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.
