The Denver Broncos on Sunday announced several transactions, including the club being assigned running back Andre Brown (N.Y. Giants) and offensive lineman Chris Clark (Minnesota) off waivers.
Denver also on Sunday waived linebacker Baraka Atkins and running back Bruce Hall while adding five players to its practice squad (see below).
Brown (6-foot-0, 224 pounds) is a second-year running back who was selected by the Giants in the fourth round (129th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft from North Carolina State University. He spent his rookie year on the Giants’ reserve/injured list before leading the club in rushing yards (21-95, 4.5 avg., 1 TD) and kickoff return yards (7-120, 17.1 avg.) in his first action as a pro during the 2010 preseason.
Clark (6-foot-5, 315 pounds) is a first-year offensive lineman who spent the last two seasons on the Vikings’ practice squad after entering the NFL with Tampa Bay in 2008 as a college free agent from the University of Southern Mississippi.
A first-team All-Conference USA pick as a senior at Southern Mississippi, Clark started 39 consecutive games to end his collegiate career. He was an all-district selection at McDonogh High School in New Orleans and was born on Oct. 1, 1985.
