The Denver Broncos cut undrafted rookie free agent Adam Weber on Saturday to reach the 53-man roster limit, but he won't be going very far. Weber's agent, Marc Lillibridge, tweeted on Sunday afternoon that Weber signed on with the Broncos' practice squad.
Weber was undrafted out of Minnesota, where he was teammates with current Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker. Weber was never a real challenger to make the final 53-man roster, despite comments from an anonymous source who believed Weber could overtake Tim Tebow on the depth chart at the end of camp.
Weber didn't play in any preseason game before the final one with the Arizona Cardinals. He did lead the Broncos to their only touchdown, a 43-yard strike to Eron Riley late in the fourth quarter, but for this season he will develop on the practice squad. Developing Weber is a good move by the Broncos, as Tim Tebow is the only quarterback currently signed to a contract for the 2012 season.
