Broncos Sign a Cornerback.

August 24, 2009

antwainspannThe Broncos this week signed Cornerback Antwain Spann off waivers from Buffalo this week. An ex-New England Patriot, he is the sixth player on our 80 man roster to play for New England under Josh McDaniels at some point in his career. 

The Broncos decided to waive undrafted rookie Wide Receiver Travis Shelton from the roster to make room for Spann. 

Spann (6-foot-0, 200 pounds) is a fourth-year player who competed in training camp with the Bills before he was waived on Friday. He played for New England from 2006-08 and entered the NFL with the New York Giants in 2005 as a college free agent from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette

Spann saw time in a career-high 10 games with the Patriots last year and registered four tackles on special teams and one defensive stop.

As a senior at Louisiana-Lafayette, Spann started all 11 games at cornerback and had 68 tackles (36 solo) along with a team-high four interceptions. He played two years at Louisiana-Lafayette after transferring from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
