ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos signed safety Steve Cargile and running back Andre Hall to their practice squad, Head Coach Mike Shanahan announced.

Cargile (6-foot-2, 210 pounds) is a second-year safety who most recently was on Tampa Bay's roster during its 2006 training camp before he was waived by the club on Sept. 2. Cargile entered the NFL with Dallas as an undrafted free agent from Columbia University on April 30, 2004.

Cargile, who spent the 2005 season out of football, spent the majority of his rookie year in 2004 on the Cowboys' practice squad. He was signed to Dallas' active roster for their regular-season finale in 2004 but was inactive for that contest (at N.Y. Giants, 1/2/05).

After playing his first three years at Columbia as a wide receiver, Cargile moved to safety as a senior and started 10 games that year while leading the school with 99 tackles as a second-team All-Ivy League selection.

An all-state receiver and all-conference safety at St. Peter Chanel High School in Bedford, Ohio, Steve Cargile was born June 2, 1982.

Hall (5-foot-10, 205 pounds) is a rookie running back who had been out of football after Chicago waived him Sept. 1. Signed by Tampa Bay on May 1 as an undrafted free agent from the University of South Florida, Hall was in training camp with the Buccaneers but was waived by the club on July 21.

Hall finished his two-year career at South Florida as the school's all-time leading rusher with 2,731 yards on 480 carries (5.7 avg.) along with 24 touchdowns. A first-team All-Big East Conference selection in 2005, Hall totaled 12 career 100-yard rushing games for his career and had three career games with at least 200 rushing yards at South Florida. He also caught 44 passes for 470 yards (10.7 avg.) with three scores and returned 16 kickoffs for 332 yards (20.8) during his career at USF.

Before beginning his career at South Florida, Hall was a two-time NJCAA All-American at Georgia Military Academy (2002) and at Garden City Community College in Kansas (2003).

Hall, who scored 26 touchdowns as a senior at Dixie Hollins High School in St. Petersburg, Fla., was born Aug. 20, 1982.
