. He had another brief stint on the Packers’ taxi squad.

During his four-year college career at Purdue, Yancey caught 141 passes for 2,344 yards receiving (16.6 YPR) and 20 touchdowns for the Boilermakers.
