Denver Broncos Make a Few Practice Squad Moves

Paxton Lynch says farewell to an old friend.

It may be the middle of the season, but the Denver Broncos are still fine-tuning the margins of their roster.

In doing so, Denver made a handful of moves. They signed linebacker Quentin Gause and tight end Steven Scheu, waiving wide receiver Mose Frazier and linebacker Reshard Cliett to make room for the new additions. Gause, a rookie, is now on his third team in his first season. He began as an undrafted free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles and eventually spent time with the New England Patriots. During his career at Rutgers, Gause amassed 223 tackles and three sacks.

Scheu, a Vanderbilt product, also spent time with the Patriots this past summer as a college free agent. In college, he tallied 83 receptions and eight touchdowns. Scheu joins a fellow undrafted tight end, Henry Krieger-Coble, on the practice squad.

It's a particularly disappointing sight to see Frazier have to move on from the Broncos. Anyone who made themselves familiar with Paxton Lynch's tape at Memphis couldn't miss no. 17 on the receiving end of all of those lasers and rockets from Lynch.

The Broncos took a flyer on Frazier right after the draft to pair him with their first-round selection. He certainly made the most of his time in the preseason, hauling in 10 passes for 110 yards. That level of production ultimately set Frazier apart from a cluster of other speedy CFAs vying for a spot on the practice squad.

It's certainly disappointing, but an NFL roster is just a sum of many moving parts, and the parts were moving today.
