The Broncos signed rookie tight end Dan Light to their practice squad, the team announced on Wednesday. Before signing Light, Denver worked out sixteen players, according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson. Among those players were two quarterbacks and receiver Jordan Norwood's little brother.

Levi Norwood, a 6-2, 200-pound receiver that played for Baylor, averaged 20.2 yards per kick return and 8.7 yards per punt return in college, according to his NFL.com draft profile. He received a 4.99 (out of 10) rating on NFL.com (his hair is arguably a 10 of 10).

Last year, Denver worked out a relative of defensive back Kayvon Webster, but ended up not signing him. In 2008, Denver had two brothers—linebacker Boss Bailey and cornerback Champ Bailey—on the roster, although Boss's time in Denver was short.

The two quarterbacks—Northern Colorado's Seth Lobato and North Carolina's Bryn Renner—are both familiar with Denver, as Broncos reporter Andrew Mason noted. Labto has worked out for the team in the past and Renner spent time with the team last summer and preseason.

The fourteen other players that worked out for Denver are listed below.

Rookie offensive tackle Cameron Jefferson (6-5, 317 lbs.) spent time with the Bears this year. Rookie receiver Jordan Leslie (6-3, 209 lbs.) spent time with the Vikings and Jaguars. Rookie offensive tackle Jack Rummells (6-5, 300 lbs.) spent time with Jacksonville. Rookie receiver Demetrius Wilson (6-3, 198 lbs.) spent time with the Chargers. Second-year running back Ray Agnew III (5-10, 247 lbs.) spent time with the Browns, Cowboys, and Redskins. First-year tight end Brandon Barden (6-4, 253 lbs.) has spent time with the Titans, Jaguars, Chiefs, and Cowboys.

Defensive tackle Alex Bienemann (6-1, 271 lbs.) was a 2014 NFL draft prospect. Rookie tight end Cameron Clear (6-5, 277 lbs.) spent time with the Steelers. First-year receiver Jace Davis (6-1, 206 lbs.) spent time with the Texans. Rookie receiver Antwan Goodley (5-10, 209 lbs.) spent time with Dallas. Rookie receiver R.J. Harris (6-0, 200 lbs.) spent time with the Saints. Rookie center/guard Alex Hill (6-3, 316 lbs.) was a 2015 NFL draft prospect. Rookie tight end Dan Light (6-5, 265 lbs.) spent time with Denver earlier this offseason and was re-signed to the practice squad on Wednesday.

After making a trio of roster moves on Tuesday, Denver was left with one open practice squad spot. The above players may have been auditioning for that position, and Light won out.

Denver's 53-man roster and 10-man practice squad are now full.
