ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -The Denver Broncos augmented their secondary Monday by claiming hard-hitting safety Calvin Lowry off waivers from Tennessee.
An 11-game starter last season, Lowry was a surprise cut by the Titans, who selected him in the fourth round of the 2006 draft out of Penn State. He has 62 tackles, two interceptions and 12 pass breakups in two NFL seasons.
The Broncos waived safety Roderick Rogers, a second-year pro from Wisconsin and announced the additions of defensive end Ryan McBean, running back P.J. Pope and wide receiver Travis Wilson to round out their practice squad.
The Broncos' secondary wasn't at full strength during training camp as Champ Bailey (hamstring) and Hamza Abdullah (groin) missed time with injuries.
Lowry could provide the Broncos with the type of hard hitter they've lacked in run support since John Lynch left the team in July after being bumped from his starting role.
