The Denver Broncos are in the midst of an eight-game losing streak and, after a promising 3-1 start, they’re finally turning their attention to the future on Thursday.
The Broncos worked out 10 players as they begin the process of filling out their futures roster for next season, according to a report from Troy Renck of ABC 7 in Denver.
Wide receivers Keyarris Garrett, Jordan Leslie, Josh Magee and Alonzo Moore, guards Darrell Greene and Tre’ Jackson, tight ends Colin Jeter and Beau Sandland, and quarterbacks Mitch Leidner and Wes Lunt were all in attendance.
Jackson is probably the most notable name. The Florida State product was a fourth-round pick of the New England Patriots at the 2015 NFL Draft.
He played in 13 games and made nine starts as a rookie, but spent the entire 2016 season on the physically unable to perform list with a knee injury. Jackson was waived by New England the following offseason and was then claimed by the Los Angeles Rams, but was also waived by them after he failed his physical.
Over seven months later and presumably with a clean bill of health, Jackson has the potential to add some depth to an offensive line unit that continues to struggle.
A reserve/futures deal guarantees players a spot on the active 90-man roster at the start of the new league year in 2018.
