According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Denver Broncos have signed undrafted rookie guard Andre Davis and undrafted rookie receiver David Porter to contracts.

Davis is a 6'4, 314lb offensive guard of the University of Buffalo. He recently had a tryout with the New York Jets during their rookie minicamp.

He has experience at left tackle and left guard in college, but figures to play inside at the next level. The Broncos do have a need at left guard. They currently have journeyman Shelley Smith and backup Ben Garland competing for the starting job.

David Porter is a 5'11", 205lb receiver out of TCU. He recently had a tryout with the Miami Dolphin's during their rookie minicamp.

He played four seasons at TCU and put up some decent numbers while he was there. During his four-year career at TCU, he totaled 74 receptions for 954 yards, and 10 touchdowns. His best season came in 2014 when he totaled 39 receptions for 392 yards and 3 touchdowns.

While at the Dolphin's rookie minicamp he worked as a returner in their special teams drills. I would expect him to be doing the same while in Denver. The Broncos are in need of a returner, and also added second-year return man Solomon Patton today as well.

These two reported signings will bring the Broncos to a maximum of 90 players on their roster. One more spot will be open when they decide to place rookie tight end Jeff Heuerman on the season-ending injured reserve.
