The Denver Broncos have re-signed tight end Dante Rosario and waived linebacker Mike Mohamed.

With rookie tight end Julius Thomas out for at least two weeks with a high ankle sprain, the Denver Broncos went shopping for a new tight end and wound up bringing back a familiar face, Dante Rosario. According to the Broncos' official Twitter feed, sixth-round draft choice Mike Mohamed was waived in order to make this move.

Rosario played for John Fox as a Carolina Panther is past years and was signed by the Broncos during free agency to compete for the starting tight end job. When Daniel Fells was brought in, Rosario was facing a struggle to make the roster. Rookies Thomas and Virgil Green outplayed him during camp, leaving no spot on the roster for Rosario. Rosario was with the Dolphins to start the season, but he was released earlier this week.

The Broncos can waive the rookie Mohamed since they will likely have D.J. Williams back this week from a dislocated elbow. It wouldn't be surprising if the Broncos signed Mohamed to the practice squad should he clear waivers. Mohamed is the second 2011 draft pick by the Broncos to be let go. Seventh-rounder Jeremy Beal was cut during training camp, but now he is part of the practice squad.
