The Denver Broncos shifted around their practice squad roster on Tuesday, as the team added three new faces according to Gray Caldwell of DenverBroncos.com.

Along with releasing practice squad member Adam Grant to create room, the Broncos officially added linebacker Mike Mohamed, receiver Bert Reed and offensive lineman Darrion Weems to their emergency roster. The most notable of the three, the 24-year-old Mohamed was a sixth-round draft pick out of California last year before being released multiple times by Denver's organization.

Though the 6'3, 245-pound linebacker has not yet recorded an NFL tackle, he has clearly impressed coaches with his hard work and tenacity on the practice field.

Weems, an undrafted rookie tackle out of Oregon, was a driving force for one of the nation's most productive tailbacks in LaMichael James during his college days, but failed to impress coaches in his time with the Indianapolis Colts. Also an undrafted player hoping to stick around on Denver's roster, Reed ranks No. 4 all time at Florida State in receptions and could be an injury away from seeing the field.
