 ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -The Denver Broncos, who have lost five of their past six games, made a midseason roster shuffle Tuesday, signing four free agents and releasing wide receiver Brian Clark, safety Curome Cox and defensive tackle Amon Gordon.
The Broncos signed wide receiver Taylor Jacobs and defensive ends Larry Birdine, Paul Carrington and Josh Mallard. They also placed rookie defensive end Jarvis Moss, their top draft pick, on injured reserve with a broken right leg that he injured last week.
Coach Mike Shanahan wasn't available Tuesday but a day earlier had insisted the Broncos weren't in rebuilding mode after the team's second loss by more than 30 points this season.
The Broncos have been dreadful on both sides of the ball and have a bevy of starters on injured reserve, including Rod Smith, Stephen Alexander, Nate Jackson and Ebenezer Ekuban.
``If you ever say that you're rebuilding, I think you're trying to give yourself an excuse for not having success right now,'' Shanahan said. ``That's my definition of people using the term 'rebuilding.'
``Do we have some young players? Yeah, we've got some young players. But that doesn't mean that you have to rebuild with young players. There's a standard here and a standard at most places in the National Football League. Given an opportunity, you want to have success. We've got some new people playing different positions, but that surely doesn't mean that we're rebuilding.''
Jacobs is a fifth-year player who was waived by San Francisco on Oct. 2. He played in four games for the 49ers this season, catching three passes for 40 yards and one touchdown. He has played in 50 career games and spent his first three seasons with Washington, which drafted him in the second round in 2003 out of Florida. He was traded to the 49ers last season.
The Broncos are hurting at wide receiver, where No. 1 receiver Javon Walker is out after knee surgery last month and Glenn Martinez bruised his ribs Sunday at Detroit.
After the Broncos' 44-7 loss at Detroit on Sunday, Shanahan said he wasn't giving up on this season.
``My mind-set is never to play for next year,'' he said. ``Never will be.''
