QB Kinsbury signed to practice squad

The Denver Broncos have signed quarterback Kliff Kingsbury to their practice squad. All eight spots on Denver's practice squad are now filled.

Kingsbury (6-4, 210 pounds) is a first-year player who was waived by New Orleans on Aug. 29 after competing in its 2005 training camp and on its practice squad during the 2004 season. The 26-year-old was selected by New England in the sixth round (201st overall) of the 2003 NFL Draft and spent his entire rookie season on its injured reserve list with an arm injury.

Kingsbury completed 10-of-21 passes (47.6%) for 139 yards with one interception in two games (0 starts) for the Saints in the 2005 preseason.

At Texas Tech University, he became only the third player in college football history to throw for more than 10,000 career yards while setting several Big 12 Conference and school passing records. A first-team all-conference choice and the Associated Press' Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year as a senior, Kingsbury completed 1,231-of-1,883 career passes (65.4%) for 12,429 yards with 95 touchdowns and 40 interceptions in 43 games.

Kingsbury, who threw for 3,009 career yards with 34 touchdowns at New Braunfels High School in New Braunfels, Texas, was born Aug. 9, 1979, in San Antonio.
