A total of five former Denver Broncos have now landed with new teams since being cut on Friday.  Rookie wide receiver Gerell Robinson became the fifth player to land on his feet when he signed with the Arizona Cardinals‘ practice squad over the weekend.

The Broncos played Arizona on Friday and Robinson caught two passes for 31 yards.  More impressive than those stats were Robinson’s 77 catches for 1,397 yards and seven scores during his senior year at Arizona State last fall, right in the Cardinals’ backyard.

The Broncos originally signed Robinson as a college free agent in April but despite having played with Broncos’ rookie quarterback Brock Osweiler at ASU, Robinson was unable to make Denver’s active roster — or practice squad.  Robinson was beat-out by first-year receiver Greg Orton, the only receiver that made Denver’s practice squad.

The Broncos currently have Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Matt Willis, Andre Caldwell and Brandon Stokley on the active roster.  If an injury occurs or the team finds itself in need of another receiver during the season, Orton will likely be activated.

We wish Robinson the best of luck with the Cardinals.  It would have been nice to stash him for down the road, but he’s likely glad to be back in Arizona.
