The Denver Broncos worked out veteran safety Darren Sharper on Tuesday, the Denver Post confirmed. But the former five-time Pro Bowler left Dove Valley unsigned.

Denver gave Sharper a physical examination and if any injuries happen down the road, the Broncos may give him a call. At thirty-five years old, Sharper is two years younger than Denver’s Brian Dawkins, but is coming off a microfracture surgery on his knee last season.

Another workout that had us puzzled was that of punter Daniel Power, who reportedly worked out for the team on Monday. A former American rugby footballer, Power is pursuing a career in the NFL as a punter. He’s worked out for five teams over the past two seasons, but has no experience as an NFL player.

The workout was a head scratcher considering that the Broncos have one of the best punters in the league in Brittion Colquitt and would never carry two punters on the roster during the season. Andrew Mason of shed some light on the situation this afternoon over Twitter:

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

The Broncos may be taking a look at Power with the future in mind, perhaps considering bringing two punters to camp next summer. Having multiple kickers and punters in training camp was something former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan did during his time in Denver.

Receiver Quan Cosby and tight end John Nalbone were the lone signings of the day. Expect several more transactions to happen throughout the week.

    I guess noting that Sharper is two years younger than Dawkins was sorta pointless considering that Dawkins is an ageless X-man Wolverine.

    it would be awsome to have sharper on our team, regardless of how old he is.
