Garrett Grayson signed to Broncos practice squad

The Denver Broncos have signed former Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson to its practice squad. Grayson played at CSU from 2011-14, and helped lead the Rams to its first bowl game in five years during the 2013 season.

According to Nicki Jhabvala of the Athletic, Grayson is taking wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie’s spot on the practice squad. McKenzie was promoted to Denver’s active roster Wednesday morning, after the Broncos released backup QB Chad Kelly.

A third round draft pick of the New Orleans Saints in 2015, Grayson has yet to find his footing in the NFL. Grayson has spent time with the Saints, Patriots and Falcons, but the former CSU superstar was phenomenal in his collegiate career.

In four seasons at Colorado State, Grayson completed 62 percent of his passes and tossed 67 touchdowns. In his junior and senior seasons, Grayson was particularly impressive though. In 27 games between 2013 and 2014, Grayson racked up 7, 702 yards and completed 567 of his 898 attempts (63 percent).
