ENGLEWOOD, Colo.—The Denver Broncos moved quickly to replace wide receiver Kyle Williams, who suffered an Achilles tear over the weekend at training camp, signing wideout Corbin Louks. Louks played quarterback at Utah, before transferring to Nevada.
With the Wolfpack, Louks played strong safety and eventually moved to receiver in 2011. At 6-foot-0, 200 pounds, he is a dynamic athlete, as he showed at times during his career as a dual-threat quarterback.

The 26-year-old Louks spent last fall playing in the Fall Experimental Football League (FXFL), like fellow Bronco Tevrin Brandon. He signed a futures contract with the Kansas City Chiefs last December, but was waived in May.
He’s bounced around the professional football landscape since 2012, even spending time on the Seattle Seahawks practice squad. He replaces Williams on the Broncos roster and steps into a receiver group that is young and deep.
Guys like Jordan Taylor and Jordan Norwood have already begun to separate themselves in the early stages of camp. And Solomon Patton has earned some praise already from coaches for his work in the return game.
Louks faces an uphill battle in Denver, but at the very least, he gets the opportunity to live his dream of playing professional football.
