Denver Broncos Sign Veteran Wide Receiver Marlon Brown, Waive Running Back Cyrus Gray

The Broncos added to their WR depth chart on Wednesday.

Even with training camp just two days away, the Denver Broncos are still tweaking their roster. They waived undrafted rookie long-snapper Nathan Theus on Tuesday to make room for rookie linebacker Darnell Sankey

Today, the Broncos announced their signing of veteran wide receiver Marlon Brown. Unfortunately, a corresponding roster move was required to open up a spot. Running back Cyrus Gray was waived. 

Brown went undrafted out of Georgia in 2013, but quickly found a home with then defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. In his three seasons with the Ravens, Brown caught 87 balls for 891 yards and seven touchdowns. His best season came in 2013 as a rookie, where he caught all seven of his career touchdowns.

At 6-foot-5, 214 pounds, Brown brings great size to the table. He has a year of experience in Denver's system, as he was on Baltimore's roster while Gary Kubiak was the offensive coordinator in 2014. 

The Broncos had successes bringing in another Kubiak recruit from his time in Baltimore—safety Darian Stewart. The Broncos hope they can follow suit with the signing of Brown. 

Brown is coming off two sub-par seasons, the last of which he finished on injured reserve (back). As an experienced veteran, he will compete with the likes of DeVier PoseyMose FrazierJordan Taylor and Durron Neal to push the bottom of the WR depth chart.
