The Denver Broncos announced a pair of roster moves today, cutting seldom-used linebacker Adrain Robinson, and calling up wide receiver Tavarres King from the practice squad.

Per the Denver Post:

The Broncos waived linebacker Adrian Robinson with the intent of adding King to their 53-man roster as soon as he signs the paperwork.

“It all happened so fast, it was crazy there for a while,” King said Tuesday. “I didn’t know if I was going to be staying here or moving up to Green Bay. But I love it here. This is where I was drafted. I want this place to be my home. Fortunately for me, I guess I got a little love back.”


I wrote a scouting report on King leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft, where he was eventually selected by the Broncos in the fifth round after a standout career at the University of Georgia.

With so many talented receivers ahead of him, it will be hard for King to make an impact on anything other than special teams.
