In wake of long snapper Casey Kreiter’s calf injury, the Broncos went out and signed ten year veteran Thomas Gafford to the roster.
As @MikeKlis reported, Broncos signed LS Thomas Gafford and waived NT Darius Kilgo. Casey Kreiter week-to-week with calf injury.
Gafford has long snapped for the Kansas City Chiefs, Chicago Bears, and Oakland Raiders.
The move to add him to the roster is one that Broncos fans are most likely not going to enjoy. The team decided to waive second year nose tackle Darius Kilgo.
That part made the least amount of sense. It is a huge roll of the dice since Sylvester Williams is the only nose tackle on the roster. Granted they have Kyle Peko on the practice squad, it still makes little sense.
