Broncos sign WR David Moore from Raiders practice squad and promote QB Brett Rypien to active roster


ENGLEWOOD, Colorado – With KJ Hamler’s knee injury that ended the season, the Broncos have added depth to their vast receiving body.

Denver has signed wide receiver David Moore from the Raiders practice team, the team announced Tuesday.

The Broncos also promoted quarterback Brett Rypien from their practice team to the active roster.

Denver placed Hamler and linebacker Jonas Griffith on the injured reserve in the corresponding moves.

Moore, a former Seattle seventh-round pick, has caught 78 passes for 1,163 yards and 13 touchdowns in his career. In 2020, he started six games for the Seahawks and appeared in the 16 as he caught 35 passes for 417 yards and six touchdowns, a career-high.

Moore joins Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, Diontae Spencer and Kendall Hinton on the active Broncos roster. Jerry Jeudy is expected to return from IR later this season.

Rypien, a sophomore, earned his only start to his career when he led Denver to a victory over the Jets last season. The Broncos now have three quarters in their active roster.

The Broncos also announced that they have protected the following players on their practice team: tackle Quinn Bailey, wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland, linebacker Curtis Robinson and guard Austin Schlottmann.
