The Denver Broncos will workout several players on Tuesday, according to multiple league sources. The team is not looking to sign players at the moment, but rather have emergency options down the road in case of injuries.

Among the most notable players Denver will reportedly workout Tuesday is veteran safety Darren Sharper, who most recently played with the New Orleans Saints. Sharper has connections to the Broncos coaching staff and would provide solid depth in the secondary.

With the Broncos receiving depth being tested, speculations have been made about the team also giving veteran wide receiver Terrell Owens a look.  With two young receivers on the practice squad in Eron Riley and D’Andre Goodwin however, it seems more likely that the Broncos would activate one of those two players before bringing in an aged veteran.

On Monday, the Broncos worked out punter Daniel Power and running backs Thomas Clayton and Jalen Parmele, according to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com. Denver’s “starting” running back, Knowshon Moreno, may miss at least one more game with a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, former Broncos and Redskins running back Clinton Portis will work out for the Tennessee Titans today, whom the Broncos will play on Sunday.

We’ll keep you updated if any of these visits turn into signings.

    why would we work out a punter?  did colquitt get hurt?

    Not that we know of, maybe just in case he does get hurt but that seems like bad luck to me.

    The kicking game is one of our few strengths.  I don’t understand it.

    Terrell Owens is in Korea getting stem cell treatment for an ACL (similar to Peyton Manning’s neck treatment in Europe), from what I read yesterday.

    You still need some depth on the kicking game I think, look at the Chargers in week 1 giving tryouts to nobodies during half time… lol

    Yup, weird.

    There is no way in hell the broncos would keep two punters on the roster.  

    No team in the league is that moronic…well, maybe Oakland.

    Said he wants to be back by Week 4, by then hopefully Lloyd + Thomas will be back…

    According to Jason La Canfora, the team will workout at least one defensive tackle today, although it is not known who that defensive tackle is (yet).

    Andrew Mason of MaxDenver.com shed on light on the situation via twitter:

    “Workouts: not necessarily about now, but getting in-person observations for reserve-future signings to fill roster in offseason.”

    Denver is probablu just thinking about down the road, maybe bringing two punter to camp next summer, and have a back-up plan in case Colquitt gets hurt.

    So whom, is “speculating” about TO? I ask, because they are a moron. He’s not healthy, let alone in the country, getting cell therapy performed.

    And when players are injured but expected back, isn’t it prudent, if not just plain smart, to use players already familiar with the system (PS players)?

    Isn’t that what I just said?
