Kingsbury signed by Denver!!
 
Broncos sign Kingsbury to practice squad

September 6, 2005
DENVER (AP) -- The Denver Broncos signed quarterback Kliff Kingsbury to their practice squad Tuesday, putting the former Texas Tech star in the position held last season by Matt Mauck.

Kingsbury was a sixth-round draft pick by New England in 2003 and spent that whole season on injured reserve. He was on the New Orleans practice squad last year and was waived by the Saints on Aug. 29.

At Texas Tech, he became only the third player in college football history to throw for more than 10,000 career yards.

When the Broncos released Mauck, many thought they would try to bring him back if he cleared waivers. But Mauck pursued other options and wound up on the practice squad of the Tennessee Titans.

The Broncos are carrying only two quarterbacks on their active roster, Jake Plummer and Bradlee Van Pelt.

I told you he wouldn't make the practice squad. He is better than Bouman... which should have been cut in my opinion.

I certainly can't say I'm surprised by this.

Other than 1 long strike to Michael Lewis, I didn't see anything out of him that I'm gonna miss.

I wish him luck though.

He cleared waivers. The Saints could have put him on the practice squad, but chose not to.

Bouman showed a little something in that last preseason game. I'm not as worried now.

We do some of the dumbest stuff. I did hear Bouman did play a fairly good game in the last preseason game, but as the old saying goes, "Even a blind squirel finds an acorn now and then.

I don't know, maybe the fans should be fired, were crazy anyway. :monkey:
