Brandon Tate worked out for Broncos

The Broncos kept six wide receivers on their initial 53-man roster, but there may be a change to the group if Denver liked what it saw in a recent tryout.

PFT has learned, via a league source, that the Broncos worked out Brandon Tate after Tate was cut by the Bengals as Cincinnati dropped to 75 players last week.

If Tate does join the team, the biggest impact will come on special teams. Tate has been a punt and kick returner throughout his time with the Bengals and the Broncos cut Kalif Raymond, who had the most opportunities in both areas during the preseason. Last year’s leading kickoff returner Omar Bolden is also gone.

They did keep wide receiver Jordan Norwood, who set a Super Bowl record with a 61-yard punt return but only has two career kickoff returns.
