Broncos claim WR Solomon Patton off waivers

The Denver Broncos have claimed wide receiver Solomon Patton off waivers, the team’s official website reports.

Patton is expected to be featured as a return man. He played collegiately at Florida and saw spot duty on special teams for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season as a rookie, returning 10 punts for 113 yards (long of 33) and 18 kickoffs for 416 yards.

The Broncos are looking to improve on special teams, specifically on punt returns. Last season’s primary punt returner, Isaiah Burse, finished on the practice squad after failing to show explosiveness. And Wes Welker, who took over in the final weeks of the season, remains a free agent. Jordan Norwood remains in the mix as he recovers from a knee injury suffered during training camp last summer.

The Broncos also signed guard Andre Davis and wide receiver David Porter as college free agents Tuesday.

Jensen played in one game his rookie season and Patton in seven. Patton averaged 23.1 yards on 18 kickoff returns and 11.2 yards on 10 punt returns.

Davis started all 48 games at the University of Buffalo and Porter appeared in 51 games at TCU.
