Denver Broncos Sign WR David Anderson

On Saturday, the Houston Texans placed defensive tackle Amobi Okoye and wide receiver David Anderson on waivers. The Broncos, an interested party, did want Okoye, but he was snatched up by the Chicago Bears. Instead, the Broncos wound up signing Anderson, who was flying to Denver on Saturday night.

Coloradans may be familiar with Anderson from his career with the Colorado St. Rams (2002-2005). He went on to the NFL as a seventh-round draft pick by the Houston Texans in 2006. He's been a rarely used receiver in Houston, having a career best year in 2009 (38 receptions, 370 yards).

The Broncos could use depth at the wide receiver position. The top three slots are for Brandon Lloyd, Eddie Royal and Eric Decker. Demaryius Thomas is out for several weeks into the regular season and most of the other receivers on the training camp roster are less than exciting. The team did sign several undrafted rookie free agent wide receivers.
