The Denver Broncos added Minnesota Gophers quarterback Adam Weber as an undrafted rookie free agent on Tuesday morning. Weber tweeted: "I'm headed out to Denver to join the Broncos!" This now brings the Broncos' reported total of undrafted rookie free agents to 10 (two players were erroneously reported as signed last night).
Weber as a four-year starter for the Gophers from 2007 through 2010. He completed 57 percent of his passes and had a 72:51 touchdown-to-interception rate. He did run the ball quite a bit his first two years, but didn't do much of it after that.
His college teammate is current Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker, which may have had some impact on this signing decision. The Broncos are expected to sign another quarterback should Kyle Orton be traded. Weber is more likely to wind up on the practice squad than on the active roster at any point in this upcoming season.
