Tavarres King was going to be on a 53-man roster with one of the best quarterbacks in the league this week, one way or another.
He decided staying put was worth it.
According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Broncos will waive linebacker Adrian Robinson to clear a roster spot to promote King from the practice squad.
The Packers, running short on wideouts at the moment because of Randall Cobb’s injury, were trying to sign King and that forced the Broncos hand.
“It all happened so fast, it was crazy there for a while,” King said Tuesday. “I didn’t know if I was going to be staying here or moving up to Green Bay. But I love it here. This is where I was drafted. I want this place to be my home. Fortunately for me, I guess I got a little love back.”
King was chosen in the fifth round, but was waived in final cuts and added back to the practice squad when he wasn’t claimed, meaning the Packers or anyone else in the world could have had him without letting him make the decision.
