The Denver Broncos on Tuesday signed offensive lineman Chris Myers to their active roster. Myers was signed from Denver's practice squad, where he spent the first four weeks of the 2005 season. Safety Curome Cox was waived to make room on the roster for Myers.
Myers (6-5, 300 pounds) is a rookie who was selected by the Broncos in the sixth round (200th overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft. The 24-year-old was a three-year starter at the University of Miami who started at both guard positions, right tackle and center while twice earning all-conference recognition.
Myers started 38 consecutive games for the Hurricanes from 2002-04 and was credited with allowing only 4.5 sacks during that time. As a senior in 2004, he started all 12 games at right tackle and was named second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference.
At Palmetto High School in Miami, Myers was a Miami Herald 6A-5A all-state selection and was chosen to compete in the Florida vs. California All-Star Game.
Chris Myers was born Sept. 15, 1981, in Miami.
