As of now WR Tavarres King is still a Bronco. Packers want him on 53 but Broncos trying to keep him. May not know til tomorrow.— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) October 14, 2013
The Packers are getting thin at receiver after injuries to Randall Cobb, and James Jones after yesterdays win against the Baltimore Ravens. Cobb is out multiple weeks with a knee injury, and Jones suffered a PCL Sprain. Now It seems like the Packers could be eyeing the Broncos fifth round pick Tavarres King. King was surprisingly cut when the Broncos roster was trimmed down to 53 players, and then was placed on the Denver Broncos practice squad.
Klis does say that the Broncos want to keep him.

It looks like King believes he's heading to Green Bay. There's a few ways the Broncos could avoid losing King. One is offering him more money. Practice squad players make $5,700 a week, and $96,900 for an entire season. Another way Is too add King to the 53 man roster. I personally would be surprised If King didn't end up on the Packers roster. He has a much better chance at playing time with them then he does here with the Broncos.
