Broncos sign QB Ingle Martin

New, comments

According to Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post, the Broncos have signed QB Ingle Martin after working him out this morning. Martin was a fifth-round selection of the Packers in 2006 after splitting  his college career between the University of Florida and Furman University.

In addition to his time with the Packers, Martin has been a member of the Titans and Chiefs organizations, having dressed for only one game in 2006 while with Green Bay. The native of Memphis, TN is listed at 6'2" and 220 lbs. and just turned 27 on August 15th. Martin has never attempted a pass in the NFL but has 2 rush attempts for minus-5 yards.

Martin played in all four preseason games for the Chiefs in 2008, completing 13 of 25 passes for 185 yards, no TDs or INTs and a QB rating of 76.2.

Martin will reportedly be available to play in Denver's fourth and final game of the preseason, against Arizona on September 3. Backup QB Chris Simms is expected to miss up to a month with a high ankle sprain, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Unless Simms begins the regular season on the PUP (physically-unable-to-perform) list, don't be surprised to see Martin released after the preseason finale.
