Broncos Bring Back WR Clifford Russell

The Denver Broncos on Wednesday signed free-agent wide receiver Clifford Russell, Head Coach Mike Shanahan announced.

Russell (5-foot-11, 195 pounds) is a sixth-year player who originally joined the Broncos as a future-contract signee on Dec. 31 and competed with the club in training camp before he was waived on Aug. 30. He tied for the Broncos' lead in receptions (10-86, 8.6 avg.) and returned two kickoffs for 49 yards (24.5 avg.) in the preseason.

In stints with Miami (2005-06), Cincinnati (2004) and Washington (2002-03), Russell has appeared in 21 career games (1 start). He has totaled five career receptions for 45 yards (9.0 avg.) and 39 kickoff returns for 872 yards (22.4 avg.).

After finishing his collegiate career ranked sixth in University of Utah history in both career receptions (124) and receiving yards (1,862), Russell was selected by Washington in the third round (87th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft.

Russell, who attended Campbell High School in Ewa Beach, Hawaii, was born on Feb. 8, 1979.

He will wear No. 10 for the Broncos.
