Quan Cosby Signs With Denver Broncos, Jeremiah Johnson Waived; John Nalbone Joins Practice Squad

Quan Cosby is now a Denver Broncos wide receiver, as Eddie Royal's injury will keep him out for at least two weeks.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Denver Broncos announced three roster moves. First, wide receiver Quan Cosby was signed to active roster. In order to clear roster space for him, running back Jeremiah Johnson was waived. The other move was the addition of tight end John Nalbone to the practice squad.

Cosby played in 32 games for the Cincinnati Bengals over the last two seasons, but he was let go during the final cuts and waiver wire process. He was used more as a punt and kick returner than as a receiver, but he will likely wind up playing in the slot for the Broncos. At 28, Cosby got a late in football because he played minor league baseball for several years.

Johnson joined the Broncos' active roster last week after it was clear that Knowshon Moreno was not going to play. However, it now appears that Moreno has a better chance at playing this week with this move.

Nalbone was a fifth-round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2009, but his only NFL action came in two games during the 2010 season. The Broncos are down to two wide receivers following Julius Thomas' injury, but adding another tight end to the roster is not in the air right now.
