Despite already having eleven wide receivers on the roster, the Broncos on Saturday signed former Houston Texans wide receiver David Anderson. The news was first reported by Anderson himself, via Twitter.
Coming to Denver after playing in Houston for the past five seasons, Anderson is entering his sixth year in the league at age 28. Anderson is a 5-10, 197 pound receiver who played college ball at Colorado State.
Many Bronco fans were hoping a free agent Texan would sign with Denver today. Anderson wasn’t that player, however. Former Houston defensive tackle Amobi Okoye was on the mind of many fans’ and the Broncos did target him. According to sources, Okoye just signed with the Chicago Bears.
The Broncos still haven’t inked a stud defensive tackle, so Anderson’s signing is a bit confusing. The team is already loaded with depth at receiver and Anderson hasn’t done much during his career.
From 2006-2010, Anderson caught 81 passes for 886 yards and 3 touchdowns. He will compete with the younger receivers on Denver’s roster during training camp.
Color me confused and a bit disappointed with EFX. Where’s that defensive tackle?
