The Denver Broncs Signed Four Players To Futures Contracts On Monday

The Broncos signed four players to reserve-futures contracts on Monday. MHH Analyst Khalid Alshami reports.

Monday, the Denver Broncos signed four players they worked out in December to reserve-future contracts. Running back Cyrus Gray, wide receivers Jace Davis and DeVier Posey and defensive back B.J. Lowery round out the group. The four will not join the roster until after the postseason.

Gray, a 5-foot-10, 206-pound Texas A&M product, was a sixth round draft pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012. He has not played a regular season game since November of 2014, when he tore an anterior cruciate ligament while with the Chiefs. In 35 games over three seasons, Gray recorded 24 carries for 99 rushing yards and one touchdown, plus nine receptions for 64 yards.

Gray, who was waived by the Chiefs last July, was a high school (DeSoto High in Texas) and college teammate of Broncos linebacker Von Miller. Davis, a 6-foot-2, 209-pound receiver out of Northern Colorado, spent time with the Houston Texans during training camp last year. Previously, he spent time on the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad in 2014, when Gary Kubiak was the offensive coordinator.

Posey (6-foot-1, 206 pounds) was drafted out of Ohio State by the Texans in the third round in 2012, when Kubiak was Houston’s head coach. He was traded to the NY Jets last May, but was later waived.

Lowery (5-foot-11, 193 pounds) played for the Cedar Rapids Titans of the Indoor Football League last year. He was an undrafted free agent out of Iowa in 2014.

Last year, the Broncos signed 16 reserve-future players. Center Matt Paradis, WR Bennie Fowler and RB Kapri Bibbs are still with the team. WR Jordan Norwood was also a reserve-future player.
