The Denver Broncos may be looking to add another former Kansas University football to the three they already have on their roster.
According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, the Broncos recently hosted wide receiver Nigel King for a workout. Denver has a roster spot available after fifth-year pro Kyle Williams suffered a season-ending injury during a recent practice.
King worked out with Denver on Sunday but was not offered a contract, according to Cameron Wolfe of The Denver Post, who cited an NFL source as the place he learned that King had not signed with the Broncos.
King, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound wideout with good speed and hands who transferred to KU from Maryland for the 2014 season, finished last season with 537 yards and a touchdown on 30 receptions in 12 games and elected to forgo his final season of eligibility to enter the NFL. He went undrafted last April and initially got a tryout with the Miami Dolphins following the draft.
King, who spent the first few years of his college career at Maryland, was waived by Miami just last week.
Should he somehow wind up with the Broncos, King would join cornerbacks Chris Harris and Aqib Talib and linebacker Steven Johnson as the Jayhawks on Denver's roster.
