Roundup: Broncos signing OT Ryan Pope, working out veteran linemen 

The Broncos have been in search of depth in the trenches after losing a projected starter last week. Help might be just around the corner.

Denver is signing young offensive tackle Ryan Pope following a Tuesday tryout, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported. Pope spent last year with the Packers but did not appear in a game. He still need to pass a physical, Pelissero added.

The Broncos also plan to work out veteran tackles Dennis Kelly, Cameron Fleming and Bobby Massie on Wednesday. They’re looking for reinforcements in the wake of Ja'Wuan James suffering a torn Achilles a week ago, which created a void at right tackle opposite Garett Bolles.

Here’s other news Around The NFL is monitoring on Tuesday:

  • The Carolina Panthers announced they have hired Cole Spencer as director of college scouting. Spencer was previously a national scout for Washington.
  • The Atlanta Falcons released kicker Elliott Fry, who appeared in one game last season and made his lone field goal attempt.
  • The Cleveland Browns were awarded kicker Chase McLaughlin off waivers and released kicker Matt McCrane in a corresponding move. McLaughlin made four of five field goal kicks last year with the Jaguars and Jets, who waived him last week.
