One of the surprise cuts yesterday was running back Andre Brown from the New York Giants.
The Denver Broncos moved quickly to swoop him up off the waiver wire. Brown was expected to sign with the Giants practice squad, but will be implemented immediately into the Broncos game plan.
Brown was drafted by the Giants in the fourth round of 2009, but suffered a ruptured achillies tendon in training camp and was placed on injured reserve. He led the Giants in the 2010 preseason in rushing yards.
He has yet to notch a statistic during the regular season in the NFL.
The signing leaves question marks as to who will leave from the Broncos current roster (and it may not be a running back necessarily, but likely will).
Denver’s practice squad should be announced today.
UPDATE: To make room for Brown the Broncos have waived Bruce Hall if he clears waivers he will likely be added to their practice squad.
